Commenting on Comments

I'm finally looking at comments that were left for me ages ago. For the most part, I feel bad that I didn't respond when they were left because all comments are valuable and readers don't need to leave them. But I did delete one from Scary Mary the other night, mainly because it made my head hurt to decipher, but also because Scary Mary is promoted as YA and I want it to be pre-teen and teen friendly, I didn't think it prudent to leave the profanity-laced comment on there. But I make no such claims here (or on UB), so here's the comment in all its head scratching glory:

Isn't it great? I love the fact that the comment is directed to Mary. I wish I were clever enough to respond as Mary, but I'm leery of doing that because it's a slippery slope to insanity. I wonder if the reader came back the next week to see if Mary scared him this time? I didn't get anymore comments of this colorful nature so sadly I don't know. I wonder how this reader stumbled onto my site?
