The Latest From the Spambucket, or How I Lost Out on $1000

Keep cool with Spam!

Just received this in my inbasket. Subject line is “I will pay $1000 for website right now, payable today.”

Wow. The John Denver bit from earlier must have gotten you at an emotional point in your life. We’ve been offered money to stop writing but never for the whole website. Sweet.

Anyway, I read on:


We are looking to potentially immediately buy your website. It must meet the following criteria:

Minimum Google PR: 3

Be in one of the following categories:
– Canadian focus
– finance
– cars
– telecommunications
– travel

“Canadian focus?” I realize we just opened up contests to Canada again, but does that realize qualify as focus? And…can anybody who reads this site honestly say that we focus on anything? I guess we don’t qualify. Crap.

Anyway, just thought I’d share.
