Blog Spam….maybe?

I’m not sure what to think of this:

Hi,
I was just browsing the ‘net and found your Quake 4-related blog entry: http://sidekickca.livejournal.com/77546.html
and I think you may be of some help to me. I’m reaching out to you on behalf
of Microsoft, MEC, and M80 regarding the release of Gears of War for the Xbox
360.   Since you blogged about Quake 4, I thought that you might be interested
in posting the press release or a review of the game, Gears of War, on your blog?
You seem like a reputable influencer, so I think you’d be a big help to us. For
your help or review, I would be happy to send you a copy of Gears of War.
Please let me know if you’re interested!
Thanks!
Nico, M80

First, I don’t own a system capable of running Gears of War.
But I’m not sure that this is spam…M80 is a real company, I just don’t know if Nico works for them…
I’ll see if he’s also willing to send me an XBox ^_^

    Well, reputable influencers like you are allowed, nay, entitled! to whatever free swag dumb marketing companies are foisting on you.

    Of course, you know they’re gonna sell your address to everyone who’ll take it. But hey! Swag!

    Besides that, even if they were legit, how did he assume that my problems with Quake 4 *on linux* had anything to do with a game only available on the 360?

    Thems is some dumb bots!
