Wenever there's new content, I'll let you know in a fun and entertaining manner :) My mom's on this list, so trust me, I won't be spammy.
Title: New e-mail
Hey all! This is my new e-mail account – my last account was clogged with spam… that’s what I get for using Hotmail since grade six :S
Anyways, I hope you’re well! Shoot me an e-mail and let me know what you’re up to.
1. I was hoping to be more trustworthy by revealing a legitimate reason for sending via an e-mail the person’s never seen before;
2. The strategically placed emoticon makes me seem human; and,
3. The “- D” makes the person think, “crap… I know lots of names that start with D…”
It was extremely hard to not descend into “I just had a quadruple heart bypass and I spent my life savings on the cute kittens I saved from the mean alligators – so please help me”. I think I might be better at grammar and come up with a more believable story, but I won’t steal as much money or sell as many sexual enhancement drugs as the professional spammers out there.
Conclusion: Don’t judge a spammer until you’ve typed awhile on his keyboard (modern take on the mile-in-shoe proverb).
