    Cool
    yes, looks really funny when the merge doesn't work.

    I get spam messages some times with MESSAGE SUBJECT as the subject.

    This is why I am never impressed with any "personalized" emails from affiliate programs. I figure, if it's successfully "personalized" all it means is that the merge worked right!

    Better than that, is when someone accidently forwards an email back to you, when they ment to send it to someone else. Especially, when it may contain things they might not have wanted you to read!

    It is understandable for AMs to make mistakes when deal with houndreds thousands of affiliates...

    But I do impressed by some AMs sending emails to me periodically checking things out. Whenever I got those true personalized emails, I responsed to them right away with my thoughts.

    They care, I care.

    Spam Mail
    I received a spam mail the other day...

    From: Scam
    Subject: Stalker

    Not only were they telling me what was inside, but they were even discouraging me from opening it (who wants a stalker?)! How great is that? The only thing better would be to NOT RECEIVE IT AT ALL!

    Cheers,
