I get a TON of junk/spam emails like all other domain owners and human beings that spend above average time on the Internet. Alex who seems to be an agent or fake name for the owner Chris James of NewFoundland has taken it to the next level. I have received at least 12 emails over the last 3 days with some coming as many every couple hours asking me to buy puddl.com (I assume because I own puddles) . Here is the typical email I receive with a little bonus of a famous quote at the end that changes with each new email.

Advice to consider: Work while it is called today, for you know not how much you will be hindered tomorrow. One today is worth two tomorrow’s; never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today. — Benjamin Franklin
All would be well in fine but there is not unsubscribe button and emails responding to take me off the list don’t work. I’m using the “bounce” method, that bounces the email back looking like the email is no good but so far it doesn’t work. Again, I realize these types of emails are a part of life on the Internet but it pisses me off when another domain investor does it to me. I’ve always wanted to see Newfoundland. I’ve heard it’s pretty this time of year. Looks like I am going to have to make a road trip to “have a little talk” with this James fellow
