I get email requests all the time for link exchanges generated by the visibility of the MCLI web site in Google (a virtue of having thousands of old web pages?). Today’s takes the cake, the icing, and the last bottle of cold beer:
While surfing the web, I came across your excellent resource of real estate links at (http://www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu) I am a webmaster of a Real estate site http://www.[deleted].org. I was wandering if you can give a link to my site from your above mentioned URL. Below is a sample HTML to be included at your URL for linking my site.
Real estate appraisal – Online information provided within this site is formatted and presented in a way to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our real estate agents.
Now either Daniel is incapable of reading, lacks cognition skills, or is just a research subject in a random keyboard study at the Primate Institute…. as there is no way that anyone with even the most minimal critical thinking skills could look at http://www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu and mistake it for a web site of real estate links.
I’d bet my left foot he is running spam software. Thus, for grins, I decided to compose dear old Daniel a reply, not for his sake, but mine, as a way of celebrating only one more week of having to sift through this crap:
Dear, dear poor Daniel.
This is the most absurb thing in today’s inbox. Obviously you never truly visited our web site (as it has zero connection at all to real estate) nor bothered to notice the “.edu” at the end of the domain.
Please take your email spam software and stick it deep where the sun does not shine.
A Growling, Drooling, Hungry Dog
When Daniel replies, I’ll be sure to share his eloquent words.
