Inspired by Mr Troy Hunt‘s post “No, I won’t link to your spammy article“, you’ll almost only have been directed to this page from a link I sent you. The email would have been a reply to one you sent to me saying something like:
I read your article on <random post of mine> and noticed you mentioned <some keyword>. I have an article on <some parallel keyword> and wondered if you’d add it to your post– Some random spammer
I will not be adding this content to my blog. You see, you’re spamming me, and by extension, you’d be spamming my readers. You probably think this content isn’t spam. You’re a promoter not a spammer! Well, it’s unsolicited advertising content, so… as far as I’m concerned, yep, it’s spam.
To combat this, I’m following Troy’s lead. Every time I receive spam like this, I’ll be adding a link to top of the list below, and it will have the title of the resource you wanted me to link to, but with no link. I’ll also be tweeting a link to this page with the title of your page each time it happens.
