The Irony of Revolutionaries. And Fanfiction.

Life’s kept me pretty busy lately.  It’s the end of the school year, which means paperwork, correcting, and of course more paperwork.  I’ve got my voice lessons each week, and last weekend and this weekend upcoming I have things to do with the studio.  Bard and I have been spending a lot of time together, which is wonderful, as always.  It’s all left little time for creative writing outside of this blog, and even that doesn’t always get the attention I’d like to give to it.  Sorry, blog.  Anyway, I have a forum over on Fanfiction.net dedicated to Dragon Age fanfiction, and recently a member messaged me to ask me to delete a post.

I went and logged in, and was surprised at the layout change.  But apparently in my time away from the site a lot of other things have changed.  There’s apparently a big issue with story deletions going on over on the site right now.  The issue isn’t one that’s been taken on by the moderators, but by a group of self-proclaimed revolutionaries who pride themselves on following the rules and making sure everyone else follows the rules OR ELSE.

Spam I Am for June 4th, 2012

So initially whenever I got spam I would get annoyed and delete it.  Until one day I was looking it over with Bard and he and I realized some of them were really funny.  So I’ve decided to start occasionally posting some humorous spam and my reaction to it.  Today’s offering:

“I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as noone else know such detailed about my problem. You are incredible!
Thanks!”

1.  Hey thanks for thinking I’m incredible!  That makes me all warm and fuzzy.

2. But I’m not your cousin.  Or am I?  I DON’T KNOW.

5. Whatever your problem is, that I know such detailed about, I hope it gets better.

Mostly, I think the bad grammar and the effort at sincerity is what makes it humorous to me.  I know I may be the only one who thinks it’s funny, but… well… 30 Days of Video Games is over and I have to amuse myself somehow, right?  No worries, this isn’t an everyday sort of thing.  Mostly a “I feel like updating my blog.  What spam can I analyze?”

Thank goodness E3 starts this week so I’ll have something gaming to think about and write about.
