Everyone on the interwebs needs a good spam blocker. Personally, I’ve found gmail to be an awesome spam filter (more here) and big ‘G’ helps keep most of the spamming hordes at bay. Once in a while one gets through, and as much as I hate to admit it I might read the occasional unsolicited e-mail (while remembering my anti-spam Boulder Pledge). Like this one, from a helpful chap at Wiserep.com, who managed to evade the big G spam blocker for the umpteenth time in order to promise me untold riches -
Last month I sent you an email about selling your sauces through our stores. I think they’d be a great fit.
We work hand in hand with thousands of grocers, specialty food stores, large chains, convenience stores, gift shops, mail-order catalog companies and internet shopping sites. We look for products we think will sell to them, hence my email to you.
If you’re interetsed in selling your sauces to more stores visit us at WiseRep.com. We guarantee sales.

Ahm. We’re The Logo Factory. As in logos. Lots and lots of logos. Even a few designs for BBQ and Hot Sauces and what-have-you. But not an actual bottle of sauce to be seen. Mr. Thibos personally guarantees us sales of our sauces. Which would be fantastic. If we sold sauces. Which we don’t. The End.
Looks like I’m not on my own. Have Coffee Will Write is a little less kind, referring to Mr. Thibos as the ‘clueless internet marketer of the week‘. Methinks Mr. Thibos should give our 11 basic pointers of internet marketing a whirl.
Or we can come up with some Logo Factory sauces, I guess…
