Replying to More Email

I get a lot of great feedback from my readers. I get other email as well. Here is another installment of replies to emails that I usually ignore (see the first one here).

Dear Julia,

Thank you for the opportunity to profit from writing a post that directs my readers to your forex broker. Forex trading has all the advantages of trading against extremely highly skilled opponents without the built-in tendency for prices to rise that we see with stocks. If I ever lose my empathy for fellow human beings, I’ll take you up on your offer.

Sincerely,

Michael

Dear Blair,

Forgive me if I’m a little skeptical of your claimed ability to offer unbiased financial advice to Canadian seniors. What threw me off was the phrase “Gold Price” in your organization’s name and the reference to “proprietary trading algorithms.” When you say that current seniors are the wealthiest generation ever, is it your mission to cure them of this affliction?

Sincerely,

Michael

  1. This series is rapidly becoming my favorite.

    "is it your mission to cure them of this affliction?"...pure gold! (pardon the pun)

  2. @Mark and @Anonymous: Glad you liked the replies. The question ending in "... affliction?" was my favourite. Or maybe by calling it gold you're saying its' overpriced? :-)

  3. I get some pretty personal responses to blog posts (which is why all comments on my blog are premoderated). Last week someone posted their SIN number on my website as they asked me to followup with the government on something unrelated to life insurance. Not a client either, just a random website visitor.

    1. @Glenn: It sounds like you get more feedback from misguided and too-trusting people than I do.
