Marketeers' spam // at 09:00
When not snowed under by the sheer weight of spam and rubbish mail, its important to take time out to find those little amusements in the day to day junkmail. Here's one that came in today, personally addressed to a one-off email address that was on my site for a while, asking for a link exchange because clearly I have something to do with shonky weight-loss products.
Please use the following details for my link:
Title : weight loss for women
Please link The Title to this URL :
It takes more than just losing a few pounds to truly live a happier,
healthier and more fulfilled lifestyle. That's why the Slim Girl's Box
of Secrets comes with a unique set of benefits that you just won't find
Oh dear, a bit Too Much Capitalisation, and can you at least spell check your Descripcion.
Perhaps look at the format of your text and where you line-wrap.
I'm not sure I can get past the Slim Girl's Box, and for some reason I keep reading it as Slime Girl, not Slim Girl, so maybe the entire product line needs revision.
I hope you have a nice day and thank you for your time.
No problem, my bills in the mail.
Web Marketing Consultant
...and I refuse to make a cheap joke about a spammer with a surname that sounds like Rot In O.

Musings on a spam // at 09:45
Always such a tedious task, but I have to find the gems amongst the dross:
“I am MR. Gray Norman, an accountant”
Gray Norman, a gray name for a profession gray by reputation... how very appropriate.
“I am a straight forward person”
The wonders of the English language... given all the sexual innuendo in the spam, is he really meaning that he is a straight, forward person, or a straight-forward person?
Oh well, back to work...
