More Hermeneutics - Russian Women SpamI have received this note a few times today. It was accompanied by this lovely picture.
Don't read - page down past the quotation.
Hello man my new friend!
I understand, that you do not know me and I do not know you, but
probably in the future all can change. All good always occurs in the
future and I ask a few patience from you to read my letter up to the
end. In the beginning I want to be presented you and to tell a little
about my life. My name is Elena and to me it will be very pleasant,
if you will name me so. Was born 32 years ago and all this time I live
in Russia, in Cheboksary . Now I work as the pediatrist in hospital and I very
much like my work as I every day communicate with many different
people. My life goes in regular intervals and every day is similar on
previous. I like my friends and love my family. Certainly the most
important i want to found love and my the husband to be the happiest
woman in the world. For all my life I could not meet the man to which
I could trust completely and with which I would like to connect my
life, but very much I want.
Several days ago I laid at home on a sofa and thought. Why I am
lonely? Why I cannot find my special the man? Probably I have made
nothing to be happy? Certainly I can be together with the man which I
not love, to give birth to the child and simply to be mum, but to not
be happy in the family, but I do not want it. I want to love the man
and simply be happy to be with him. Also I have thought. Why to not
try to get acquainted with the man from other country if I could not
find my special man here in Russia? Now we live in 21 century and I
know, that many people use the Internet and "Marriage agencies" to
get acquainted with suitable the man in any point globe. I do not want to
be lonely during my life or simply to sit and wait, when my love will
come to me. I want to do itself my life happy and have found such
marriage agency here in my city. I knew, that their help will be not
free-of-charge, but they have asked the big sum of money from me.
Nevertheless I have thought and have decided to not be greedy this
money, for the sake of my happiness and my love. Money - never can
give to me of it. Probably my destiny to be with the man from other
country? I do not know, but I want to try to know.
They gave to me yours E-mail and have told, that you also are
interested to find the woman for a life. I think, that now you can
understand, how my letter has come to you, could learn a little about
my life and about me, but I do not know your desires and I ask to
think. We can try to build serious relations or probably simply to be
friends. If you do not have desire simply speak to me and I can
understand. Nevertheless if I am interesting to you it would be very
pleasant for me to learn also a little more about you and to receive
your photos. I understand in computers not much, but I hope, that you
also can receive my photos in this letter. Certainly appearance not
the most important in the person both his private world and soul are
of great value, but nevertheless it is more pleasant to receive the
letter from the person and to see, how he looks. All this, that I
wanted to tell to you and now I shall wait only your answer. Excuse,
if I something have offended you in my letter or something has told
not correctly, but understand, that I try it for the first time and I
worry a little. Even if serious relations are not interesting to you
or I am not pleasant, simply let to me know. Ok?

Tired of loneliness Elena
Fact One: The To: field on my mail client never showed my address - always someone else's. How dumb can they be? This is easily fixed. So they put NO attention into this one thing.
I think they have put a lot of brilliant attention into the text, working hard to make it seem someone is struggling to write in English using a dictionary.
I especially like
Now I work as the pediatrist in hospital
Lovely choice of non-word.
Probably I have made nothing to be happy?
I cannot recall from what Russian I once knew whether this make/do confusion should occur there as it naturally does in German.
And of course the final "Tired of loneliness" is quite sweet.
Another problem is that each individual message has a different reply-to address.
I imagine these people may get a lot better at this over time. I wonder how many hits they get.
