Umm…Not For Sale?

I received an odd email yesterday on the webmaster account for Hyperborea.org:

My name is [removed] and i will like to purchase one of your product in your company. I need to order a Tread Mill and i wanted to know the price for one then i will be able to know the number i can order. You can also email me back with your website for me to choose from the one that suite my requirement. I will be hoping to hear from you soon.

It took me a second to realize it wasn’t just ordinary nonsense spam, but probably triggered by a search matching the writeup on the Cosmic Treadmill, the Flash’s time travel (and dimension travel) device!

Sorry, I don’t have one of those for sale…

    That goes to show how little people read or pay attention to things–why would a website about a comic book character be selling treadmills? I would never even assume that.

    *cough* yeah, people not paying attention….like not clicking on a White Lantern Barry pick to get a close up view. *cough* Let’s move on.

    Anyhoo…that was funny.

    Should you ever do get one you can sell, please make sure the credit card name does not end in Thawne or Zolomon. We don’t need no more trouble. 🙂

    @DocLathropBrown: Oh, yeah, one of my oldest blog posts was a rant on people not reading before they fire off complaints or support questions. I work — well, worked, since yesterday was my last day (my new job starts on Monday) — at an ISP with a similar name to several other ISPs and some network hardware, and we kept getting tech support requests for the other ones. Crazier was the student club in college that had the same name as a book-of-the-month club. We had a website. They didn’t. Guess who got the complaints?

    @kyer: I’ll keep that in mind! 😀
