Let’s discuss about it!

More spam from Steve Blackmon arrived today. Delightful. If you got a similar message to this, it is 100% spam.

SIDEBAR – interestingly, people actually looking up the phrase “discuss about it” are landing here, I think looking for grammatical advice. Those people, “let’s discuss about it!” is (basically) “wrong” grammatically speaking, because “discuss” itself means to talk about something, rendering the word “about” in this phrase redundant. “Let’s discuss it!” would be sufficient. Don’t Repeat Yourself. DRY.

In any case, the spam had this grammatically incorrect title is copied in below. Because I for some reason decided to publish these here spams… perhaps because they get past my spam filter.
