[-empyre-] Question

I think that what has been posted so far, if happened upon on the internet
might appear to be spam at first, but I wonder about the curiosity of people
to google "lostempyre" when they see it... I would.
The idea of the narrative of a person looking for an ex could be found by
stumbling upon a post, and using a search engine to find out more about it
is a kind of graffiti. What kind of content would you ever get out of
reading your spam, anyway???
