That’s how it works online, too.
I got an e-mail the other day, which I am posting here for your perusal. Guy runs or represents a company that has a new App called Staance. It is a variation on social media, as I understand it. He explains that he has read and likes my stuff and is writing to “invite” me to be a “host” of their “#politics” channel, where I will be a”voice” that “drives” the “conversation” on a “fun” app.
Here is his initial e-mail, in full:

Which I asked about, as follows:
I’m not looking for “a cool new medium through which to spur debate” anymore than a guy who is, let us say, a bricklayer, is looking to build a “cool new wall” on someone else’s property, just for the sheer fun of doing so.
