Two Strikes--Local Bloggers and Spam
Today marks a special occasion. It's the second time that a local blogger has sent me an actual SPAM email.
(Just to clarify--we're talking about two bloggers, each doing it one time.)
Here's the thing. I love email. I'm crazy about email. I giggle inside everytime I get an email. That's why SPAM sucks. It's like playing Spin the Bottle with all the cute boys and having your spin end up pointing to the card table in the corner where the punch and cookies are. You get your hopes up and all you get is junk.
Spam from local bloggers is the worst. Because they are people I know, either online or in person or both.
Folks, I make every effort to read all the blogs on my blogroll. I try to hit each blog on my blogroll at least once every other day. Really.
There is NO need to send me an email to visit your blog.
And furthermore, should you decide to send a bunch of us an email at the same time, could you maybe mask my email address?
