Spammer or Joke? Either way...

As most of you know, we have a manual verification process to get posting access to TMS. Nothing too elaborate, just enough to verify someone is a MUD player or has an interest in MUDs.

Every now and then someone spends the 5 minutes it takes to browse the site enough to give a valid sounding fake response, but for the most part this keeps us spam free. Most spammers have automated tools that go directly to a "confirm" URL even though the email we send out doesn't ask anyone to do that, so that's a dead giveaway for 95% of them.

Anyway, I just got this back (exact quote):

I am sell adult drug like viagra after looking at site i think your users no use for my drug so you can delete

So, either he looked around the site and decided we (we being the male members of the site) are all rock hard studs who would never need Viagra, or, just drop everything before "would never need Viagra"

It sounds to me like he thinks we're all women, OR we're all totally hopeless and perpetually limp men.

Either way...

Or someone who flunked out of the first grade and never went back. What an hedious sentence structure.

I know I would be very sad if all you guy-folks were left limp. It would be like... flirting with lady-men.

Considering it is the internet unless I have personally met you I make no assumptions of your age or gender despite your claims or name.

But Newworlds, this is the Internet: Where men are men, women are men, and the children are FBI agents.

Actually, MU*s (particularly more role-playing-centered ones) seem to attract more female players than almost any other type of computer or video game I can think of, and an older crowd as well (though I'm not entirely sure about that lately). So funnily enough, the above hardly applies here.
