BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


BBelievers

One reader has a suggestion for the Believers...

Shouldn't they be "BBelievers" instead of "Believers"?

He's right, I'll make it so.

This isn't a BBeliever, but it does come from Nigeria...

OK, now for the real BBelievers...

Subject: nigerian money give a-way

Hello,
I just read about the nigerian gentleman who wanted to give his money away. I believe I received an e-mail from him but it asked for money to send it to my bank account. I don't have any money, to poor to send money even to get money. Is this true? Is this still happening, because the article was from 2003. please let me know if this is real or a joke because it is cruel to give poor people hope and then dash it. I desperately need money just to live.

I must be cruel only to be funny.

Sorry, I am not fooled.

You probably failed physics in school. Are you trying to make am mends?

April the first is not the antipodean equivalent of Sept. 2.

Love and best wishes.

Whoa-ho, he sure got me didn't he. I've been zinged by the master! (I never failed a physics class).


BBenefits of BBspot

One reader wrote in to say there was a problem with a link (turns out it was a problem with his Shockwave install), but revealed one of the BBenefits of BBspot...

Hi Brian,

Just to let you know that as tempting as PengaPop looks (especially today) - it nukes my IE6! :(

Still a big fan of BBspot - after all, I got promoted twice in 1 year after reading it!!! Keep up the good work...

Regards,

Pete

I enlarged the text, so you wouldn't miss the key point of the e-mail. Of course, he only received the promotions after making a copy of the website and sending it to 10 of his friends. If you need a raise or know somebody who does, BBspot could be the answer.

The preceding message was brought to by the BBspot World Domination 2010 Fund.


That's all for this week!
