I received the following e-mail today from firstname.lastname@example.org:
hello jason orendorff,
If you don't mind me asking are you a programer by profession? I noticed Microsoft has new Visual programming products, it is hyped for easier, quicker, more affordable programing, are you familiar with it? http://msdn.microsoft.com/developercenters/ http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/products/
Do you freelance (independently write, produce, or make) any desktop programs for Windows 98, XP? Or Mac?
The question is, is this spam?
