Dealing with Personal Spam
from the thought-that-note-was-personal?--think-again dept
I get these sorts of emails all the time. Emails from friends who are working at (or with) a startup pitching the product to me. I was never as bothered as the author of this article, but I do find it interesting. People feel comfortable spamming their friends. While the thinking may be opportunistic (as the author of the article implies) I do think that generally the people really are proud of what they’ve accomplished and are trying to get that across to people they know.
