I'm not really sure what to make of this entry?? It is well written, but is not at all on topic (Spam). Perhaps its intricacies have just gone right over my head..?

This is definitely different. I almost didn't get it but the last line did it for me. Nicely done though I fear there may be others who don't entirely get it. You did leave me with a smile. I enjoy an entry that teaches me new words.

I did enjoy this fantastic tale, but I feel it's home is another place, somewhere in a land far far away from something as trite and feckless as spam.

But let's talk about this phrase:

"And like many people attempting to escape an abusive situation, she fled directly into a tyranny of even greater magnitude."

Is this irony, or cynicism, or sarcasm? I'm not exactly sure, but I absolutely love it.

This entry was quite comical in showing the absurdity of things written in spam mail to elicit money from the reader. It is no more fantastic, and lot more interesting, than many of the real spam! This absolutely could be believable as a real spam mail. Very clever, well written...Great job!

I agree with a previous comment:
And like many people attempting to escape an abusive situation, she fled directly into a tyranny of even greater magnitude.
This is brilliance!

However, I am lost on the story. I may be a little dense, but I didn't get it which I find frustrating enough that I keep reading it.

I thought the language was reminiscent of another era, Olde English almost and thus it was a little hard to connect with.
