As is often the case, I put up with a lot of B.S. until I’m having a bad day and I get pushed over the edge.
People hate spam – a lot. I’m no different. I’ve got an excellent spam filter, but I still have to wade through the Subject: and From: fields to ensure legitimate email is not being caught. This wastes my time. Now, most spammers are smart and don’t give out a return email address. Some are dumb and actually think I would be legitimately interested in whatever it is they’re selling, just because they saw my email address somewhere. Did they ask permission before sending their garbage? No. See, I said they were dumb.
Some spammers are outright liars. Surprise! They say the only reason they’re sending you this message is because you subscribed to their services. Yes, they’re really that stupid that they think I’d buy that load of crap.
Most people who are spammers, but don’t want to look like they’re spammers, put a link that allows you to unsubscribe from their “services”. Right. They want me to do work to get them to stop sending me stuff I didn’t want in the first place. Ain’t gonna happen. Besides, spammers who harvest email addresses use these “unsubscribe” links to verify that there is a working email address out there and they sell that verified address to other spammers. So I never “unsubscribe”.
Rather than trying to fight back, I’ve decided to respect those folks’ desire to flog their products and have come to the realization that they’re obviously interested in hearing from others who may wish to sell to them. If they’re willing to send spam, then surely they want to receive it. To help you nasty spammers contact them, I’m posting their email addresses here. I’m also going to charge them for evaluating their messages to the tune of USD $5000 per message. I’m not offering to give them anything in return, just to examine their message and help direct traffic to them. No, I don’t keep your cruddy spam around. I read it, extract your email address, post it here, and delete your message. If you don’t like that, don’t send me spam.
And who was it that pushed me over the edge? Why, it’s none other than Sheila J. Mitchell, V. P. Research at SoftMatch.com, a division of Software Matchmakers Inc. Now, isn’t that company name just too cute? “Matchmakers”. I’m all teary-eyed. They call themselves “Independent Event Producers”. Good for them. I call them spammers, but only because I didn’t sign up to be pestered by them.
I’m sure she’d love to promote all your events and would be more than willing to spam your potential customers. As a legitimate business, that’s exactly what you want, right – to annoy potential customers? Well Sheila is there for you. You can contact her at Sheila@SoftMatch.com.
Oh, and Sheila, if you want me to remove your email address, then I’m more than willing to perform this service for you once you pay my fee for evaluating your
spam unsolicited commercial email.
Note: Any correspondence to me regarding this list may be made public at my discretion and will be subject to a processing fee of USD $5000 per message. Contact me wisely.
Customers who no longer wish to have their address posted here may have it removed after paying the USD $5000 fee for evaluating their unsolicited commercial email. When contacting me, don’t use the same email address, or even the same domain that you spammed me with because I’m blocking it.
See the sidebar to contact me for only USD $5000 per message.
