'Joke' Mail

Written by Joe Bingham

I love email. I love to hear from friends, and I love to get new subscribers. Paypal is one of my favorite places to hear from as well. It's always nice to make some money for what I am doing.

I also love to readrepparttar ezines to which I have subscribed. I often learn a lot from them, and get many article ideas just by bouncing off of what others have said.

However, there's that certain once in a while when all of a sudden...


I subscribe to something like 12-15 ezines. Honestly speaking, that's not very many either. These are all ones that I usually read. Plus there are two others that won't go away. I've actually gone throughrepparttar 109700 unsubscribe process 3-4 times and yet they still come.

I'm also subscribed to a publisher's discussion list, about 8 article announcement lists, and am on about 15 other company mailing lists.

Then there's other publisher's I converse with regularly. Plus, I have to answer questions concerning my services, feedback from readers, process free ads from new subscribers, and I occasionally get letter from Mom and Dad.

So, let me tell you, there's times it can really pile up. Especially if I do something drastic like take a day off.

I'm not complaining, mind you, I do love my business and hearing from everyone involved. The only reason I'm bringing this up is to ask a simple question.

Besides all of these regular emails I get, I receive a few others as well. Many people call them 'spam' emails. I've come to think of them in a different term, however. I call them Jokes.

Look people, I get on average 60 emails a day. Most, say 45-50 of these are legitimate things such as that named above that I want to look at and respond to in many cases.

So, those of you out there that send me these 'joke' emails, I ask you...

Do you really think after dealing with all that other stuff that I'm even going to consider looking at an email coming from someone I don't know withrepparttar 109701 subject line of "Help! I'm Making Too Much Money!" or "Your $10,000 Commission is Here!"?

I'm not one to make a big deal about receiving unsolicited email. I do, however, have a personal vendetta against blatant stupidity!
