I, too, have fallen victim to the mass marketing spam
scam known as crushlink
Feeling somewhat the irascible
combination of vulnerable and cocky, I was willing to suspend my disbelief and actually believe that someone or something would have a crush on me and then deign to broadcast
it via the internet.
Fearing a virus, I clicked on the link anyway. When I saw that this manipulative hook was merely a way to get one to supply the names and email addresses of all one's close friends and potential lust objects, I still wasn't convinced it was a sham, but neither was I willing to stoop to entering those precious names. No, instead I chose to contact several choice friends via email, demanding to know which joker sent me this shit.
No positive replies, only puzzlement.
I decided to do a search on the crushlink beast, and found that I am but a pawn, one of many who have suffered humiliation at the hands of corporate america.
Why does this travesty continue to be perpetrated?
Well, simply put: because we are vulnerable, lost lonely beings looking for love in all the wrong places.
