Long story short, a small loans outfit in the UK wanted me to post a link to their site on my Business Blog. “Kelly” was pretty persistent, to the point of being a pain. Here’s part of the transaction:
(4:37:26 PM) meeboguest598014: if I post a comment, it allows me to put my website, will that save as a link for me? I only need 1
(4:37:28 PM) meeboguest598014: 🙂
(4:37:48 PM) firstname.lastname@example.org/Home: i moderate commments.
(4:37:57 PM) meeboguest598014: will you let me do one
(4:38:01 PM) email@example.com/Home: no
(4:38:08 PM) meeboguest598014: If i comment that your a real nice guy
(4:38:14 PM) firstname.lastname@example.org/Home: it doesnt matter
(4:38:31 PM) meeboguest598014: hmm, 50$ for 1 link
(4:38:44 PM) meeboguest598014: pay you by paypal
(4:38:46 PM) email@example.com/Home: no thanks.
(4:38:56 PM) meeboguest598014: 250$ and thats final
(4:39:06 PM) meeboguest598014: pay you now! for 1 link
(4:39:33 PM) firstname.lastname@example.org/Home: that sounds nice, but it would be unethical for me to do so. we are a not-for-profit institution
(4:39:56 PM) meeboguest598014: well I would be making a donation in kind for your helpful service
(4:40:10 PM) meeboguest598014: please help me in this massive maze of the net
