The huddled masses are getting desperate!

I received the following e-mail yesterday:


Hi Everyone,
Since 'Metafilter' aint accepting new users I thought I'd
write to a bunch of you. Someone please post my comments
for me?

Heres my take on MaryRomantic (Mary Terry):
Read the part about the gift and the 'snag-points'
Also think about the fact that she's asking for something
unattainable in men (IE no one will ever fit her profile). And the fact that she only meets them
in public and that she ultimately has the full power to say, "Sorry! I don't think YOU are 'him', Goodbye" !
That is after She has obtained the GIFT.
Look at this statement:
[. No matter what kind of other strange message I may hear on your answering machine, even if it sounds as though you won't be around until way past our appointed date time, I'll know that that kind of message doesn't pertain to me, ]
This makes ME believe as though ALOT of men have gotten thru to her answering machine and those are the strange messages.

The fact that she's jobless and unmarried leads me to the following:

Mary is a grifter! In the same fashion as Robert Blakes wife was.
She has men meet her somewhere, probably where her real boyfriend
is hiding behind a bush, gets her 'gift' and chats with him for a few minutes and since she has the authority in the say so of the meeting
she tells him she needs to think about him and she'll contact HIM!
She never does and goes on to the next sucker thats lined up in a few minutes somewhere else.
The men are too ashamed that they fell for this that they don't dare discuss it with friends or go to the cops.
If the gift is $100.00, she could make a nice income off of this grifting!

Just my observations.

PS Ed? I thought the same thing about LRonHubbard and her site. LOL

And she has a fictional daughter suffering from terminal cancer.

It all makes perfect sense.

Um. The point of posting this was to comment on the fact the e-mail was sent, not what was sent.

Then why did you post the ENTIRE email? jeesh. Sorry, but that was a Pointless Post of Staggering Vanity.

I don't dig the whole, "Please post this for me because I don't have rights yet!" deal. I just don't. If I'm not mistaken, one can post comments after signing up, no? And there's a 3-comment wait on links? I think there are reasons for that.

They say compassion is a virtue, but I don't have the time.

I posted the whole thing for impact. In retrospect, I wish I had posted it one level down. I just thought it was interesting that someone would go to this length.

hijinx: no one has been able to sign up for weeks.

Paris: Yep, I'm aware of that too. If it's a timely thing, there is a good chance someone else will post it without being prodded to do so. If it's not timely, it can be placed on the burner. And, of course, one can reevaluate if it was really worth posting or not.
