    Is it just me or have people finally stopped sending that chain letter crap? Or is it just me? I was thinking today... don't you think most of that stuff was so popular only because the hipsters were forwarding them ironically? http://www.instantrimshot.com/ But seriously, that really actually might have been the case.

    And another thing. How come noone used that stuff for actual spam? You know, something like... if you send this email to 20 of your friends your dick will shrivel up, but if you don't, it will fall right off. Luckily you can use our special dick cream that cures shriveled dicks afterwards, so you can send this to whomever you like. I always thought this was a billion dollar idea, but I never had the nerve to deal with all the courts and the attorneys...

    good point, I mean, anytime you got one of those there might be 180 people's name in the email (those list your name then send to 10 more people kind) I mean... if you make it targeted... you could probably bank... like, sign your name and then send to 10 more people if you feel your car insurance company is ripping you off.

    then cleverly place your CPA link to an insurance quote offer somewhere in the email (those pay pretty well last time I checked)...

    I'm not just talking about CCs, if it goes the way of the chain letter, you're looking at millions and it doesnt cost you anything.

    1 Problem i think would be that you would need many links maybe ? so it won't go spambox, though i don't really know if you send to contacts trough some interface on gmail for example ( never done such) does it count o_0

    But pretty nice idea if you can find right audience and blast like 100k and make even some of the people send it forward could spread pretty neat :) Not bad idea after all :O

    Happy days next week is holiday got to write on to do list lol 1+
