how my software forum became a shrine to Angelina Jolie

On May 21 1999 I created a public forum for my visual music software Bomb. On October 15 2002 one VESNA BOGOSAVLJEVIC replied to a question about a Linux sound API with the following non sequitur:
Years have gone by, the Bomb software has become history, and postings about it in the forum slowled to a trickle.

Presumably via google this celebrity plea has over the same years attracted others, and this branch of the forum has taken on a life of its own where lonely men for far-away places pledge their love for Ms Jolie in broken English. Like today's:

Hello Angelina Jolie, many kiss for You.

I am student of chemical technology in the University of Quindio, Colombia, and I am needy your collaboration voluntary economic.

I have a great many hope in You.

Please help me...

Good bye,

LUIS GERMAN VILLA CUASTUMAL Armenia, Quindio, Colombia.

There are a bunch, including angry replies from those who think "AJ" would not care to read such things. Here was one from a teen fan looking for acting tips:
Hey.... i really do not think this message is actually going to get to Angelina! i have tried many times b4..Anyways i just wanted some contact with her... like if she could write me back. My ambition in life is to be an actress, i am 18 yrs old and i know that this is what i want to do. I watch angelina and it makes me want to be an actress more, i wish i couls get some help form her,i feel like she is my distant sister, we have so much in common. i love the fact that she is not like the rest of the celebrities. she has her own life, and she is gonna live it the way she wants to. I want to be like that, i also love knifes i collect them as well. i am great fan of hers, i have tattoos as well. And i really dont give a shit abt any other celebrity, i just love her attitude, and ppl may say that that she is crazy, but i think the world needs more like her... well angelina if u get this, i hope u could help me, i want to be an actress, but not just any actress! i want to be like u, and if u could write back and give me some ideas on how to do that, that would be great.. thnx CK
