I removed this comment from my blog, then decided to share it with you anyway:
My dear Quilly,
I been watching you from my far. Please say you marry me. You strong, handsome, brave. I be good wife. I know you good man have good heart.
I am inclined to answer this one. She does seem to be in dire need — of glasses!
Could you come to my blog and leave a comment without noticing that I am female? There is a huge photo of me in the sidebar! And JiaoJin isn’t the only idiot out there. I get a lot of spam comments that start, “Hey Buddy ….” I know spammers aren’t very scrupulous or very bright, but since they are trying to make a living you think they’d take the 2 seconds required to discern whether I was male or female before posting their desperate pleas for whatever scam they’re running. I mean, it would up their odds of being taken seriously, wouldn’t it?
