I get dozens of emails every week from people who want to post shit on my site — despite the fact that I have never posted an unsolicited article. They don’t benefit my readers and they annoy me, so I’ve declared war on them.
Here are some samples:
I know you’re swamped, so I’ll be brief.
Your website came across my eyes and it looks like something that I would like to cooperate with.
I am working as a freelance copywriter at WriteMyEssayOnline, and it would be a pleasure to write a guest/sponsored post for you and your followers.
Just let me know if you are interested in the offer — I’ll be in touch to discuss details.
Best regards, Outreach Specialist WriteMyEssayOnline

Yes, I know “link building” is a real thing, and that some people accept money to have random content placed on their site to enhance the contributor’s search results. But my site withoutbullshit.com is a reflection of me. These constant emails are just an annoyance.
I mostly just respond politely in the negative and ask them to take me off their list. I’ve occasionally enjoyed toying with these bottom feeders, telling them that my price for a contributed post is $10,000, for example (they pay $10). I think having somebody else do your homework is reprehensible, so I told the “WriteMyEssayOnline” emailer to “drop dead,” and he responded “go to mothers grave retard” . (Those must be some impressive essays, with that level of writing talent.)
I’m done screwing around.
Prepare to be spammed, suckers
There’s now a notice prominently posted on the site regarding my policy.
Anyone with a brain who visits my site can read the policy and understand the consequences.
If you have something useful to share with me, based on actually having a clue who I am and what I cover, I welcome your emails. I get plenty of good content suggestions that way.
Anyone with a mailing list who doesn’t give a crap who I am and is using an email template can go to hell. You are just spamming me as efficiently as possible, and I’m not having it.
If you treat me and my site a target for your link building spam, then I’ll just publish your email address. Do you find that inconvenient? Boo hoo.
I’m a nasty, vindictive old man. Deal with it.
