For the record, PorcupineTree's message would have gotten my attention, amused me, and (if the profile was interesting to boot) gotten a reply. (It contains punctuation, humor and science trivia.) Then again, I am a science geek...

Very interesting. I'm also pretty un-gross-outable (great word!) but the mentioning of farts in a first message would not amuse me at all! Well like PorcupineTree said, that just goes to show that people respond and react differently, the recipient of the message seemed to take it pretty well
