My business partners and I would like to present you with an offer to purchase loper-os.org. We promise not to take up much of your time. Would you be interested in selling if the price was right?

No. Go Away.
Turns out, it was probably a script. Although it isn’t clear to me what purpose (other than address harvesting) it might serve. What happens if you actually agree to sell your site to the spammer? What exactly is the point, from the spamming scum’s point of view, of purchasing a “human” site to turn into a link farm? Presumably, your readers will make the mistake of loading the turd exactly once, after which they will curse your name for all eternity.
