I'm really glad that they have "learned [my] paper", but the MS word format requirement just is too onerous for me. As for "we wish to become your friends if necessary", that sounds a bit ominous. Maybe it isn't necessary.

They forgot to mention how much money you will owe them once they publish your paper.

"we wish to become your friends if necessary"!!!

Also, have you googled "recursion" lately. You might enjoy the results.

I received a similar email from this bogus journal, but from "Clare".

The Journal of Computer Science, Technology and Application is a scam.
