About a year back I rekindled a couple blog categories, scams and spam. I intentionally allow/release spam/scams to pass into my inbox so that I can post them in my blog. Amongst other things, the messages provide a wealth of content for my blog, maybe 125-150 posts. It is anything but keyword stuffing, but the SEO content is focused as it - I don't write it, yet I am the postal carrier.
I'm anything but an SEO expert, but I do try to keep aware of SEO trends. Having followed Panda/Penguin reforms for a couple years and watching a lot of HR posts I see what I see. The SEO proposal seems to me to be particularly ludicrous in light of current trends. Here is a common spam message:

You are rarely addressed by name, some state that they have reviewed your website, but provide no evidence that they even know your name (Hi there ...), and they include a list of 'tactics' that seem to be more about bloating the package, fluffing it up, as opposed, to 'Real SEO'. Many will include a signature at the end that says they are against spamming yet here they are. Some of the more laughable ones talk about content writing but can't seem to assemble a grammatically correct sentence. You frequently see guaranteed first page placement, yet no mention of implementing local or ads.
The question - no real question. Feedback appreciated.
