I couldn’t agree more, summary of your comments is definitely creepy. Even more, it’s unsettling, disturbing and most of all disrespectful.
So, here's a semi friendly advice: a lot of ad agency execs (me included) use this and similar sites for talent scouting. Not only at forums and ad posts, but also in comments. They tell a lot about one’s aesthetic preferences, understanding, capability of lateral thinking, and least but not last about one’s character and ego. Seeping thru comments and analyzing them result in much clearer picture than any fake job interview and supped up portfolio. And your comments are, well… something special.
So back to my semi friendly advice: use the internet very carefully. A few missteps can cost you a career. Especially if you are a student, like yourself.
