    I recently received a message from someone who wanted to solicit business as a content writer. Part of the messages said:

    We are native speekers who always write best Englush and get top rank position.
    Of course, with talent like that I hired him immediately. The IP address indicated that the message was from India. I wasn't sure if the message was a spam message and a joke, or if he actually does write good Englush.

    I got a message via the forum feedback mechanism a couple of days ago that said:
    Hi! This is my first time registering to the forum but it won't allow me. I am a spammer but I havent even done anything. Pls help
    All I can figure is the Philippines must have really strict truth-in-advertising laws.

    My response to this would be, "Sure. I will be happy to help you. Go sign up at DigitalPoint."

    It is a good thing that guy is in the Philippines. If he was in the USA, you might end up with a lawsuit from some slick attorney based upon "restraint of trade."
