I hate spam as much as, well, everybody, but occasionally it's funny. Like this particular message.

I like this spam because:

A) I did not have a membership at friendfinder. I created one to look up this account but I don't think I can search for specific usernames, which makes the email even more of a waste.

B) I checked her Yahoo account, and it was created ten days ago. It will be gone in less than that much time.

C) She's visiting "my area." Really. Very specific.

D) There's no such thing as night life in "my area."
