Here is, in a nutshell, why MySpace sucks big time. Witness an unedited, unsolicited e-mail to me from one of MySpace's finest:
"hey i like ur profile
add me to ur myspace buddy list
do u use yahoo whats ur screename
ur a sexy angel in heaven
ur a beautiful centerfold
ur as pretty as a rose
hugs and kisses"
(Name withheld to protect the moronic)
Well, Name Withheld, I'm a fairly well-educated, curmudgeonly, middle-aged woman who thinks UR in need of some help. UR not impressing me with your UR compliments. Especially since my profile features just a headshot of me with devil horns. It's not pretty - it's just pretty accurate. UR not going to get me to respond to UR e-mail.
Please consider writing in complete sentences and reviewing my profile a bit more accurately. Then UR gonna be doin' better, Name Withheld.
(I have a MySpace account solely to read the journals of a handful of people. I may just have to ditch it altogether...)
