I just saw your link to 000domains.com on your webpage
http://postneo.com/2002/07/25.html . Our site,
Cheap-DomainRegistration.com, sells domain names for much cheaper (only
$8.75 with no hidden fees). We would like to place your site in our
directory of Domain Names and Internet Resources if you are interested in
exchanging links. (We understand that we may have to make a new category
for your site.) Even if you are not interested in exchanging links would
you place a link to our site on yours? In either case, the HTML for our
link can be found at http://www.cheap-domainregistration.com/domain_names/
I look forward to hearing from you.
Cheap Domain Registration
I must say that this is probably one of the more interesting spam emails I have recieved. Here are some reasons why:
It is not about penis enlargement.
It is plain text
It is extremely targeted.
The email cites a url that links to 000domains.com (they’re great btw)
I was able to find one instance of a similar email by querying google with “Chris Rogert”
Chris also thinks you should check out winnerzone.com, a site developed by accelocom.com.
