I've done my homework...
« on: January 28, 2018, 06:01:38 am »
Here's some spam I received today that made me laugh .. I've removed links as I'm not interested in helping them out (you'll see why in a bit) :)

Hello there,

First, I wanted to say Great Job on your post -  <link to my business website removed>

I can tell that you did spend a lot of effort on creating this content.

I'm actually the main editor over at <Business name and link removed>

So your post was of particular interest to me as we've just recently released an epic blog post on Health Benefits of Mint Leaves.

While reading your article, I noticed you were linking to a post from www.peppermintos.com on the same topic as my post. Their post is also a great resource, though I would says mine is even more comprehensive and up to date. Plus, I've done my research thoroughly – lots of trusted sources in there.

Bottom line, I think a link to my article would make a great addition to your post.

If you agree, and are happy to add the link, I'd be glad to share your post on our social media channels.

This is my article: <link to an article about the health benefits of mint leaves removed>

Let me know if you like the idea?

Thanks,

<Persons name removed>

Editor at <Company name removed>

It was the "I've done my research thoroughly" bit that cracked me up :))

Trust me there's NO articles about mint leaves on my business site or peppermintos.com .. their "homework" obviously consists of a google search for the term "mint" (even where it's preceded by "Pepper", and totally ignoring context) ::)

I wonder if Clem got the same email (?)

Hey, thorough research into all things mint brings you here, right?  RIGHT?  Erm, OK, maybe not.  ::)
