It’s not the gay nor the BLT sandwich but the business that pisses me off.

A couple of days ago I reveived this message via email:

We saw your business on the web and wanted to invite you to add a Free Listing to the largest and highest ranked Gay and Lesbian Directory serving the LGBT community.

We are #1 on Google with over 30,000 hits a day. You get a full page with contact info, picture gallery, description, and map with directions to your business.

It totally pissed me off. This is not difficult as I am easily pissed off by web bullshit.

It was not the gay thing that pissed me off however. It was not the BLT bit although being a northern lad I prefer bacon sandwiches to be adulterated only by fried egg and brown sauce.

No, what pissed me off was the stuff about my business. I do not have a business online. I do not have a business at all. So if people are going to gather data on my web activities I just wish they would write some decent software capable of analysing it properly.

Or better still, respect my privacy and fuck the fucking fuck off.

  1. You know when these emailers are lying – its when their automated keyboard is clicking! I have had some hilarious ones sent to me over the years, yet I am still utterly bemused why people fall for these things!

  2. It s enough to make a cat cry! I love the ones that say you have inherited a few million from some guy who died in a plane crash….just send your bank details so they can put the money in your account….

  3. Apparently people do fall for it – they they get in touch with one of those BBC consumer protection programmes and are interviewed by a carrot that looks like a willie.
