So, spammers have found Mysterious Matters. I suppose I should be grateful, in a way. Now readers of Mysterious Matters have more sources for buying Viagra and more options for purchasing opioids from foreign nations.
I must say, some of these spammers are as creative as the mystery novelists who send me their manuscripts. They don't post on the most recent blog entries; rather, they go a bit into the past, with the idea that the "Webmaster" (I guess that's me) is less likely to monitor those posts and delete them.
And they are so complimentary! One's head could swell quite a bit from all the raves. Thank you, spammers, for letting me know how much Mysterious Matters has changed your life, how you recommend it to everyone, and how the content is consistently fascinating and helpful.
Spammers from Germany and France: It's wonderful to know that Mysterious Matters speaks to you. I appreciate all your comments in French and German - they add such a cosmpolitan feel to the blog! I wish more Scandinavian spammers would find me, as I'm sure they have great things to say about crime fiction from that much-desired part of the world.
I'm not sure I understand what Mysterious Matters has to do with Xbox games; are you implying that those who play Call of Duty and Halo frequently take breaks from video games to pick up the latest James Patterson thriller? Yes, I think that's what you're implying, so thanks! I welcome the many useful comments from video game devotees/readers of thrillers.
So many of you make the very kind offer to help me buy Twitter followers. I can't think of anything I want more! My self-esteem is directly tied to the number of people following me on Twitter, so the more people I can purchase, the better. This is money well spent, so please send details regarding rates, as well as information regarding the demographics of these newly purchased friends.
Interestingly, those who promise to help me burn belly fat (how did you know I need to do that?) also have a lot of questions about my blogging platform, my server, and all of that. I'm not sure how my choice of Typepad as a blogging platform fits into magical methods of losing weight/picking up beautiful women, but I'm going to take it on faith that they are related, as the Internet knows more about these things than I do.
Dr. Oz, many thanks for your many comments on the blog. I have always felt that lovers of crime fiction are the most health-conscious people in America, so your posts are much appreciated.
On the negative side, I am saddened to report that, based on these comments, I have to make the following assumptions about the readers of Mysterious Matters: (1) They have bad credit and need loans, (2) They are looking to purchase overpriced swing sets for their children, (3) Their vacuum cleaners do not work, (4) They are rather puny and need supplements to build massive muscles, and (5) They are imprisoned and are looking for a way to break out of jail. But we are democratic here at Mysterious Matters, and we love all of you!
