In any case, the frequency of the pop-ups didn't abate - if anything, it increased.
There were pretty much constantly at least one and often around five chat pop-up windows on the screen at a time.
Out of the first 23 letters that I opened, 13 (about 57%) of them, as quoted above, explicitly asserted that the writer had read "Michael's" profile and was interested in him based upon that profile, and three others (about 13%) implied it by writing such things as "I’m very interested in you [...] I believe the first sight , perhaps the first look can doom our fate", "you can't imagine how happy I am at the moment" and "I feel so happy to be here to coonect with you my dear".
I'll summarise the results of the fake profile first.
On 27 June 2014, I registered a fake profile, leaving all details unset other than name, age and profile description ("A Few Words About Yourself"), which I set (respectively) to "Michael Michaelson", 70, and "I'm just here to check whether this site is a scam. Notice that "Michael" explicitly requested only scammers to message him.
A sample of some of the first few messages "Michael" received, along with my commentary, if any, in grey, follows.
I did not take screenshots of any of these chat pop-ups, but you don't have to take them on faith - you can perform the same experiment that I did, and see for yourself that these are the sort of messages that you receive.
