The Will Oremus article is almost correct. I know the phrase "interested in" part is more interpreted as "interested in doing business with" or "interested in becoming a friend with". It is more a lack of language comprehension and to some extent cultural difference; while most people know what "Interested in" means as a phrase, it is the culture that defines it in the context not the language.
