Isn't there some sort of inverse-spam service available? You know, rather
than having one company send mail to a million people, have a million
companies send mail to one person.
Although James Clarke didn't say what to do if we DIDN'T have need of his
services, it would be polite for us to acknowledge his broadcast - and since
we are all busy people, perhaps there is an automated service that will
deliver the acknowledgments for us and perhaps everyone else that might
receive his broadcast in the future...

Subject: poor James Clarke, the cgi EXPERT who can't get any projects...
I recvd this unsolicted email from a "James Clarke" offering his expert
services for web programming.
He looked up my email address through the whois services of domains I have
I did a quick search on google for his name
"James Clarke" +cgi +programming -david
and I found a whole bunch of people complaining about his spamming
Seems he's been up to this shameless self promotion for many years now.
He charges $25 / hour, which any educated business person knows is the
bottom of the pile in terms of talent. You get what you pay for, so be
Another queer thing, in his email he does not list any websites as
references of his EXPERT work.
What are you trying to hide James?
Ah email... Isn't it a great way to ruin your career?
From James Clarke:
I am a contract web programmer and have done work for many web
design companies and ad agencies. I specialize in both
CGI/Perl and ASP programming on Unix and NT platforms and
have worked on quite a few web projects including:
- database and site wide search engines
- web database systems
- e-commerce / web based shopping cart systems
- interactive threaded discussion forums
- realtime web chats
- web based surveys, polls and quizzes
- web form handlers with email auto-responders
I quote by the project and will gladly provide pricing estimates
upon request. Projects are completed within business time and
come with my install and update support. Should you have the need
for my services either now or in the future, please don't hesitate
to contact me.
