Looks like spam, right? Especially since the e-mail right after it had the same subject line (with a comma after "hello") and was indeed spam. I honestly don''t know why I opened this one, but I did, and this person got lucky that her e-mail wasn''t sent to spam.

Speak Schmeak

It is technically not against the CAN-SPAM Act to send an unsolicited message to someone, as long as you have an unsubscribe option available to them and you honor it within ten business days. But honoring CAN-SPAM doesn't protect you from someone reporting you as a spammer anyway.

Interestingly, some mail got through, including plenty of spam. I'm afraid that some e-mails sent to me over the past 4-5 days have disappeared into thin air. I was apparently creeping up on my disk space quota and my host wasn't notified, and therefore didn't notify me. If you e-mailed me any time since June 26 and you haven't yet heard from me, please resend your message. I would have responded by now

Here is a list of statements that refer to polite behavior with special application to the workplace.

I wanted to do something totally different that I knew would shock them out of their afternoon low.
