    Job Offers in email…

    by  • 3/14/2005 • life, spam • 0 Comments

    Wouldn’t anybody love to recieve an email like this, offering you work? I mean, let’s ignore for a second that it’s addressed to someone named “Rebecca” and the agent can’t spell or write in any way that would indicate they know your language at all… Do you want to find good, highly paid ( a […]

    No Phishing Allowed

    by  • 1/26/2005 • life, spam • 0 Comments

    I haven’t noticed this little banner that GMail has been adding to obvious phishing emails, most likely because I don’t bother opening them other than out of curiosity; if the phishers have improved their spelling skills or if they’ve at least tried harder to convince me. I mean, they really haven’t been trying very hard […]

    FreeiPodShuffle.com messes up?

    by  • 1/25/2005 • geek, spam • 0 Comments

    Interesting email today… I was credited for completing an offer for the “FreeiPodShuffle.com” site. I didn’t complete anything; as far as I can tell, all of the offers require credit card information, and I never entered any. I didn’t put in real information, but I recieved credit…. So, on the theory that you don’t have […]

    Interesting Trackback Development…

    by  • 1/19/2005 • geek, spam • 0 Comments

    There may be something bad in my version of Spam Karma that’s been screwing with my trackbacks. I had version 1.7 of SK installed, and had one or two tiny little glitches with moderator-approved comments not working as expected once they were moderated, also a couple trackback issues that I never thought to attribute to […]

    I’m apathetic about nofollow…

    by  • 1/19/2005 • geek, spam • 2 Comments

    I have long since taken care of the comment spam problem here on the bankrupt artist, and the google implementation of nofollow is questionable at best. I see many spiders that don’t represent the big search engines, and some that identify as nothing exceptional, or masquerade as just another browser. Sure, that browser is requesting […]

    Referrer Spam

    by  • 1/18/2005 • geek, spam • 1 Comment

    I was taking a look at my server logs today, and was really sick of watching the bad referrers scrolling up the screen, so I finally did something about that… I found a great starting point for htaccess patterns at Aaron’s site; RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^(http://)?(www\.)?.*(-|.)poker(-|.).*$ [NC,OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^(http://)?(www\.)?.*(-|.)porn(-|.).*$ [NC,OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^(http://)?(www\.)?.*(-|.)prozac(-|.).*$ [NC,OR] It’s […]

    Order your high explosives now…

    by  • 11/12/2004 • life, spam • 1 Comment

    Best spam caught in my spam trap yet. They sell C4 and rocket launchers, but they’ll only sell them to people who are 18 or older. That’s mighty responsible. The only thing that I can think of with this is that it’s an FBI sting operation, and this is what they’ve resorted to in order […]
