    Just so you know if he hadn't used a mailing service and sent this via his personal email client I wouldn't have reported this message. Instead he gives my email address to third party company that does god knows what with emails they are "given".

    Hi Bill,

    I am writing to see if you would be willing to try out our related posts pl=
    ugin. The plugin was released in July, and is running on around 700 sites n=
    ow. It allows for choosing thumbnail size, setting relevancy, and displayi=
    ng related articles from sites on your blogroll. Would love to get your fee=
    dback.

    It looks like http://www.clarksvilleonline.com is running self-hosted WordP=
    ress, so installing (or uninstalling should you decide it is not for you=
    =21) should be pretty easy.

    More info is here, in the WordPress Plugin Directory: http://wordpress.org=
    /extend/plugins/nrelate-related-content/screenshots/

    Thanks,

    Oliver

    A client of mine got the same yesterday. It is pretty rare to get spam-like emails about various WP plugins, especially those featured on the official site.

    Hey guys,

    I emailed you bl968, and Bjorn, one of your clients as well. I really am not trying to be Spammy, or to email blast a ton of people or anything. I actually send out a very small number of emails every day, and hope that people will write me back so that I can help them with their sites.

    That's all I got, happy to continue discussing.

    Oliver
