Thread: SPAM Event Professionals Summit

  1. #1

    Default SPAM Event Professionals Summit

    Some motivational speaker named James Taylor has been spamming me.

    Did a little digging and seems he is affiliated in some way with my mando hero Mike Marshall, to whose email list I subscribe.

    Guess one marketing list leaked into another. Such is life in the internet fast lane, and cheers for good SPAM filters.

    I wish Mike would invite me to a mandolin retreat in Montana, or Colorado even. Italy is so far to drive!

    Yeah, I'm a snowflake, but you guys' replies are priceless, bless the Mandolin Cafe!

    I will maintain my fierce umbrage at naamgenoot commercial contamination of the purity of artist communication.
