I just got through going through the process to send an email to someone offering to help them to fix their down website. You don’t know how long I sat seething, thumping my fingers, trying to decide whether he deserved my help given he had wasted my time, bandwidth, mail account space, etc. But in the end I clicked the link and went to the website and entered the code.
Of course then I’m spammed by SpamArrest (they deserve no link). I know it isn’t really spam, just an ad, but since I didn’t want it to be on their site in the first place, I was extra annoyed.
