How Not To Write Persuasive Penis Enlargement Spam

Filed under: — site admin @ 11:19 PM GMT-0500

The spam that fills my in-box is not only unwanted but remarkably inept. Here are a couple of things to avoid:

  1. Describing the results of using your product as “incredible” or “unbelievable”. Or is this a clever legal defense against disappointed and litigious customers? “We specifically said that our claims were ‘incredible’, your honor.”
  2. Promising “no more paid sex”. Some men like to be paid for sex. How do they expect us to pay our rent?

Of course, if they had either the brains or the diligence required for success in a more respectable line of work, they wouldn’t be spamming, would they?
