Open Response to John Barnes

I’ve been getting some amazingly good junk mail lately. I got one tonight that I just can’t pass up; it requires a response. But emailing back to the sender is no fun, because I’d rather share the joy with you.

I visited truetech.org today and really like it. You have a good clean layout.
Oh, thanks, John! I’ve spent a long time refining the design, and I’m grateful that you find it attractive.

I’ve found your website to be a good fit for our visitors.
That’s great! What kind of site do you have?

We run a Adult Lingerie & Sex Toy store and i would like to trade links with you. If you’d like to exchange links with us please add your inforamtion to our site at http://www.sextoys-247.co.uk/resources.html
Oh, my. Well, maybe you didn’t read my site as thoroughly as you thought. I’ve got no problem with lingerie, or course, but I don’t know if I want to advertise it on my personal weblog. And then, the whole “sex toy” thing might be a bit offputting for some of my readers (note to Mike: yes, not all readers, I know). Um, yeah. Oh, and you spelled “information” incorrectly.

You can see my site at http://www.sextoys-247.co.uk. I could give your site a prominent listing on my page at http://www.sextoys-247.co.uk/resources.html, if you would be willing to do the same.
Gee, I don’t know, John. I’d be kind of hesitant to link to your site at all. I try to run things in a pretty family-friendly way and everything. And you want a prominent listing no less? I think I’m going to have to go ahead decline this one, John. I’m sorry it didn’t work out, but, I just don’t see much of a business case for either of us in this. Thanks for thinking of me, though.

I won’t need his links soon anyway. I’ve got a business deal cooking with some dead general’s son from Nigeria. I should pocket about a million bucks on that one. Sweet. Long live the InterWeb!
