Right, everyone knows that we at the Reg will do anything for money. Well almost anything. What we won't do is respond to the following kind of solicitation. Names have been removed to protect the guity from any kind of free publicity whatsoever:

I am running a Website to sell my music CD's.

The idea is that you can order the CD on the Website, we will post the CD with a stamped addressed envelope and trust the customer to post back the money. No Credit Card needed.

We opened the site on June 15th & sold 50 CD's in the first two weeks.

We are now making efforts to increase traffic on the site to sell more CD's

I was thinking you could do a story on www.theregister.co.uk saying how amazing and successful the site was & I could pay you money.

How much and can you do that?

Now, you see where this cheeky monkey went wrong? That's right, we don't do cash deals, and will only generate content if you sign up to our Reg Tariff 2001. You'll need a banker's reference, standing order and a lot more revenue than you're generating you little git.

Best of the rest
