Be glad most marketing isn’t done by spammers. I mean, so much marketing is strained or downright idiotic, but not to the level of spam.

I received an e‑mail message yesterday from someone named ‘Hemorrhoids.’ That’s a problem right there. Hardly inviting. It got a magnitude worse with the subject line, which read, “Is your hemorrhoid hanging out?” Christ on a cracker, there’s one message I deleted unopened, and faster than you can imagine.

And still, some dingbats must be buying. If no one bought from these shills, they wouldn’t spend money sending these messages. But they do because someone does. It boggles my mind.

I doubt any of you are among these dingbats or I’d tell you to cut it out.
