to the genius who answered my ad

You are a man. You have now responded to two ads I posted under men seeking women. Since the ads were quite different from one another, I don't think it's something about me. I can only assume that you are doing the same thing to a bunch of other guys, too.

So, as a public service, let me try to clarify something for you.

The "m" in "m4w" stands for "man." The "4" stands for "for." The "w" stands for "woman." Thus, "m4w" means "man for woman" or, in slightly less terse terminology, "man looking for woman."

Make sense? No? OK, I'll be even more explicit:

1. Anyone who posts under m4w is a man. This part, I am pretty sure you figured out.

2. Anyone who posts under m4w is looking for a woman. This part, I think you might not have understood.

3. If you are not a woman, he is not looking for you. I am almost certain you didn't get this part.

4. And he is definitely not looking for you to pay him for an extremely bizarre sex act, and by bizarre I do not mean mere anal sex. If he were, don't you think he might post an ad that said something like "I want a guy to pay me for bizarre sex"? Or at least "I get off on doing really weird shit with men in bed"? And not, say, "I want to meet a woman for a romantic date"?

In closing, let me note that I did not check the box that says it's "OK for others to contact you about other services, products or commercial interests." This means it is NOT OK for brilliant minds such as yourself to contact me about services, products or commercial interests unrelated to the original purpose of my ad. I might be going out on a limb here, but I suspect PAYING me for sex is a commercial interest. So knock it off. What you are sending is called spam, and in case you couldn't tell, it really pisses me off.
