Silly

Please Stop Spamming Me

Dear Relocation.com and WONGDOODY Communications,

As you mentioned in your email, I am indeed a contributor to Agent Genius.  However, I do not wish to advertise on, or buy leads from, Relocation.com or its affiliate, Homegain.  Please remove me from all of your email lists; I do not wish to receive any further press releases.

While I appreciate the offer, I also do not require a headshot of Mr. Denker, although I wish him well in his new job.

I am puzzled by one thing, however: why is an advertising company – a company who helps others get the word out about their brand and their business – sending out mass email from a Yahoo account and not from their own domain?

Odd.

Sincerely,

Kelley

    Because no webmaster is going to flat out spambox Yahoo mail.

    go girl – that was the best example I have seen this year on how to waste money and goodwill. The genius that came up with that plan needs to rethink or rather first-think the repercussions of stupidity – see https://www.darwinawards.com/

    Hey answer-sock: it was a rhetorical question. 🙂

    John – I think you were copied on the same email to me.

    Benn – I looked at the wongdoody site. Turns out, it was founded by two people, last names ‘wong’ and ‘doody’. Must’ve been a rough childhood.

    On an unrelated note, I am – at this very moment that I am typing – being spammed by a lender through my Plugoo IM widget.
