Automated Link Exchange Request

Here’s an example of an automated link exchange request. Although written in a generically personable way, this is obviously an automated program or bulk distribution email.

As a web site owner I find this kind of thing annoying. Not only is it spam mail, but I believe bulk link requests like this are actually harmful to both the originating site as well as those that link to it.

If you’re not sure what all this is about, please check out this related article: What is a link exchange?
