    I was just reading some sports blogs as I sometimes do to take a short break from my work, the guy who wrote the article mentioned how something he said might get him 800 emails with people disagreeing... which got me thinking... what about comment spamming well known blogs and new articles and write something that is obviously ignorant but believable, or that just goes against what the average reader would think.. like for a sports article catering to Texas Longhorns fans, write a comment about how they're going to get it handed to them by Florida if they meet in the national championship game, go on for a few lines, cite a few facts.... and leave your email address and invite anyone who disagrees to personally email you

    I am pretty sure you would get a lot of tards emailing you on some of these issues, especially sports related and politically related... and then you have a very niche / topic targeted mailing list

    I'm not set up for mailing at the moment but plan on giving this a try at some point, would like to hear from anyone who's tried it or does try it.

    (for any newbies reading this... no you would not be spamming them with the same email you posted, you would use a separate email for that and space it out, wait at least a week or so before sending the spam, and keep the spam targeted to what their obvious passion is from your communication with them)

    I think this is an interesting strategy. People love to argue with each other on the internet. Would definitely get attention, and as you said get you a nice targeted mailing list.

    Yes, I think your idea might work. However, it might work only for a few niches, like the ones you mentioned in order to get enough emails in response to your posts.

    Yeah I think its something you'd have to automate to post over a lot of articles on a given topic... I have noticed that some big sites.. like espn, don't require a captcha to register....
