Things That You Just KNOW Ain't Gonna Happen

I received an interesting email from a database vendor this morning. Shortly afterword I received another from the same vendor that said this:

Dear Thomas

I believe you received this communication in error. I would kindly ask that you delete it immediately.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I hadn't exactly scrutinized the original email, but you can be damn sure I went back and read it after I got that second one.

(Did you really think I would just blithely delete it? Please.)

It was all pretty positive and interesting stuff. I look forward to them releasing it publicly.

Reverse psychology is alive and well... You can bet that second email was designed to manipulate you into going back and not only re-read the original, but to intensely focus your mental resources to try and understand why they wished you to delete it. Oldest trick in the book - Called "Magician's Force". Everything old is new again!
