I get a lot of spam, as I am certain anyone stumbling across this post does, as well. I usually identify, select, and delete without much thought. However, I often receive spam from our Fisticuff Design web site and, I have to admit, I find it pretty amusing receiving emails attempting to sell us on web development services.
I mean, I receive a lot of emails. Some from potential or existing clients. Some from job seekers. It is one thing when freelancers contact looking to be an additional resource (it is always good to have reliable assets available in a pinch), but it’s a whole different scenario if you are trying to sell a web developer a new web site. It seems to me it is much like trying to sell TG Lee Dairy a gallon of milk.
Now I realize that it is entirely unlikely that the “person” sending the message even exists or actually visited our web site. I am sure it is originating from a web crawler / bot / whatever that is sending this to as many email addresses as it can before the powers that be shut it down. For me, though, it does not really diminish the comedic value.
Well, I am simple folk and I suppose I am easily amused.
