Exploring Dora

I am so flattered. Or I was.

I received an email with the title Intrested in You. (I can ignore the spelling mistakes, sort of.)

Intrested in you,My name is Miss Dora,i saw your profile today at ( and became intrested in you,i will also like to know you the more,and i want you to send an email to my email address so i can give you my picture for you to know whom i am.Here is my email address (dora*******@*****.com) i believe we can move from here.I am waiting for your mail to my email address above.Miss Dora(Remeber the distance or colour does not matter but love matters alot in life
Yours Love Miss Dora

Love does matter a lot in life, but aren't we jumping the gun a little?

The Miss in Miss Dora had me thinking maybe this was a guy, my preferred romantic interest gender. Maybe he had read my post on the Transexpistols and thought I could handle a transexual. That could be an explanation for this love note.

Something about the email was a little off, other than the fact someone was seeking 'love' based on a comment I left on another blog site. Other than that!

I needed help to word my flattered refusal. I called in Aileen.

Aileen, the super investigator, Googled Miss Dora and I went back to the email. We both came up with the same result. Sorta.

Aileen found that Miss Dora is a spammer. She's known for it.

I, upon reexamining the email header, To:, decided that Dora is slut.

I think Miss Dora is one of those Russian scam artists. You know, the kind that get loney guys to send them money for access to the internet, phone, and their sick grandma. I can't believe she messed up your gender. That seems like an seriously amateurish misstep.

Boy, I didn't get a spam from Miss Dora, and I'm an admitted bisexual!

Lucky you!

Michele: I would not wish Dora on you. You deserve better.

Julie: I believe the amateur stature is what I sensed "was off" in the email. Otherwise I would have been bamboozled. ;)

My0p: Slutty spammers UNITE and learn to use spell check.
