Pageflakes, apparently yet another Web 2.0 online-OS startup, has resorted to spamming people in an attempt to get their RSS subs button up on blogs. I received this email from Pageflakes on 5 June:
My name is Tegan and I am part of the Pageflakes team. I have visited your Blog and noticed that you offer a RSS subscription service to your users. May I suggest that you add the Pageflakes RSS subscription feature, too?
You can then use this button http://www.pageflakes.com/subscribe2.gif in combination with the link below:
http://www.pageflakes.com/subscribe.aspx?url= (followed by your Feed URL)
If you have any questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact me.
With kind regards
Disappointing really, that a Web 2.0 startup would resort to spamming, particularly when they can’t even use their you beaut Ajax driven tech to actually get my name right in their spam email!
