How ironic is your email, "perfectible" h. k. kirk?! I haven't had any results using Craig's List because of, well, whores like you. Internet-advertising tampon-barrels. So Kirk, is bottom feeding giving you results? I hope you choke on porcelain shards.

Dear Desires Oc Oc-
I really want to join whatever link it is you sent me that I didn't visit, but first I need to know you are legit. Can you send me documentation that you really used this "program"? Further more, who is the "guy"? Is he Kyosaki, because if so, sign me up right now. I like to work for my money, but as a lazy asshole, I'd rather triple my $$ by clicking some junk.

Awesome! Thanks for joining the growing list of responders to my post with nothing tangibly valuable to me! You suck goat anus, you colossal waste of time!
I lost the email here, but kept the response:

John Michael James
I just got this exact message from another man who's name implies trustworthy European descent. I can't believe how much response I'm getting to my posted! What are the details that You have for i?
His Respose, oddly from a new email address:
From: Williams Terry (email@example.com)
Thanks so much for your quick response..i would like you to clean my house and get $500 weekly and you will be cleaning 3 times in a Week and the cleaning materials will be provided for you for the cleaning of the house..And i will like to pay you by check and i will want you to send me your Full Names,Physical Address and your cell number so that the check can be mailed out to you today and you will get it tomorrow.
I will be waiting to read back from you with your info. so that the check can be send out to you.
No thanking me "Williams Terry" nee John Mackayson (a.k.a. "John Michael James"). I should be thanking you. Here I am seeking a cleaning job on the internet that will cover my bills and you offer me this hot $500/wk. jazz. I only hope that it's one hour per clean, so that at 3 times a week I'm getting roughly $167/hr. That's pretty average for me, but I do deign to your petty cleaning. Do you live in a cave?
