Missing the Point

I am aware that these days all I seem to do is poke fun at bad spam, but this amused me greatly this morning...

One of our websites has a 'contact us' form, which (as all contact forms do) asks you for your name, email address and message and then emails me whatever message they send. Pretty basic stuff.

The most common message we get is from SEO companies "guaranteeing" us the first page of Google (although not for any specific search term); I particularly like the fact that they always demand a response including the website address (but, err, YOU contacted US, surely you know who we are?!), phone numbers and physical addresses, despite usually being from somemadeupshit@gmail.com

Today, however, the "internet genius" who is offering us this fabulous service has put, as their email address, "224 Lawrence Road". Now, Gmail can be quite clever at times but I don't think even the mighty Google can deliver email to an address like that yet...

Yes, but you could go round and break his windows ;)

Starting to get tempting - he's now sending the exact same message every 12 hours. Presumably he hasn't yet worked out that he's not including any contact details so even if I wanted his crappy services, I couldn't take him up on it.
