There was a time when people writes FAQ about net-etiquette… I’ve no longer see this FAQ nowadays.
The company former known as a Yahoo! developed its own blogging (Yahoo 360) platform as a response to the emerging and dominant Blogger. As a part of the new era in the company Yahoo 360 has disappeared, so, I received a mail for three times that I want to share as an example about how to deal kindly with a request.
Disclaimer: I don’t know who’s supporting Blogging.com and I’m no sponsored by them (and by nobody) but they deserved this note.
Remember, toujours la politesse.
I wanted to reach out to you one last time. Please see my previous email below, if I
don’t hear back from you, I’ll assume my suggestion isn’t of interest.
Thank you for your time, apologies if I’ve been a nuisance at all.

I appreciate you’re busy but I just wanted to follow up on the email I sent you the
other day; a copy is included below for reference.

I found a broken link Pere and thought you’d want to know.
You’ve got a link to Yahoo 360 (http://360.yahoo.com/) here on your site –
http://www.benavent.org/wp/page/24/ which is a defunct initiative that allowed you
to publish a blog on the Yahoo platform.
The URL just goes to the homepage now which isn’t all that useful if any of your
visitors are looking to start a blog.
Perhaps you could update your page and point people to Blogging.com? We have a handy
step-by-step guide to starting a blog which people might find useful –
I hope this helps.
