I Saw You

Squatter


One misspelled word in my search, and there I was, stalled at your cybersquatting site. You're sitting out there in the Internet, lying in wait for noobs, foreigners and old people. I got out fast. My pop-up filter kept me from being deluged by your advertisements for dodgy MLM scams, 'herbal' 'Viagra' and time-shares in septic parts of the world.

I understand, you reptilian scammer, you and your ugly and inbred kids have to eat. But I am curious: What kind of creep thinks they're going to start off a business relationship with a customer when it's obvious that they've lied to them right off the bat, by posing as something they're not? Are we supposed to admire your nerve?
