Actually, I replied to this one to tell them not to send me any more of their spam crap. They sent me the following reply:
“fuck off, you lowlife prick! cry me a river :.. (“
Bless their hearts.
While we’re on the subject of weird internet shit, we’d been doing rather well over at Mix.DJ, with nearly 20,000 listens for one podcast. Then one day a few weeks ago, a guy posted a mix with our colour scheme for his artwork, and called it “Chill Resonance”. It had Enigma in the track-listing. In a possibly connected turn of events, our listener numbers then fell through floor for our next mix. Still, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Which is probably why the same guy put up his new drum n’ bass mix immediately after ours last week, denting our numbers again. This same guy, incidentally, is a site moderator, uploader and staff member for, erm, Mix.DJ.
Ah, the sweet smell of success… Like we give a shit.

Tally ho, and watch out for the canapes.
