I'm trying to figure out if I've been spammed or not.

A day or two ago, I recieved a message on my Friendster page from a woman who certainly looked attractive, basically saying she was new in town and wanted to meet new friends, and providing her e-mail address.

What the hell.

I wrote back a short message, decent, explaining some things to do in Minneapolis.

I just got a response. And I'll be diddle-darned if it doesn't look like an actual person writing it; it doesn't have your normal spamese, and my name is attached (not magicmarmot or my friendster name).

It does however steer me to a website which (she says in the e-mail) contains topless photos.

It's waaaay to suspicious for me to believe anything but a click-through marketing ploy, but it sure seems like an awful lot of work to go to.

So I check around a bit...

Sure enough.

Well, hell.
