Ahahaha. Woke up to two wonderful things in my inbox this morning...

One was from a market I really want to crack: they want to hold a story I adore for possible inclusion in the magazine. At this point, they say, about 1 in 20 stories make it from here. I've had a few get this far, but never actually made it in. Hopefully this one is the charm. More news as events warrant.

The other thing was not "wonderful" so much as "irritating," but the wonderful part comes from the addendum at the bottom. I will reproduce the entire thing for your amusement. Bolding mine.

Hey,

I was wondering if you generate any business from your website?
I know exactly how to accomplish that using SEO to drive targeted traffic back to your site.
If your interested in discussing, just reply back.
Thanks,

Zach

Dude, screw you. I'm pretty sure that "applicable law" is completely meaningless to spammers like you, because otherwise you wouldn't be breaking it by sending me unsolicited commercial mail for my LJ account. Therefore, your "confidential" email is reproduced here, in all its spammy, misspelled glory, for my flist, my Tweeps, and my FB friends to laugh at. Not only that, but if you actually read my LJ, your very first question there would be answered in the (mostly) negative--and you would already know how I feel about spammers. Hell, I have a tag.

Not only that, but if I'm not the intended recipient, then how would I know that without reading your stupid spam first? But apparently if I'm not the intended recipient, I'm not permitted to read the damned thing at all? Do you people even listen to yourselves? Oh, yes, I'm surely going to notify the sender and whoever that is at the bottom that this is a live email address so they can spam me more! That's a peachy idea! How about I create a bunch of dummy accounts and spam you with them with BUY MY BOOK?

Also, learn the friggin' difference between "your" and "you're." At least then I won't have something else to point and laugh at you about.
