Some time before my 20-year high school reunion I signed up at www.reunion.com. Ever since then, I’ve been getting a buttload of e-mails from these guys informing me of things like:
These show up every few days. It’s always a different number of searches.
I’d dismiss most e-mails like this as spam, but I did sign up for the site and I did legitimately opt-in to their mailing list. These e-mails also use both my legal given name and the diminutive I usually answer to - spam usually uses one or the other.
My question is, are all these people really trying to look me up, or is it just a ploy to get me to upgrade to a premium membership? I mean, when I first signed up at the site, I certainly poked around a bit to see if I could find any of my old buddies. I mostly didn’t, so I haven’t been back since my reunion. Frankly, I can’t think of eight people who would try to look me up after all this time.
