well this has gone from a slight nuisance, to just plain creepy..
I've been bugged time to time by these silly websites (there's more than one) with the usual subject header "SOMEONE HAS A CRUSH ON YOU".. now, for a brief cheesy moment, you think to yourself "cool, I got a secret admirer? kickass.. hope she's hot..". That's before you quickly realise, NO.. it is in fact yet another lame marketing / spammer scheme.. set to sucker you in with your base curiousity to hunt down said "crush", with cryptic clues and so forth.. leading not to any prized knowledge.. but, merely more poor victims to be targeted also by "SOMEONE HAS A CRUSH ON YOU" e-mails.. it's a vicious cycle and I try to do my bit to avoid 'em..
this of course, is old news to anyone bored enough to read this rant..
now, today.. checking my e-mail (just 5 minutes ago) I'm confronted not only by ANOTHER crush e-mail.. but also, this other really creepy e-mail.. simply with the subject header "I LOVE YOU". Ok, sure this in some naive world view could be geniune and none too creepy, and if so.. "hi.. and thank you, I appreciate it", but.. wot makes me all-together creeped out.. is that this e-mail has seemingly been sent to me by an e-mail address "unknown" and seemingly anonymous (which isn't altogether easy.. we're talking hacker skills here..)
so, I haven't even opened this e-mail.. coz in my ever fervent paranoia (somewhat based on actual fact).. I'm thinking it's simply a new front in some sick viral assault.. (or, an old survivor from a previous and quite famous global pandemic, the "I LOVE YOU" virus..)
which as an idea itself, just makes me sick..
first off, you have idiotic mass marketing / spam companys flooding me with e-mails with false crushes to sucker me in.. and NOW, I'm also gettin' e-mails (quite likely a virus) saying "I LOVE YOU"..
some people are lonely and depressed enough for fall for this shit.. and they get screwed by it..
but it's shit like this, that seriously just urks me..
all apologies if I am dealing with some geniune um, er.. admirer.. (heh.. how about THAT for an unlikely concept :-)
coz, although it is a rather abstract way to do it.. (and, unlikely I'm gonna go to any extent to follow this up..), I do appreciate the effort if it's geniune.. but, this is me being Mr. Positive Outlook.. "the world is a shiny place full of fluffy bunnies, smiling flowers and cutesy twinkly music.." in my usual day to day bitter sinicism, I don't believe this shit for a second..
if you're just prankin' or looking to fuck my PC up with viruses..
you fuckers are SICK!
your tactics make me SICK!
and I'll have no patience for you..
see me with a cheesy grin as I say.. "FUCK OFF!"
anywaze.. here's me pressing delete on those 2 e-mails..
just say no kids!
