Unintentionally funny quote part-way through an otherwise sweaty WSJ article trying to make trouble for MySpace:
[James Kalyn] kept receiving friend requests from half-naked female strangers through his MySpace page. Clicking on a request usually led to a profile that turned out to be an ad for a pornography site. At first, Mr. Kalyn was excited that “these hot girls allegedly wanted to be my friend.” But after looking at a few profiles, he realized: “If it’s a picture of someone fairly attractive, they’re probably not my friend in real life.”
Reminds me of an email joke that got forwarded around a few years ago:
Re: Warning. Please forward to women friends
Please forward this e-mail to all your women friends:
If a man knocks on your front door and says heâ€™s conducting a survey and asks you to show him your breasts, donâ€™t. This is a scam – he only wants to see your breasts.
P.S. I wish I’d received this e-mail yesterday. I feel so stupid and cheap.
