Question of the Day

Shamelessly filched from SFDB:

What’s your biggest e-mail pet peeve?

Aside from the usual Nigerian scams that now come in different languages complete with the word salad to fool the spam filter, I get a lot of “Hi, I read your blog and really like it. Please post a link to my ad for _____.” Well, if they really do read my blog, then they’d know that I don’t take advertising. After that comes the chain e-mails from people who do not know how to link an attachment so I have to drill through several layers of forwarded e-mails to get to the picture of Aunt Gertrude’s cat dressed up for St. Swiven’s Day. That’s what Facebook is for.
