For some reason I have been getting more random Friendster messages than usual, always from men (boys), usually from southeast Asia. Should I put something in my profile like “I am interested in making new friends, but if you write to me, at least say something that indicates we have a common interest”? Probably not — it’s clear such people aren’t concerned with the content of the profiles anyway:

Hmm, a holiday in Turkey does sound nice, but I’ll save the 25-year-old military officer for Terry.
