I get email.
So this gem just popped into my inbox.
I was browsing the web when i saw your site freethoughtblogs.com, and when i look at it, Enjoyed the content, would you mind if I offer you to have a link exchange site PR 3 (reciprocal link exchange – Page PR-2) with my site, here is our site http://www.mypsychicadvice.
If your interested make this link live and you can email us back with your site details, looking forward to grant my request. You can put link it anywhere close to homepage.
First off, what kind of dick ends his PR pitch with “Thanks,”? No name? But I digress. So this guy, which I will refer to as Spambot, who is certainly a real person stumbled across FtB and “Enjoyed the Content”. Spambot is clearly not the brightest mass emailing marketing algorithm in the world.
Spambot then implores me to first link to his site and contact him with my site details so (in theory) I can get massive amounts of money. But Spambot works for a Woo peddling company that, among other fake products, can predict the future. So Spambot must have known that I would read his email, be tired enough to mock it, and dickish enough to remove all the hyperlinks so that it would make money for Spambot’s masters back at “My Psychic Advice.”
Lastly, Spambot’s control of the English language (i.e. worse than mine) might be the reason he was able so enjoy FtB and its Woo friendly atmosphere.
So I looked into the website (no missions today), which looks a lot like a pyramid scheme (if the pyramid was buried to its apex in a pile of dumb and fail). The site, allows people to sign up as “Psychic Experts” and sell their stupid over the net for a price via live chat. Allowing the Indian entrepreneur and in no way an employee of the Cambay Spa and Resort to hire a bunch of independent consultants (read: untalented hacks) and take a cut from the top. Smart person is at least smart because under the tons of false reviews appears be to user base eager to have some random asshole type to them. So, not wanting to disappoint, I became one of those random assholes.
