Sometimes spam just gives me a good chuckle. Like this one that just arrived (a few details masked in case privacy is an issue):
I work for a company called Cyyyy
We are a real company located in Scottsdale Arizona…our offices are at yyyy E Via de Ventura #yyy, Scottsdale, AZ 85258 and our office line is 480-yyy-yyyy.
We are interested in purchasing your website/domain from you. We can offer you $500, payable immediately. We can pay you via papal, credit card, wire transfer, western union, or mailing you a check ñ whichever method is easiest for you.
Let me know what you think. And thanks very much for your time!!
$500 huh? I’ve never thought about the ‘value’ of this site, but I’d have to say $500 would hardly even pay set-up costs, let alone the hours and hours of writing and research behind the 1945 posts dating back to January 2002.
And that’s in this blog. I should also reckon in the MacTips archive (647 posts dating back to August 1999 — OK, the earliest ones were imported from static pages) and the Learning Centre (125 posts dating back to well before March 2006 — I’m still bringing in old material and adding recent material). They are all on this same base domain of MacTips.Info.
That’s a total of 2717 posts, and a bazillion words. Would I sell that for $500? Heck no!
