I’ve written about this before some time back, it’s happening less frequently I have to admit..but it still happens.
Remember “Yue May Not Mail Me Anymore”, well another occurence happened today. Even worse they had my real e-mail address as I have dealt with the agency before.
The agency incidentally who likes to poach jobs from other people by undercutting, then getting inexperienced staff to do the work – professionalism? Appropriate? I’ll leave that up to you.
Anyway I’ve been to some events by this company, and they were decent..unfortunately their standards seem to have declined and whoever they have approaching bloggers now is a complete fucking tool.
Subject: Urgent. Please Get Back to me
I’m from RetardedAgency and we will be having an event soon. Could you please help us feature this event on your Blog. Hope it isn’t too much hassle. Would really appreciate it. Please contact Dumb Fuck (03) 2xx3 2xx7 for further information. Or you can just reply my email. 🙂 Thanks a blast. Hope you response asap.
Etc etc standard press release about the event.
The funny thing? I tried to reply to her to tell her what a dimwit she was….as it was so urgent, and it BOUNCED – can you beat that!

Anyway back to the original mail, do you notice the lack of name, lack of introduction, lack of personalisation?
Does it smell like spam to you? Sure does to me.
Can you miss the retarded English?
Thanks a blast. Hope you response asap.
Darling that should be thanks a bunch and hope you respond ASAP.
And the tone of the e-mail, do I look like a push web site for your shitty press releases? There’s this thing called an ADVERTORIAL ok, if you want your shitty event on my site you can PAY like everyone else.
Or if it’s interesting, I’ll write about it anyway for free.
If not you can fuck off to http://www.prweb.com and publish your shit there.
