    I got a text earlier from this spamming company who send me countless emails and countless texts ALL THE TIME, and it really annoys me.

    So i just replied to their text saying **** off. It was a proper mobile number.

    Can i get into trouble for that?

    (sorry such a goody goody worrier )
    Your query is about as stupid as your username.

    You wear a bedsheet and a pointed hood, find an ethnic minority and tell them to **** off?
