Hey! Spammer, please give me a break

Friday July 25th, 2008 by fathersez

Last week I wrote about a spam artist who seemed to have dedicated his life to sending me spam comments.  

I have no idea why he chose me. He sends long incoherent comments, with links in every line of his essay. He also seems to have a busload of Gmail ID’s. 

On a whim, I tried looking up IP addresses and their locations. And found an excellent resource for this purpose.  It looks like my friend (who knows, maybe I’ll get to know him and we’ll become the best of pals) is from the city of Marlborough in the United Kingdom. 

Though I am not sure if I am interpreting the results correctly, it looks like my friend has been a pretty good boy in staying away from the more aggressive spam opponents. He seems to have managed to keep himself from being blacklisted. 

My Marlborough friend, I am all for automated ways to make money. In fact, I am trying my level best to find ways and means to earn money automatically myself.  But for the life of me, I cannot see how you can earn any money by sending me these spam comments which I delete. So why don’t you wise up. Find something else to do. Something else that will be more useful to people. (Perhaps we can even do something together.) 

And if by any chance, any of my UK readers know this guy, please tell him to take up another vocation.

That really is so annoying, especially because there isn’t a single thing that you can do about it, except delete. Don’t let him get the best of you. If your spending your time trying to track the joker down than he’s not only annoying, but he’s stealing your time. What a loser. Sorry.

Thanks, Dad.

Apparently I can list his IP address as a “persona non grata” in my blog and pffff..he is gone.

Hope I have seen the last of him. Thanks for the encouragement.

Cheers
