"Someone has a crush on you."|
Whee. Crushlink just sent me an email this morning to my AOKP email address (the one that only my friends have, and has specifically avoided getting spam). Here's how this insidious little site works. You put in the email of someone who you have a crush on. That person gets an email saying someone has a crush on them. They can now go to the site, and guess the email address of anyone they think might have a crush on them. Crushlink then sends out email to all of those people, and says that person has a Crush on them. If you happen to guess correctly, then you've made a Crushlink. Congratulations. Now, you can try to figure out if you actually have a crush on each other, or if you were both blindly guessing who it is that has a crush on you, when it turns out you're both just random guesses of someone else...
Now, if you don't want to blindly guess, you can slowly get such useful hints as "The person's first name's first letter is somewhere between M and S." But, in order to get those hints, you need to sign up for other services, which you know are going to get you drawn into the web of spam. (There's an image.)
It's possible that someone out there actually has a crush on me. It's possible that person is reading this right now (I've been far less secretive about this site since the "worms" incident). If they are, please just email me. I hate playing games like this...Chances are pretty good that I find you attractive too. If, on the other hand, you were trying to guess who put your email address in, then please email me and tell me. I hate this "Maybe, maybe not" thing going on right now, and would just like to know for sure. And I don't want to send emails out to every female I know, promoting this service, because I don't like how the company operates.
Update:Yeah, it was someone guessing me when someone had sent a Crushlink to her. Stupid, stupid service...
