An email from Shaun Inman

It's not every day you get an email from Mr. Inman. Okay, it's not everyday I get an email from him. Well, today is that day.

The subject line was a little cut off so I clicked on the message. Turns out it says, "Everything in you will improve with growth hormone." Hmmm, intriguing.

"Human Growth Hormone is produced naturally by your body with the purpose of keeping your system fine and fit. With age the production of this hormone declines. You can stimulate the release of this wonderful hormone into your body with Regenesis HGH! It's natural, safe and effective!

Hmmm, has Shaun decided to give up Mint for a life of selling growth hormones? I think only he knows for sure.

PS: Yes, this email was spam but ever the more hilarious with this context.

Oh man, Shaun is NOT going to be happy. He specifically told us HGH beta testers NOT to release this information under any circumstances.

Since the cat's out of the bag, though, I'll just say this: Shaun has put together some of the sexiest HTML spam e-mails you've ever seen for this new product. You guys will not be disappointed with it. I can't wait un til I can say more publicly.

Oh wow. thats incredible. hahaha. What are the chances that you would receive it from him?

Maybe you will receive more in the future? Maybe he will announce you as a winner of a foreign lottery!

I hope it was Web 2.0 spam (scroll a little) at least. These emails are my secret shame. Mint really isn't doing as well as I would have everyone believe ;)

Nice. Did the spam have a lot of Javascript? I bet it had lots of sexy javascript...with all the functions preceded by "SI_"

:-p
