My Response:

Wow, that's got to be one of the nicest spams I've ever received!

Nice try, but for some reason, spammers always make a few mistakes.

First I noticed in your note that in spite of being from 'yosemite', you could not spell it correctly. Fail #1. So, aside from this, I might have believed you, but ...

Then yosemitepark.net sounded a little fishy. Ah, I see they are a lodging establishment! Fail #2!

And finally kremp.com appears to be selling flowers. Fail #3!

So, "It's one! Two! Three strikes you're out! At the old Spam game!" Hahahahaha!

And don't bother to respond, I've blocked you.

And oh by the way, there is nothing about safety at that link! :D
