subject modern design


I'd appreciate if you can give me some feedback on our site: www.what-a-load-of-crap-these-spam-emails-are.com

I realize that you are home decor-modern design connoisseur :) I'd like to hear your opinion/feedback on our products. Also, it'd be swell if you can place our barcelona chair link on your blog.

Thank you,

subject Re: modern design


Thanks for your email. I have got some feedback for you, which I hope you'll take it on. Clearly, given that my blog has absolutely nothing to do with design in any sense of the word, and that the only purpose your visit to my blog served was to get an email address (I wasn't aware that personal rants about people who pick their nose on the London Underground were synonymous with being a "home decor design connoisseur", but thanks for the heads up), I will not be doing any of the following:

a) visiting your site
b) giving any feedback on it
c) placing a link to any sort of chair, sofa, stool (foot, or otherwise) on my blog
d) forming a very good opinion of your website, your brand, your shop, your products (whatever they may be), or anything else associated with you and your shameless, unsubtle advertising techniques.

You have, however, supplied me with a subject I can post about tomorrow; that is, how annoying these kind of spam, "I'm trying to be clever by pretending I've picked you out specially" bulk emails are.

Have a "swell" day.


(Nothing to do with design)


'Nuff said.

Perhaps the placement of the resulting product of nose-picking constitutes 'interior design?'

Or perhaps, as you surmise, they're just cretinous spammers.

Not sure about 'swell' being the most irritating word though. It's certainly frustrating but for me would come behind the use of the phrase 'it is right' by politicians.

Nice rant.

Methinks Susan may have chucked herself under a tube after that momentous rant. Nice work.

Hannah said...

Urgh. It's just SO unsubtle. Why do they think it'll work??!

Tabby said...

Love it. I hope she cried!!

Paula said...

i hate this spam crap. probably the reason why i don't have my email address on my blog. :)

Did you actually send that reply??

Dungeekin - I don't know, Swell's up there with me along with 'awesome'. and I'd take the "cretinous spammers" option.

Ems - I hope she chooses life without spam, rather than death because of it. What a plum Susan clearly is.

Hannah - Clearly the marketing team has some clever, clever little scamps in it.

Tabby - YEAAAAH, I hope she cried too. Wailed. Howled. Broke down and stamped her feet. HA! That'll teach her!

Paula - But it's kind of worth the entertainment value just to have a random email. I get some weird stuff through. maybe I'll put another weird one up later.

rosie - I did indeed. Unfortunately I haven't yet received a reply.

You're nice.

Holy shyte! I JUST got one of those myself! They love my blog and then a URL for used cars or some such rubbish. Oh sure, flatter me and then I’ll whore your business for you. It's an epidemic.

Please Don't Eat With Your Mouth Open said...

chris - people who use the word 'swell' don't deserve nice

unbearable - see! they're everywhere, these clever little marketing bods. arrrrrrrghhhhh!
