I'm looking for a real woman who knows how to fulfill my needs, both in the bedroom and in the world.
I promise I'm worth it and you've never been with anyone quite like me before.
Whether you know it or not, odds are you've encountered one. "The majority of the matches are often bots," says Satnam Narang, Symantec’s senior response manager. Keeping the automated personalities at bay has become a central challenge for software developers.
"It's really difficult to find them," says Ben Trenda, Are You Human's CEO.When he saw an ad for the dating site Ashley Madison, which boasted 36 million members and the tagline, "Life is short, have an affair," he decided to check it out. Everyday, he received more of these come-ons — until he finally said, "Fuck it." "I'm like, ' Hey, all these women want to talk with me,'" he recalls. As anyone who's dated online knows, this is not entirely unusual. "I just figured they're not interested anymore," Russell says."' Let me go ahead and put in my credit card information.'"

For example, you might sign up for my newsletter, and I’ll send it to you once a week.You don’t provide your email address to view what’s on the site. I’m sure the porn industry has similar products – newsletters, subscription sites, discussion forums – requiring an email address to gain access.

Unfortunately, email that people don’t want runs the risk of being marked as spam.
