Like any website with a contact form, The Daily WTF gets its share of spam. In addition to saying the darndest things, spammers will often push SEO services with a message like this.

Hi,

My name is Amy Thompson and I would really love to tell you 
how thedailywtf.com can rank even better in Google.

I'm a SEO expert working at SEO Search Results and while doing
a research for some of my colleagues I found your email address and
decided to contact you immediately.

If you are interested I will be happy to send the additional 
information and all the details needed to make it happen.

Thanks a lot,

Amy

Normally, I'd just ignore these emails. But this time - perhaps because I had one dram of scotch too many - I decided to respond.

YES!!!!! LET’S SUCCEED TOGETHER!!!!!

 

I'll admit, it wasn't a very creative response, and most people wouldn't respond to a message like mine. But then again, Amy isn't like most people.

Hello Alex :) 

Thank you for getting back to me so fast, I'd like to tell you more 
about my previous email :) 

I have a beautiful website that I would like to show you:

placing a fresh page for your article with unique content that will 
speak about your site and will contain 2 or 3 links toward your site; 
1 link to the homepage and 2 more links that will be directed to 2 
different inner pages of your site. 

In return, I would like the same; that a new Article page will be 
created for me on your site. I would like to write a page what will 
speak about Safe Online Casino Gambling and place 2 or 3 links to my 
informational casino reviews site in the same method that is made 
for you; 1 link to the homepage and 2 more links to the inner pages 
of my site. 

have good PageRank :)

Thank you for your time and I'm looking forward for your reply, 

 

If you visit the site Amy linked (don't worry, it's just a picture), I'm sure you would have responded exactly like I did.

Dearest Amy,

My bad, I meant to send that to another Amy who sent me an email as 
well. 

The other Amy's email was about the weather, and I think told her 
that I'm want to succeed together... which was probably very 
strange to her.

But yes I want to work together. Who should I send an invoice to?

Warmest Regards,

Alex

 

I thought it was over, and that I had lost Amy forever. But she wrote back a few days later!

My Dearest Amy,

I am glad to see your email again. 

Actually, I am currently on a camping trip in the great plains near 
the Kansas-Nebraska border. It's very quiet here, but it's also very
pretty (like you), and I wish you were here to see it.  Maybe some 
day.

But... I will return home in a few days, and then I can publish the 
article you had put so much effort into making. I know my readers 
will love to learn about Casino Gambling!

Take care, I will reply to you as soon as I can.

Love,

Alex

 

But I just couldn't stop thinking of her. So I sent her this, with pictures from Welfl@flickr.

My Dearest Amy,

I'm still on my camping trip in Kansas, but I was thinking about you
and took a couple of pictures to show you.

See what I mean, how pretty it is??

I'll write again when I get back in town.

Love,

Alex

 

Thankfully, it didn't take her long to write back.

Hi :)
 Hope you are doing good. 

Kindly publish our article that I sent a few days back. I know you
must be terribly busy but we have put in a lot of effort in making 
an article for you and would like to see it get published. 

Also waiting for links from your side to complete the deal.

My Dearest Amy,

Thank you for writing again!!! 

:-)

>3

;-)

After my maple syrup incident, I had to get a whole new computer. 
Before I threw away my old computer, I wrote down your email 
address... but I must have written it as ".com" not as ".net". 
So when I emailed you, it came back as "address not found" or 
some strange error.

That made me sad. I thought you didn't want to be my friend any
more, or maybe you went and got a restraining order on me. But 
you're here now, so we can put that behind us!!

So can you please once again send me this article? I wanted to 
post already, but it was on my old computer which is covered in 
syrup and won't turn on anymore.

Love,

Alex

I am sorry this took such a long time, but I'm excited it is finally done! Now, as you promised, could you please send a picture of yourself to me? Preferably, in an outdoor location with trees and/or grass. Love, Alex

 

I'm sure that you can imagine my excitement when I received a reply back later that evening.

 Great to see that you  published our article. but if you visit 
the page, you can see that the code is not working. 
 <a href =”http://www.premiere-casinos.com/”> top recommended

make the link work. could you please see to it?
will send you a pic as soon as I have one

But wait… no attachment!? Nothing, none? Maybe if I upload the article, she'll finally send it as she promised...

My Dearest Amy,

I am still waiting on a picture from you :-(

You said that if I posted this article for you, then you would send 
me a picture. It is OK if you don't have one of you standing in 
front of some trees, but maybe one of you standing by an indoor 
plant would be nice. Or even a painting of a plant.

I did correct the article, it is posted over here: http://thedaily
wtf.com/Articles/Re-Hello-Alex-ARTICLE-Right-Site-For-Casi-no-Ga

Please my dear Amy, I really need the picture of you. I have been 
waiting so long now.

Alex

Amy,

I did not want to do this over email, but I think I have to.

We need to break up. Our relationship has felt very one-way for a 
very long time, and I don't think we should be boyfriend/girlfriend
anymore. 

Take care,
Alex

 

To this day, I still think of the fond times that My Dearest Amy and I had together.
