"Good Story. Too bad that..."

This is just something that makes me chuckle. Quite regularly, especially with the shorter stories I've posted, I get anonymous messages that say things like, "Nice story. Too bad that..." Insert disappointing aspect here... "Too bad there was no intercourse." "Too bad the girl wasn't older/younger." "Too bad it wasn't an older woman and a younger guy." Etc., etc.

I don't know why it strikes me as funny. I guess I don't quite get why readers make the effort to send a comment like that at all. I mean, the story is what it is. It's written and posted. It's the way I, or any author here saw that aspect of it. Is it really "too bad" that certain characters didn't fuck? I don't know. I suppose it would make more sense to say, "Nice story. I would have also liked it if..." But who said anything had to make sense, right?

Oh well...just another puzzlement. Too bad some readers... (lol)
