Both Luke have mentioned a new site called blogspam.org, an anti-spam blog that seems to be spamming other blogs to get attention, even though it’s still under construction. The messages are either emails or comment spams, written in a very generic and templated style. Now I haven’t yet got one but the guy behind this certainly needs his head examining.
In the same vein, I got an unsolicited email today advertising an anti-spam tool. This is while the FTC are suing a company that is spamming people to advertise an anti-spam tool via the Windows Messaging Subsystem (not MSN Messenger). According to the FTC:
The defendants created the problem that they proposed to solve-for a fee. Their pop-up spam wasted computer users’ time and caused them needless frustration.
Can’t agree more. This is sheer hypocrisy.
