With the Christmas season almost upon us, I'd like to remind everyone to use the Amazon link on the right hand column to order your Christmas gifts - at least the big, expensive ones.
Also, for your amusement:
I am the webmaster for http://www.xxxxxxx.com
Sometime in the past we hired an SEO company to build links to our
website. At the time, we didn't know what kinds of links they were
building, and we were assured they would help our rankings. We are now
in a situation where these links are causing an algorithmic or manual
penalty on our domain.
We have identified which links we believe could be causing this, and
your domain was a part of the results.
I would greatly appreciate it if you removed all of the links to
http://www.xxxxxxx.com from your domain. Here is an example of
the links we have on your website:
Please let me know when you have removed our links from your domain.
We are very sorry if spam was placed on your domain on our behalf. Had
we known that our SEO company was potentially harming your domain and
ours, we would not have hired them!

Well, since you paid people to place those links there it's only fair if you pay me to remove them. $100 per link, payable in advance.
FYI this is far from the only request like this that I've received.
