You can only leave a post up spoofing someone else’s well thought out contest for so long. Particularly when the spoofee is not amused. Anytime it takes a while to write a humor post, I tend to want it to get increased exposure. So I leave it up an extra day. It doesn’t happen often, but Mr. Fab inspired me. Plus, with having company here and an actual job, things can be rather busy. This week has been something. I got into a war of words with a blogger from an extremely stupid site about a post that was misleading. And yes, I know I should just mind my own business. It wasn’t as though she was writing critiques of this Tape Radio site. And maybe I was pissed that her site had been up twelve hours and already had a better Technorati rating.
Of course I generally say I don’t care about that shit. If I get a few comments an enjoyed writing the post, I think that should be enough. But somehow you do scratch your head and wonder. How come how many links you have means success or failure? Or better yet, how should I answer this email I received today?
“Hello, it is Lena.
I find your email in internet and I wished to write to you.You do not know me… and I do not know you. But I trust in destiny and I hope that destiny give me a chance….I want to find a kind, honest and clever man. I want to start a relations with him, but here nobody in whom I am interesting…Maybe you do not want to talk with me… this is ok… But if your trust in destiny, I will waiting for your email.You may write me here: firstname.lastname@example.orgI hope, I can see your letter soon. Sincerely, Lena.”
So emailing the Budman is Lena’s destiny? She knows me, she says in her broken English. Not enough to know my name, but knows none the less. I’d love to meet the moron who responds to this shit. “This could be my true love. I am just $19,056 short of the $20,000 that it will cost me to help her immigrate here from what ever third world country from which she wants to escape.”
You got any money to lend him?
