I receive about ten e-mails a day on one of my e-mails account (the one I expose to the blogging world), and I would say 1 out of 100 I read I even consider, and 1 in 1000 I reply to (usually because the person writing it worked hard enough to find my real name). That is a lot of spam to deal with daily. I’m not too fond of spam.
What kind of spam am I getting?
I am Lazy Dude.
I came across your website, while I was searching for advertisement opportunities.
I’m interested in advertising on your blog. I would like to know if you would be interested.
I would love to read back from you.

Seriously, does anyone answer these useless queries? You don’t use my name, you don’t even mention my website by name, and your translator did a crappy job as well. Yes, everyone needs to hustle to make a buck on the web, but this is just old-fashioned laziness.
If you want to advertise on my site, try a little more complicated, oh and NO, you can’t have a paid guest post either. I am getting quite picky these days.
