    Clever!

    Still it’s sad that so many of these ridiculous messages spam up my inbox. The crap keeps coming, which means that enough people out there are actually responding to them…

    What a coincidence…. I got that exact same email!

    I didn’t know you had gambling sites Jim.

    […] Create communication to websites you think are of value to your users and explain why your site and their website should exchange links. Provide real connections. There is nothing more annoying than getting poorly crafted or poorly related link requests. Here’s my favorite response from Jim Boykin’s Blog as it relates to the poorly crafted link request. […]
