    Anyone know what this is?

    Postby Omphalos » 27 Dec 2010 17:54

    All of a sudden sites just like this one keep posting trackbacks on my book review site. Cannot tell what this is all about. Is it a google adword thing? Should I be deleting these comments as spam? Ive gotten a ton of them over the last few weeks.

    No idea what it was, but the spammers have been busy lately. I probably deleted 30 spam comments on the blog yesterday. (And my blog doesn't get that much daily traffic. So image what the big blogs must have to deal with! :shock: )

    I cleaned out about 10 before logging in here this morning and just checked and found two new ones, from "Yixing teapots" and "English Teacher Online".

    A couple of months back the ploy was to insult the blogger and try to get into an argument. Lately they've gone back to flattery: "I genuinely loved reading your post. Thanks!" and "Neat blog layout! Very easy on the eyes.. i like the colors you picked out."

    I am shocked that so many of them still write in Engrish. Ypu would think that by now some enterprising students would ghost some passable messages for them to post.

    True. And it gets them just as nowhere as abuse. ;)

    30 days w/o an orgasm ?

    shit ... I done gone ALOT longer than that ....

    hell, I've gone more'n thirty days w/o thinking about fixing to try to think about an erection ....


    but yeah .... I guess that changed my life ....

    but hey, now, Calvin Woon & the "IM Buzz" type of thing is not really snake-oil .... I think it would be possible
    to turn a profit using the schemes and "tools" he provides ... it's just that >>>

    1) we're talking fractions of pennies per click from ad-revenue, and that's just a shitload of work, without having
    Thai sex slaves in the backroom pounding on keyboards 24/7

    &

    2) again, there is no "PRODUCTION" or "SERVICE" here ... the point is to get "eyes-on-page" by Whatever Means Necessary ... the poor honest
    dumbass Innerwebz User is not swindled out of money (unless they sign up for Calvin's "Webinars"), but they are swindled out of time and effort
    if they were searching for "information" (remember that? purpose of the "Net"? the "Information Highway" ?) and ended up on a "BlahgBuzz" fake
    page w/ no real content, or meaningless Engrish content stolen and ran thru the "ArticleBuzz" software (which you can buy & "rebrand" and sell !!)

    the "ad agency" that sells the ads for the Buzzed-up page isn't out anything, either - they're paying out a fraction of what they charged the "client" -
    now THOSE folks are getting screwed, because the likelihood of getting a sale out of a Buzz-click is probably pretty fucking thin, but then, there
    is always the Ten Thousand Monkeys and a Typewriter theory .... which explains 99% of the SciFi Innernetz Authors, but I digress ...

    and the "clients" don't really give a damn either, I don't think ... they're ad-pushers for some other conglomerate of Sneaky Corporate Bastards
    who have a big-ass Ad Budget to spend, and placing tens of thousands of "web-ads" looks good on the Quarterlies ... never mind where they
    were placed or how effective they are ....

    but, again ... (and again)(& again)(&etc) my main Bitch is that Calvin Woon and His Ilk are the people responsible for destroying the "trust" in the
    "Information" on the net ... altho, they of course did not invent lying & deception & cheating folks out of a dime at every turn (that was the
    Jews, right Chiggie ?) and while they are not the total-sum "cause" of this Societal Infection, they are Agents ...

    they say - ahhhwww, we just playin' system YOU built ! You no can blame us ! We take advantage of opportunity presented ! It Legal !!

    and that's what the Accounting Cocksuckers on Wall Street told the Federal Congress,
    as the Federal Reserve Banking System was (literally) printing One Million Dollar Bills to keep the corporate banks' doors open,
    cutting the heads off chickens and praying to the little baby jesus that the whole thing wouldn't just fucking collapse and the
    Angry Citizens wouldn't come with torches and pitchforks and Burn the MotherFucker Down .....

    Here's an example or two of the stuff I found in the spam comments on the blog this morning:

    Bree wrote:I was reading through some of your posts on this website and I think this website is very informative ! Continue putting up.

    Sure thing, Cheese Girl, as long as you start putting out. ;)

    The ones I hate are the really lame questions that anyone actually looking at the blog would KNOW the answers to. Like

    learn Spanish fast wrote:I found this site under my bookmarks, probably bookmarked it my wife. Do you have a rss or something like this? I want to add you to my rss reader, becous liked this article especially your way how to explain this.

    Graphic w/link at bottom of the page. Or links in the "Subscribe" section of the right column stuff. :roll:
    how to get rid of moobs wrote:We love your site theme can you tell me the name of it or where you downloaded it? thanks.

    Ibid. Bottom of the page. :roll: (I noticed quite sadly a couple of weeks ago that the designer of the theme has decided to shut down her site for economic reasons. :( I use two of her themes on the HToD blogs. KJA uses one on his, too. Note though that the right column is not fucked up on either of my blogs. :snooty: :dance: )

    However, the best spammer name out of the 17 comments this morning has to be...

    oral pissing :shock:

    Who was advertising site: peeing movies dot net. :lol: (Urophilia... it really does mean you like things you're a' peein'.)

    11:30 AM and I'm still just on my first jumbo cup of high-oct coffee! :dance:

    Don't have to be back in the office until January 6th. :dance:

    Currently writing/programming a PHP webpage to automatically conjugate Fremen verbs. :dance:

    Hoping to finish the Winds synopsis and get the ones for the Legends books started. :think: :pray:

    I was using that one KJA uses at my Law & Science Fiction blog before KJA started using it too. Almost made me take it down. Would have done so had it not been so damn cool.

    Yeah, Mina did good work. It's too bad she didn't make enough from donations to keep her site going. :(

    I've tweaked the themes I'm using for the blogs, but every time an update becomes available I wonder if it's going to break something and I won't be able to fix it. :?
