Spam email of the week

Subject: yard sale watch

Cool. I could use a watch from a yard sale. And email seems like the perfect place to get it.

My name is David Bailey and I created a FREE yard sale
app called " yard sale watch " for the Iphone.


I bet Mr. and Mrs. Bailey are proud. And that's coming from someone who creates FREE spam email writeups on his blog.

If you see a yard sale or if you are having a yard sale, just click the blue house button on the app and it pins your location. You can add up to 3 photos, share it on facebook,twitter

Here is me doing that:

I just checked in at [total stranger's driveway]. Trying to talk them down on this: (picture of XXXXL Sean Jean t-shirt on hanger) and this: (picture of Warren Beatty-signed Dick Tracey movie poster) If you're on #yardsalewatch holla atcha boy. (selfie) Oh, and anyone out there know the market price for this? [404 ERROR - YOU HAVE EXCEEDED MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF PICTURES ALLOWED ON YARD SALE WATCH APP. PLEASE CLOSE APPLICATION AND RESTART.]

and when your done,

It's almost as if they don't teach English at yard sale app design school.

just delete your post its that easy.

Easier would be: not having to delete it. But OK.

Go to the app store and get it today.

No.

We have 40 users to date, it just released yesterday.

Neither of these things are convincing.

Nope.

website:
www.yardsalewatch.com


This app has a website?

Oh, the website is a Facebook page and it has more than 4,000 likes, which is approximately 3,900 more than this very blog. Maybe I should post more stuff like this:


THERE IS NO DISTANCE OR OBSTACLE GREAT ENOUGH TO PREVENT ME FROM GETTING TO THIS YARD SALE

and this:

COOL WORDS ALBA. UNFORTUNATELY I WILL BE UNABLE TO PICK UP YOUR HOUSE EVEN THOUGH THAT SEEMS LIKE THE EASIEST WAY TO GET YOUR TABLE. I WILL PHONE CELL YOU THO.

I'm not saying you're lazy, but did you at all consider a sidebar where you interview David Bailey? It wouldn't have to be long:

Question 1: But WHY do you delete the post when your done posting it?

Question 2: No more questions
