My YM got hacked :(

I’m so sorry peeps! By now 101% of you guys have already received that ‘stupid’ email with a ‘stupid’ link from so-called ME :(
Please do not click on the link. My Yahoo email got hacked – apparently! Idiotic hackers. 
Millions of apologies to all of you out there. 
I’m thankful there are many out there who actually really know me and my style. Barbs sent me an email asking me if I really did send those emails. Kev and Kimmy sent me emails telling me that my email got hacked. Eugene the dude told me that he knew to ignore it as that is definitely NOT my style of emailing. Claire also buzzed me to seek clarification. 
I’m just so sorry guys! I’m sorry for all the inconvenience caused. 
To all, let me just tell you this, I don’t normally send an email to a group of people. I don’t forward stuff too unless to Kimmy. I DO however, email you personally. The email will always be from ME to YOU and only YOU. Rarely or never will I attach anything in the mail. 
I don’t open forwarded mails too. Still, I don’t have the slightest idea HOW IN THE WORLD I got hacked! Boo hoo hoo! :( Darn!

    no problem :) it was strange to receive an email from you without any messages but just a link. this is the 2nd time from you. I got it once last year from you too. So what do you do? change your email address or can you still use the old one?
