Herewith, another of my half-ridicule, half-public-service posts about Lousy Spam Offers.
And yes, it's yet another link-trading deal, with the usual complete lack of any trace of relevance between the sites the spammer would like linked. But this one has some special extra garbage all its own!

Subject: dansdata.com....Link Exchange Request + Free Software Worth $200
We at Antique Engagement Rings (http://www.antique-engagement-rings.info) would like to exchange links with
We have already placed a link to your site and your link can be found here:
null [not linked to anything]
As you know link exchanging is an excellent way to increase your overall profile and strength within the Internet community.
As an added incentive I have arranged with one of our sister sites (who specialize in Internet Marketing) to GIVE you software worth over $200, just for swapping links!
Please go to this page here to add your link:

PS Details of the f-ree software, worth $200, can be found here:
This also includes a f-ree course on how to get your sites to positions 1,2 and 3 in just 6 weeks.
I had to tidy this up a bit, since "John" is a big fan of using the <br> element for formatting.
But that "f-ree software" must be a big winner, too.
As I write this, a Google search for "antique engagement rings" turns up antique-engagement-rings.info not as result 1, 2 or 3, as you'd expect if they were using their own "f-ree software" and it worked, but as result... nineteen (for separate words or the phrase "antique engagement rings"), despite the fact that this exact search is a perfect match for their domain name.
This, and antique-engagement-rings.info's PageRank of zero, could be in some way connected to the fact that their site is self-evidently useless.
