After 6 years doing business on the internet I have come to theconclusion that at least 99% of those who say they are heredoing business are in actuality indulging in a minor diversion.Just something to occupy their mind when they find themselveswith a bit of spare time. Something to fill those few minuteswhen the commercials break into their favorite television show.Something to take their mind off the real work a day world. Ormaybe to fill that day during the week that the bingo hall isclosedWhat brought me to this conclusion, you may be asking yourself.Well, let me tell ya. This list of "How I Know It's Just ADiversion" items has been growing daily since 1995 when I tookmy first baby steps onto the Internet and into the WWW.The very first thing I noticed were, what have come to be called"Banner Farms". You know, those sites that consist entirely ofbanners. Usually in 5 or 6 different sizes laid out without theslightest consideration for aesthetics or even reason. You'llusually see about 30% of them are no longer attached to validURL's and you have little x's peppering the page.What disturbs me the most about these sites is that the owneris actually sitting around somewhere waiting for checks to startpouring in.The next thing that caught my eye and screamed, "DIVERSION" werethose sites in neon colored backgrounds with a font type andcolor that made the pages look like something my dog hadregurgitate after eating a box of crayon's. Have you ever goneinto a brick and mortar business and had the interior lights ofthe business burn out your retinas? How about the signs in typeso small you need a ladder to get up close enough to read them.No, you haven't, because they couldn't stay in business.How about the ones that ask you to trust them, but have an e-mail address that bounces, or a phone number that's beendisconnected. Even better than that the ones that have nocontact information at all!! ( actually these guys generallyreally are in business, the business of ripping people off )Then we get to the really well camouflaged diversions. These actually look like well run business sites. Well laid out, great use of color and design. Contact information everywhere, endorsements from all the best business organizations, even a picture of the owner. Wow! This must really be someone that's running a business on the internet. Wrong!! They just watch shows with longer commercials or have 2days a week without bingo. OH! you know the ones I mean. Theones that answer every e-mail with an auto responder. I've hadoccasion to carry on a conversation via e-mail 5 e-mails deepall from auto responder. Never was able to locate a human beingat that "BUSINESS"And then you have my very favorite, those that simply don'tbother answering e-mail at all. I haven't been able to put myfinger on what motivates these people. I do have it narroweddown to a few possibilities. One is that they just don't give adamn and can't be bothered. Another might be that they are sounfamiliar with their e-mail program that they're just not ableto jump over all the mental hurdle's associated with answeringan e-mail.Then we come to the one that I'm really leaning towards. Theyare just so busy making money hand over fist that answering e-mail ( even if it's just to say, got your e-mail, not interesteddon't bother me again ) just isn't in their business plan anylonger.I do have a hunch, that some of these folks have been soin undated with spam e-mail that they have turned their businessover to a small program called an e-mail filter. There's justone problem, that filter really, really can't tell thedifference between my legitimate business e-mail to you that forwhatever reason contains the word "greatest" and the spammer youblocked by adding that word to your filter.There are a great number of words in the english language thatcan be used in the subject lines and bodies of spammers e-mail.If your using any of them as filtering words, ( other than thebig 10 ) you are without a doubt blocking some of yourlegitimate business e-mail.I know I'm missing a great number of indicators that it's a"DIVERSION" not a business, so I'm open to your suggestions andwill include the best ones ( with proper credit given ) in mynext article on this subject titled "How WE Know It's Just ADiversion" Article Tags: It's Just
