Fwd: subject line for a (probably?) marketing emails. Dan Frommer called it “messy” marketing in his last email.

It took me a second to figure out what was going on, and that I hadn’t actually been forwarded actual internal emails from a company CEO. That’s been particularly top of mind lately, after The Verge published “leaked” embarrassing Slack screenshots from Away, the luggage startup, which went viral and created a PR crisis.
Probably only works once.
