Email Troll: “Your wonderful blog”

As you may know, I sometimes get contacted by content marketers. You may also know just how I feel about people contacting me without actually reading the blog first. Hint: not good at all.

Well, it’s happened again. I received another “cut-n-paste” request for a guest post. This time, I decided to give them a taste of their own medicine. It wasn’t the longest correspondence, but for what it’s worth:

Wonderful! Oh, yes, most wonderful indeed. Splendid, even.

How old are they and what breed?

Sadly, I never found out what breed they were, because for some reason Bipasha didn’t get back to me. I bet they were huskies, though.

  1. This line is so good Daniel: “I wish you keep stringing letters together and putting phrases into complete paragraphs!”
    Because it is exactly how the troll letter reads.
    Makes me want to send you a troll request just to play. 😉

  2. Until now, I’ve always deleted these comments immediately. But you seem to have such fun with them. Maybe I will respond the next time – and then I can blame it on you if I subsequently get swamped with such requests!

    • Thank you for your comment. Please continue to write amazing letters and words in your comments. They are wonderful!

      And I dare you to actually respond to some people. Hey, you’re hiding behind the screen…what’s the worst thing that could happen? (Famous last words.)
