Back in April I wrote about some poor marketing automation that ended up spamming me with ‘cart abandonment’ emails when the issue was the company’s credit card processing went down. That post has now been scraped by the spammers Moosend and they keep sending me… poorly targeted automated spam.
So, yes, Moosend (who are prolific and annoying spammers) are sending me spam about a blog post where I complain about automated spam. And, yes, I nuked the URLs out of the screenshot because no, they don’t get the free advertising.
I’m just waiting for the email, in 6 months time, where Moosend notices I mentioned their name on this post and start spamming me with pitches for this blog post. Because that would be funny. Annoying and still spammy, but at least it would make me laugh.
(Edit: I’ve apparently confused moosend.com and madberry.com, who are actually the prolific spammers that hit me with “hey, we want to write content for your blog” multiple times a week. This is the first set of spam I’ve gotten from moosend. However, they are actively scraping addresses off websites to send mail.)
So… you’re basaically writing the script for “spamception: the spam within a spam about spam”
