To lie or keep in hiding, as for some evil reason. To move or go in a mean, stealthy manner.

This is a special "email-athon" issue of WebSkulker. It's like a charity telethon except by email, and just like any telethon, we will beg and grovel and keep telling you that whatever you do isn't enough. Our goal is to double the number of subscribers to WebSkulker and we want this to happen all in one day, today.
is what you need to do to help. DO IT NOW! Click on this
If each of you gets one friend to subscribe, that will double our list. But one friend isn't enough! We need each of you to get two friends, three friends, tens of friends, to subscribe to make up for the lazy jr. skulkers out there who will not contribute.
FILL OUT THE FORM NOW. Fill it out again with five more names! You aren't doing enough. We need more names!
If you want to know what the emails generated by the form look like, just think like a skulker and put in your own email address where your friends' addresses belong.
Go to http://www.centrecom.com
, read about their service, and press the button "Get your free
account now". Fill out the information truthfully, because
someone from their company will call you back to make sure you are
legitimate before activating the account. Where it asks for the
number of the friend who referred you, please give WebSkulker's
number, (888)591-5915, as they will then give us a small referral
credit. You can get the same credit after you sign up and tell
your friends about this.
You may notice
a price of 4.5 cents per minute on their web site. This is only
if you connect to their service from your PC using the Microsoft
Netmeeting product. This is kind of fun and we will talk about Netmeeting
and the interface between CentreCom and Netmeeting in the next
issue. But normally you would be calling your 888 number with a
regular phone at the prices of 8 cents plus maybe 6 cents per
minute. But all of this is of course free for you to play with
because they give you $50 in your account to try out the service.
Sign up with
CentreCom and wait until they assign you a personal 888 number.
Once you figure it out, it is as easy to use as a prepaid calling card and does the identical job.
Your CentreCom number also has a "follow me" feature which means that you can enter up to three phone numbers plus a pager number where you might be reached at this time. When someone calls your 888 number, CenterCom's system will ring all those numbers and send a page simultaneously. If it can find you, it will connect you live to the person waiting, otherwise it will invite them to leave a message. The documentation on their web site isn't too good so we will explain more in the next issue.

A young ventriloquist is touring the clubs & stops to entertain at a bar in a small town. He's going through hisusual run of stupid blonde jokes, when a big blonde woman in the 4th row stands on her chair and says: "I've heard just about enough of your stupid blonde jokes, Asshole. What makes you think you can stereotype women that way? What does a person's physical attributes have to do with their worth as a human being? It's guys like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in my community and from reaching my full potential as a person... because you and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes, but women in general, all in the name of humor."
Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to apologize, when the blonde pipes up, "You stay out of this mister, I'm talking to that little bastard on your knee!"
