Every few days I glance through my e-mail spam folder, because while it works really well (I rarely ever have something show up in my inbox, Google Mail is awesome that way…) sometimes it catches things that aren’t really spam (like…questions about classes at MQResource…)
Today, I was really disappointed to see that it had marked this one as spam:

Cause it’s totally true, right? I’m totally that amazing and worthy of this achievement? My professional community would be proud to be represented by me, right?
I especially like how the word “APPROVED” is in italics, as if it makes it that more important.
Yeah. Right. It was worth a good laugh, anyway.
