Gold Digger

Astute readers will notice that I have an email address listed at the bottom of my blog for those who wish to stalk me or send me interesting spam.

As yet I have not had to swear out any new restraining orders and the spam I have received has been depressingly normal.

Several have come from what I will assume is the same person even if the “company” name is different. I was not entirely sure what services were being offered when I first read it, as I am not much of an online gamer, but subsequent googling has revealed to me to the interesting practice of something called “gold farming”.

The spam mail I receive is always the same – written in a conversational style with, for spam, decent spelling and grammar. The spam’s author bemoans the fact that she-he-it must play the boring bits World of Warcraft to get whatever the in-game currency is, but that she-he-it has found this wonderful new company, blardi-blar-blar send me money.

The concept is pretty simple – the gold farmer does whatever dull, repetitive tasks have to be done to earn the in-game currency and then sells it to the other player for real money.

Wait – this is a job?

Technically no. Most game companies have banned the practice, getting caught usually means having your profile deleted.

You’ll notice the operative words “if you get caught”

That has got to be the saddest job ever. You spend all day doing the dull, pointless stuff, and instead of moving up to a more exciting level, you sell all your … whatevers and start all over.


It’s time for Spam!

I have finally gotten some good incoherent spam!

Not the delicious meaty treat, the other stuff.

Well, medicine-man,I’m glad you loved what you received and found my “sketch” tasteful and stylish and I’m sorry for delivering whatever nervousness you might have felt. And I hope you found a better shield for your hike. I’m not quite sure what brand of crazy you are selling, but I ain’t buying it. To the trash can with you and your grammatical errors!

Whatever you are on, you don’t need to get any more. In fact, you might want to get your dosage checked.

Although I definitely get annoyed when people think about worries that they don’t know about.
