I got some BBC spam today, well actually not BBC spam, but Mentorn TV spam who are producing a TV show for the BBC, the spam is looking for people to appear on the show - it sounds like one of those crappy BBC 3 things.
The BBC say
Don’t reply, ever!
Never buy anything from a spammer. Don’t make spamming worth the effort - plus you’ll get even more spam once they know you’re willing to buy.
So I expect the BBC will be rather disappointed in the number of particpants the show gets, and will presumably be ceasing all business with Mentorn TV, which would actually be a great shame as it produces a lot of quality shows, but really that just makes it worse that they’ve descended into sending spam.
