Now and again it has to be done

I get a lot of these types of email below. I’m truly surprised just how spammy folk in marketing can be at times. I think — on average — I get one of these emails from this company each month. I’m amazed as the presumption and the underlying pedestrian viewpoint of the author. If you think MIR is good enough to be covering your news, perhaps give some thought to briefing me accordingly. I have no idea who the company is or what they do. 

I thought you might like to see the sort of thing that fills up my inbox. 

And you never know, there might be some readers genuinely interested. 

Me? I’m keen to see how Posterous handles the forwarding of this mail and publishing of the attachment on to the site.
