I got this weird email just a few hours ago:

Message sent via contact form by: kimberly capps
URL:

how do i get the redemption button for my email?

I was confused about this "redemption button", so I asked this Kimberly:

Hi Kimberly,

I'm not sure what you're referring to. Could you explain a little more on
what you're looking for?

Regards,
Chu Yeow

And so she replied:

what we are trying to find is the redemption button for our email so we can retrieve our free plane tickets!

I think I just got my first email prank. Either that or something has gone awry with search engine results. This weblog didn't turn up on Google for "redemption plane tickets" though.

Anyway, now is as good a time as ever to point out that the "redemption" in "redemption in a blog" is actually my online pseudonym/nickname/handle. I thought it would be a nice play of words. This is not a redemption counter. There are no free gifts.
