Ask the Stargazer: WTF Edition

Over the last few weeks I got a few really tricky questions that will force me to do some serious research in order to answer them. And I got one particular question that made me think WTF was going on here. But see for yourself (I changed the name of the sender):

Ask The Stargazer! Hello,
I’m Mr. Joe Sixpack And Would like to know if you sell Game Table and
what types of the Game Table  do you offer for sale..Also what types
of payment do you accept?Thank you and reply ASAP.
Best regards,

Joe Sixpack

Is this some weird kind of spam? Or is someone confusing the Open Game Table which I contributed to with an actual physical table? I actually answered that question and told Mr. Sixpack that I don’t sell anything. I haven’t heard from him since…

  1. That looks like the sort of spam that attempts to commit credit card fraud by making online purchases with stolen credit card numbers. Oh, and put me down for three Game Tables. Do I have my choice of surface materials? 🙂
