Don't bother them and they don't bother me.

There's just something about that.  Leave aside the confusing/misleading syntax; that is not relevant to my point, which is that there's something vaguely poignant about it: that first part--"don't suffer on alone"--certainly seems to get an authentic, important human preoccupation--the desire for real human connection.  But...then the writer is only able to think of solutions to this problem in the most crass, porn-y way imaginable.  Sure, there's nothing intentional here; it was really just written by someone with a very shaky grasp of the English language.  But it inadvertently gets at something about contemporary society in spite of that.
