When I open my mail email account for Team CSS-Tricks and every single email is someone reaching out to put spam on our site.
The email itself isn’t really spam. It’s a real person (although I doubt it’s a real person named “Lisa Turnbull”) using templates to try to get site owners to update blog posts with their “resources”. It’s spam. If you do it, it will hurt your site and help theirs. I think what they are doing should put them in jail. And yet the world rewards them instead. They make money. What few takers they get on this are enough to keep this spammy world growing.
It’s just a depressing movement, and I mention it here because email is a real enabler of this and I wouldn’t blame anyone for being down on email if this is their main experience with it.
