When Something Is Free...

...you use way too much of it, never having to do any cost-benefit analysis.

Case in point, some spam I got today at my blog.  All bloggers are likely bombarded with request to "guest post", which in reality is a thinly veiled request to post a long advertorial masquerading as a blog post.  And of course, since the down of Google's ranking methodology, I get a lot of link request spam.  Here is the funniest I have gotten in a while

Inquiry About A Bounty Hunting Resource

I happened upon your collection of Internet links related to bounty hunting here  coyoteblog.com/coyote_blog/2005/10/more_on_califor.html and thought you might be interested in another authoritative online resource to add to those.

Are you the correct person to contact for having resources added as an additional link on this page? If not, could you please direct me to the right individual?

Thanks for your time. I hope to hear from you soon!

LOL.  I responded:

All bounty hunters attempting to do business here are thrown into the Sarlacc

    Or you can always offer to accept payment in ponies. That seems to be the trend.

    LOL! Another popehat reader. Warren, if you haven't seen it: http://www.popehat.com/2012/10/05/somewhere-away-from-the-ponies/

  3. Vic Kelley:

    The spam I get involves people praising web sites that sell ____ always some big name brand of shoe, boot or purse. Useless stuff. Then there are the "bbw" personal dating sites whatever the hell that means.

  4. Jens Fiederer:

    I THINK it is either "big busted women" or "bisexual black women"

  5. Matthew Slyfield:

    It means Big Beautiful Women. Depending on the tastes of the individual this can range from slightly heavyset women that still have all the right curves to the grotesquely obese.

  6. Karl K:

    "since the down of Google's ranking methodology"?
