OMG I get soooo much spam saying they secretly installed recording software while I was on a “very naughty website” and they’ll release the video unless I pay up. I used to respond with “oh man we’ll make millions! I’ve been looking for a distribution channel for all the home-made porn I produce. I’ve got the content, you’ve got a huge distribution channel!”
