A few months ago I foolishly joined some pen-pal website, put my email address in it. Of course I immediately began getting junk mail, tons of junk mail. I tried to go back and delete it but there was no way to delete the profile. I emailed the owner and asked for my profile to be deleted, but dunno if they ever did or not. I even forget the site now, it has been so long.
The major traffic from it dried up a bit, but I think that's only because my name was pushed on down the list by new idjits who signed up.
And now I get at least one or two emails a week, sometimes less, sometimes more, from people saying they have seen my profile. Some of them say they saw my profile on "DreamBook." Well, this was NOT the site I joined. I went to this DreamBook site and a flag came up saying it was not safe, so I was unable to peruse it to find my supposed profile.
Anyway. Most of these emails I get from there are marriage proposals. Some of them are short and sweet, some of them are sprinkled with promises of large amounts of cash from a dead relative, and some of them are just...well...here's an example. You tell me what you think.

Heh heh heh.
I didn't even bother bursting this gal's bubble by emailing her back and saying; "Sorry darling, can't share your passion. I am an old married woman with a kid already." Hopefully Aviss will find someone to share her passion with.
Any takers to associate in divinity? Let me know, I'll forward her email address to you.
