best bogus sign-up ever

I have a gmail address, that I don't use very often, but I have to check in over there all the time because, for whatever reason, people with my name all over the world keep signing up for crap using my gmail address. They buy stuff and give the shop my address, type of thing. I've even gotten confirms/questions regarding wedding plans and funeral arrangements. This isn't someone trying to mess with me -- these are errors, probably people leaving out an initial or a number or something. For a while I was getting baby pictures.

Anyway. Today I got a notification that I had signed up for something, which is not uncommon, and I started to do my usual reply: I didn't sign up for this. Please take me off your list. Etc. Then I thought, what the heck is "lesbotronic" anyway?


Best. Bogus. Sign-up. Ever.

On the one hand, I _definitely_ don't want someone else's profile on lesbotronic associated with me. That would be confusing and bad in so many ways. On the other hand, it is ever so slightly tempting to sign myself up over there now (hey, just to make sure no one does this again, amirite?), because, Fun!

Not entirely honest (I don't really have the time, energy or interest in finding other partners at this time), either. Still. Tempting.
