i've had a spate of these recently. normally from apparently semi-relevant places.

they get ignored especially due to the semi-blackmail "if you don't link us, we'll be forced (forced i say!) to remove your sites link". (i say semi because it's only blackmail at a sub-logical level.)

I had a similar email wanting to list me under "Mexico" because I took some photos of a
dump of a border town.

I once casually referred to the word "prospectus" when being pretentious and arty, and have been spammed by people doing dodgy share flotations ever since as a result!

I never have, and I still get those.

I get non-specific ones, but these refer to my article "Re: psychogeography", and saying things like "please send me yr prospectus, I have capital to injvest in ventures concerning the oil industry."

Oh right - no I don't get those. :-)
