Silicon India’s networking ploys

Silicon India spammingSo your newly launched social network couldn’t garner any notice from any quarter? You tried spamming those millions of mail IDs you grabbed for few dollars from Tanzania. You even spent a fortune on PR and lured some blogger friends to sing praises for you. But it didn’t work. Your network still is just another of those zillions of networks that have mushroomed around, and its nowhere near becoming famous, ever. And then it strikes you. And you try to entice me by sending invites from good looking (so they think) girls? Hmmm! How low can you go pal?

How to benefit from an assasination!

If you were tired of those emails from widows of Nigerian tribal kings promising quick fortune, here is one that landed in my Inbox that can help you benefit from an assassination:

I am Nahid Khan the personal assistant to the late two time prime minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto. I am assume you are aware of the sad event that occurred during our campaign in the month of December last year when Benazir Bhutto was assassinated, I am not writing you to discuss the former prime minister’s assassinations but to lay a proposal that will benefit you and I.Please if you are interested email me at my personal email address : NahidatGvt@hotmail.com I will go into details as soon as i have your response.

With great anticipation I await your response.

Ingenious! And and we thought only Mr ’10 percent’ Zardari benefited cent percent from this 😉

BlogAdda or Spammers Adda?

The new so-called blog platform (though I prefer to call them Blog Leechers since they are resorting to all sort of gimmicks to just get footage, such as showing your blog under frame pages, showing your feed content as their own and so on) BlogAdda has surely gained attention but not due to its content or any novel features (it has got none, anyways, Instablogs should have taught them lessons) but because of their staff let loose on a spamming spree. The BlogAdda people have been adamantly spamming all sort of blogs in English as well Hindi Blogosphere, the intention is probably not so much to promote their product but as an SEO noted at Chandroo’s blog, to gain undeserved Google rank. First, it was the notorious Deepanjali, who even created a fake Marathi blog to pose as a fellow blogger and left poetic Hindi comments on almost all gullible blogs and now Kirans and Adityas have taken over. To pose as bloggers these guys have created fake Blogger accounts so they don’t have to comment anonymously, since many, if not most, Blogger.com users don’t allow anonymous comments.

Tired of their spamming on all my sites, in September 2007, I had written to BlogAdda through their website that they should stop this gimmick Continue reading “BlogAdda or Spammers Adda?”
