The joys of having a public web site
I seem to get a lot of e-mails like this, regarding either this site or my photography portfolio site.

They've clearly harvested a bunch of e-mails and sites and haven't bothered to target it in the least -- semi-personalized spam asking me to give them free advertising.
Which probably sounds good to a testosterone-drunk marketeer, but makes me think they're just an idiot.
Does anyone else get these asinine e-mails?

Oh yeah. I get them all the time. And since I run about five different sites, I get them in extra helpings! Yeesh.
