Unhappy I am a computer idot-recved email that freaked me out-can anyone explain??

I am new to online marketing and I have just started to build a downline where these people contact me on a regular basis. One person keeps emailing me say he has a "proxy program" so he can see me but I can't see him. Can anyone explain to me what this guy is talking about he stated that this should be just between him and me. Can he see what I am doing on my computer? Sorry if this sounds stupid but I am a computer numbskull....I hope someone can enlighten me.

Well, chances are he is just being a dork and trying to sound sweet when he really isn't. He is just hiding behind a proxy so you can't see him. Just ignore him.

By "I can see you but you can't see me" All he is trying to say is you can't see him because of him being behind a proxy, a mask. He can't see what your doing on you computer, but he could get your IP basically.

I should be a mod here, I know so much abotu computers

So why don't you send a pm to david and ask him about being a mod since you know so much about computers.

also if you posted the e-mails he sent you that might help to clarify what he is trying to say.

There are only 10 kinds of people in this world. Those who can read binary, and those who can't.

I wasn't kidding

I'm just trying to get a feel for the place too, get to know people. I have no idea if all of you mods are friends or what.
