Um, Dang. If you have that much to say, Michael, why not start your own blog instead of posting a 3,294 word "comment" here on a 465 word post?

I'm not knocking the apparent shadiness of this, but at a whopping 355 views this video has hardly "gone viral." It may yet. But I'm thinking you meant is was just posted on YouTube.

Yet another reminder to keep in mind the Law of Online Perpetuation: Internet content will persist in direct relation to how embarrassing it is to you irregardless of your efforts to remove it, so don’t be stupid.

Some folks consider autoresponders to be good marketing. They do work well in email marketing, for example.

However I totally agree with you that when it comes to social media, autoresponders completely miss the point. I wrote a post to that effect a couple weeks back that stimulated a lively discussion. One of the owners of an autoresponder service for Twitter said his service

"is about convenience and saving time. Nothing more and nothing less.

What difference does it make whether I welcome my followers via a hand-crafted message, or via an automated message?

The point is: I decided that I appreciate new followers enough to want to welcome them. It does not mean I want to or am going to automate all my interaction with them."

I don't agree with him, but I guess that explains their mindset. Sort of.
