Not even invited

Both “Cheryl” and “Amy,” each identifying herself as the Editorial Manager of, requested a guest-post slot here in almost identical words:

I hope you do not mind me mailing you but I would like to introduce myself.

My name is [name] and I am currently working hard to establish myself as a freelance writer. I have now written for several websites on varying topics and my articles have been well received.

The one real difference between the two is that Amy has an idea for a topic:

I am particularly interested in writing an article focusing on wild foul, and would love to discuss specifies with you. I am a keen hobbyist and can also suggest other topics if the first one doesn’t suit.

Not, however, a keen speller.

    If she writes something wildly foul, perhaps it would be of interest.

    Good point. Maybe she’ll write back? (I trashed the originals for, well, being trash.)

    That was a foul bit of spelling. If she can find one, maybe she could write about a spelling bee.
