Spammers: Got To Love Them!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 20, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Most of the spam I receive, and delete without a second thought, on this blog – and through my mail account – tends to be either nothing but links without explanation, or an attempt to sell me something – a commodity or service – which no one in their right mind needs. Now and then, […]

Playing On The Gullibility Of The Masses

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 17, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Another two attempts to defraud or infect have come my way this week. They may well be ones which are already well-known to some, but such warnings bear repeating time and time again: there is always someone prepared to buy London Bridge. This first is a clear case of attempted Identity Theft as well as […]

Spam: Attention Seekers Stating The Obvious

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 10, 2016 in Internet |

As every day I went through my collection of caught spam this afternoon, just in case Akismet had rejected something which should have been allowed. As usual, there was nothing which I wanted to read or have published here which supports the following: Photo Source: Will Lion under a Creative Commons license. Admittedly, I haven’t […]

Spam: Fooling Around With Reality

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 3, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

We have been warned. It’s fair to say that the warnings have been almost continuous throughout the history of the Internet, and probably even longer. Scams, fraud, things that are almost too good to be true, bridges for sale, lotteries we didn’t enter and still won, millions of dollars hidden in bank accounts in Nigeria. […]

My All-Time Favorite Spammer Web Sites

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 14, 2016 in Internet |

Is it possible to have one favorite website amongst the millions on the Internet today? And, can you imagine having a favorite spammer website? The first question is easy enough to answer, since we all have our favorites which we regularly visit and, now and then, recommend to other people. The second is, perhaps, not […]

Listings: There Is A Simple Answer

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 23, 2016 in Internet |

I probably shouldn’t write this, because as soon as I hit publish all hell will break loose, but I haven’t been receiving much spam lately. This is, of course, a good thing and something which I am grateful for, something which I do not really want to change, even though I do not, personally, have […]

Make Your Content Go Viral!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 12, 2016 in Internet |

Another new turn in the Internet rankings, spam saga: an offer to make my blog go viral! And that, the spam claims, with just initial traffic, as if this blog wasn’t several years old but just starting out and I, an old hand now, brand new on the scene. I must admit, I find all […]

Spam: Another Fitting Comment On Stupidity

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 5, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Sometimes I would love to be able to laugh out loud at people, or whatever it is that decides where to post a spam comment. I appreciate that they honestly believe they are selling themselves well, thinking up all these wonderful entries which, in most cases, have no relation to the post concerned whatsoever, but […]

Yet Another Spam Failure

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 15, 2015 in Internet |

Now and then I get spam, when ‘now and then’ is every few minutes, which is automatically cast into the trash so that I don’t need to worry about it. Looking through the figures which WordPress so kindly supplies, I see that Akismet has dealt with over five hundred and forty thousand items of spam […]

Twitter: Opening The Floodgates For Spam

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 13, 2015 in Internet |

There was a time when I was dismayed Twitter only allowed followers to send personal or direct messages. There were plenty of things I wanted to communicate to this or the other person in private, without having to publish my thoughts for the entire Twitter world to see. Then came the opening: direct messages may […]
