    I linked to your article about Spam’s 30th birthday, because I mentioned Gary Thuerk in a post on my blog. I will put you in my blogroll if you will give me a link somewhere. I am going through my blog and asking everyone I have linked to. As of now, most people I’ve referenced don’t even know I gave them a link.
