Since I added the Contact link on my weblog, I have been getting all sorts of strange emails about asylum, sex, marriage and other topics. However, what made my day last weekend was an email that someone had received. Here is the email that was forwarded to me.
I got your contact from the cyberspace on my search for a sincere man who is marriage minded and have value for love and friendship and recognized the significant of having a good and sincere relationship, so I saw your profile on http://www.zackvision.com/weblog/2004/05/commenters-marriage.html and decided to contact you and I hope my proposition to be your friend will not be an exemption.
Well I am Vick Mazur as you may know me and I am from Russia, which my father is from Russia and my mother is from Liberia but at present I live and work in the Republic of Benin in a Charity Organization but I am a very good girl from a good family, my hobbies are playing basketball, reading the bible, working hard and watching movies. I dislike people that lies and dishonest things, i am not too fat and not too thin, i am average in height, i do not smoke nor drink, white in complexion with blonde hair and a nice eye ball and i am also a easy going lady but i will leave that for you to to judge when we start this friendship and I hope you are satisfy with this little details about me and I will also pray to God to make our friendship last longer without regretting knowing each others.
Please I will like to stop for now, kindly tell me more about yourself, your profession and country so as to march one more step towards forever, honest and sincere friendship and I will send you my picture when I hear from you.

Here is a blog post by the cousin of the person who received this email.
When I checked my spam folder later, I found out that Vick had sent the same email to my very spammy email address which I don’t use for my blog as well. Did I mention that the subject of the email was “I saw your profile on http://www.zackvision.com/weblog/2004/05/commenters-marriage.html”.
So finally I have accomplished something with this blog. I have become famous. Spammers are now referring to my blog posts in their emails. Ain’t life grand!
Oh and do read my famous post and all the comments there.
