Just I’m clear on this, Jeff, you’d still be a spammer today, working 10 hours a week, if things hadn’t collapsed around you? Isn’t that the same as the career criminal saying, “I’m not sorry I did it, I’m sorry I got caught doing it.” It’s also interesting that you blame Google, yet you were more than a willing participant. You were made for spamming, Jeff. I think that’s the crux of your article. Spamming requires an odd conscience and you have it. Surely there must be something close to spamming you can get into. I’d hate to see you go legit (it wouldn’t suit you at all).

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
