Slow News Day? Respond To Some Spam
from the how-original dept
I’ve spoken before about reporters responding to spam. It seems that on a slow news day a reporter trying to come up with a news story eventually gets bored and looks at all the spam in their mailbox. Eventually they think it’s an original idea to respond to that spam and write a story about the experience. Of course, it’s been done many times before, but that won’t stop yet another reporter from trying. This one responded to some spam for a “free” seminar on creating your own internet business. About the only thing we learn is that the people who respond to this stuff tend to be naive, uneducated and gullible. I think we knew that before.
