"Meails": Email About ME

Seth Godin's post on Reed Elsevier's spam has a gem of a neologism: "meail", referring self-important marketing spam email which only cares about the sender, not the recipient.

No prior uses found with quick Google or Wikipedia searches. Nice metathesis, Seth!

Seth you know you've really made it (although I'm pretty sure you knew it a long time ago) when people even think that your typos are words of wisdow.... Can I just take ownership of the neologism teh - it refers to a time when a busy blogger forgets to spell-check their work...
