Maybe, it's just a stalker.

Ugh... I really hope the mods do something about this before it becomes out of hand.  There is nothing I hate more than SPAM.  Same thing happens on hi5 and forced me to cancel my account.

Even better, we got a Giantbomb Ho-Bag that does not know that commas exist. Hurrah!

I think she clearly wants some Cyber action, it would have had a shopping site of some sort if it were spam.

It could well be a sick dude you know playing a trick on you, waiting for you to reply with some sleazy crap lol

I've gotten one before as well.  I just didn't bother mentioning it or reporting it because it was one time...out of how long?  So whatever.  If it becomes a persistent problem, I'm sure the guys at GB will fix it.

They don't fix.  They crush.  They will crush it. 

Haha.  I really don't get to use the word "crush" often enough.

Really?  I use "crush" and "squash" a lot.
But then again, I also use "nifty", "swell", "rad", and "bombastic" a lot too.  =  /

I think I only say "squash" I'm referring to the vegetable. 

My literature professor has a penchant for the word "bombast"--I find it really grating in an academic sense.  Haha.

This one English teacher at my school always says "titulate", usually when referring to sex. She's, like 70 years old, too.
