Spamming Bloggers...

“Dialog Solutions GmbH”, a company from Hamburg, Germany, is spamming “150 bloggers” asking to please “write an article about <product name>”. This quote from the long mail is hilarious (I had to get a confirmation from <name> that it’s indeed them, which was almost hard to believe):

One more thing : We’d like you to post your article in the first or second week of June.
Reason: We want to create a “Blogstorm” within a short amount of time.

The company homepage claims to know all about “viral marketing” and “online viral tracking.” Well, track this, Dialog Solutions: spam isn’t viral. Though I wonder if the company aims to provoke negative news, well-knowing bloggers will complain?
