Log Homes Now Mainstream?

Like most of you, I receive spam for every conceivable product and far too much slips past my daisy-chain of spam filters.  Those spammers are indeed a very crafty bunch.

In all these years, I have NEVER received spam from a log home related company… until yesterday.  Is this a reason to celebrate or to cry?  I couldn’t believe it when I saw it because I couldn’t imagine a company in this industry risking it all to spam the universe.

Fortunately, my spam filter snagged this one, but I’m one of those who must check the spam daily because I get so much mail from ‘online forms’ or folks who aren’t familiar with the verification process.

Anyway, I receive 2,000 – 3,000 spam messages every day and can usually zip through the list quickly.  I’ll check out any whose subject catches my eye or I recognize the domain, etc.  Well, this one mentioned log homes in the subject even though my filter identified it as spam.

I was pleased to find out that the message was not sponsored by anyone identifiable in the log home industry. It had beautiful pictures of log homes and a call to action to learn more, but the link was a garbage domain with useless information.

In the world of spam, where everything from airfare deals to Viagra are the norm, seeing ‘Log Homes’ included in the mix might just be an encouraging sign.  Maybe (hopefully) the spammers success from their typical email trash is now bad enough that they are trying new niches.

With any luck, the word will spread to the spammers that log home people are not good spam targets and they will move on to other niches like fertilizer or cat food.  How about you?  Have you ever received spam from a log home company?
