Problem is -- check out that email address. apathyindustries.com didn't EXIST in 2001, which is when Crushlink says they got this address. Second of all, that domain name has one email address in it, which hasn't been given to the public, and misleading_angel ain't it. So, watch yourselves, oh nerds and geeks of the internet -- Crushlink wants to make money off your inability to find a significant other. They tease
you with the prospect of true love, then trick you into jumping through their spammy hoops.
I've gotten lots of those. As near as I can tell its just a scam to get you to give out email addresses of people you know. (ie, ones that are more likely to be valid addresses)

If spam has even the tiniest twinge of upbeatness about it (and hey I'm not sayin it does) it would be how it evolves to hoodwink us into thinking it's not spam. It asks us to play the detective every day at the inbox. As the spammy hoops become more enticing we must needs become more discerning.But mostly of course, it's just a big waste of time. Telemarketers---- now there's a group you can use for improvisational humor, unlike spammers, every time they make a pitch you've grabbed onto their ear and can stuff it full of culture jam!
