A Public Service Message – Spam

July 19th, 2005 · No Comments · Uncategorized

You guys. I’m on the home stretch of the new book, so I know the Blog entries have been few and far between, but I’ll pick up soon.


In the mean time, I’ve noticed that a fair amount of my e-mail has been eaten by my spam filter. While most of this is actually spam, some of the reader mail is being caught too. I really, really try to answer all my mail, so if you didn’t get an answer to a note you wrote me, that’s probably what happened.


I really don’t have time to go through the spam file every day, especially when under a deadline like this (and what’s the point of a spam filter if you’re looking at the crap every day anyway), but someone hipped me to the fact that if you send a note without something in the subject line, it has a much better chance of getting caught. So, just a hint –if you’re sending an e-mail, not just to me, but to a friend or colleague, put something in the subject line, and try to avoid phrases like 20% off or free Vicodin in your subject.


Sorry if I’ve missed your letters. Try again.


Carry on.
