your honor, the suspect had the means and the opportunity, and maybe even a motive, but for the life of us we cannot figure out what the hell he was thinking.
some time ago, i started getting newsletters from gay.com. not spam! this is not a site that would spam. no, someone signed me up. didn’t pay it much attention and didn’t bother to unsubscribe, every once in awhile i’ll click a link in the newsletter — no problem.
well, today’s subject line about national HIV testing day (which is tomorrow incidedntally) caught my attention, and i ended up poking around a bit. started wondering who signed me up, and why. i seem to be a member, but of course i lack a login; i checked the email headers and it’s being sent to “kissmy @ (myoldurl).us”. now that doesn’t have a vicious ring to it, but it’s not a friendly practical joke, either.
now i gather from the lengthy, apologetic unsubscribe info at the bottom of the newsletter, that this is a fairly common prank among the repressed homophobic jerk idiot portion of the populace. and this makes me sad. must make being a site admin a rather nightmarish job, no doubt involving having to respond to all manner of abusive responses from inadvertent subscribers.
sometimes we lizards just don’t understand humans atall.
