People Are Strange…When You’re a Stranger.

I dunno, I just thought that title seemed appropriate.

What is with this tendency for blinks on email lists to randomly add people they don’t really know at all to their msn messenger lists? Are they that loneley that they want to get to know new people, and this is the only way they know how?

I’m a little freaked this morning. Wanna know why? I’m on an email list with my email account that is not my messenger address. Still, one of the list members found my messenger address, I don’t know how, and added it to his list. Um, why? I don’t know him from a hole in the ground.

There’s a reason I join email lists with an account that isn’t my messenger address. At one time, that was the account I used for lists. Sometimes, several people who I don’t know at all, aside from answering some question about screen-readers or Microsoft Word, would all add me. Some of them would repeatedly demand voice chats. Some of them had nothing to say, but had to say it often. Some of them just turned into weirdos and pervs. All of them got hoofed!

I’m no longer as freaked as I was. I figured out that he’s one of the guys who added me when I was using my msn address on that old list, and I guess he’s changed accounts. But he’s one of the ones that had nothing to say and said it often. So at least he wasn’t a creep. But I still never understood why he added me in the first place!

Man people are weird.

  1. Came across this while on a Blogger Importer symbol killing spree. I had completely forgotten you’d written it. But as I was refreshing my memory I realized that it’s still relevant, just now they do it on Twitter. At least on Twitter one of the aims is to connect with new people, but some of them are seriously just like oh, it looks as though you may be blind, I’ll follow you. Hey, why aren’t you following me back, asshole!? We’re all in this together!

    the more things change…
