I must admit I am a hater

Yes, I hate, I hate.

I awoke...well, awoke is not the right word for it since I have been unable to sleep since 2 am...

I got up at 6 a.m. and opened up my bloglines to see a new blog I hadn't seen before.

"Hm." I thought. "I don't THINK I subscribed to a blog called Black Vibrator."

Bloglines spam. Assholes.

The part that pisses me off so much about spam and phishing is that they assume we will fall for it and that they prey on those mentally feeble or confused enough to do so.

Nice way to start a Sunday. I am going to go bang my head on the wall in the shower.

I'm a pacifist, but it might still be nice to jettison spammers over the Pacific...with water wings and canteens, of course. Swimming to Asia or North America would keep them preoccupied for a good long time and keep them far from decent people's lives.

Red Alert, Suebob!

When one clicks on your "Granny Gets a Vibrator" link, it takes one to Black Vibrator!!!!

Beware!!!!

Computer alert!

BA-ROOOOOO-GAH!!!!

Amanda said...

I think Granny got run over by a porn site, unfortunately. Same thing was in my bloglines today...

Eden said...

Yes, I clicked from your "Granny Gets A Vibrator" link I was taken take to the aforementioned Black Vibrator site. Ugh.

Thanks for the alert everyone. I changed my template and removed Granny.

Poor Granny. She gets a lymphoma diagnosis, has a fight with her BF AND gets her blog hijacked, all in one week? Terrible.

no bloglines for me. they make me violent when I get spam. :P

SUEB0B said...

Amanda - "Granny got run over"...you are too funny.

Christina said...

You can get spam on bloglines? I had been thinking of using it, but now I'm less likely. Ugh.

Elizabeth said...

I had no idea you could get spammed on Bloglines! That is just wrong.

"Granny Gets a Vibrator" doesn't seem to exist on Blogger anymore. I wanted to go there and give her a big blog hug. Let me know if she starts a new one somewhere else, okay?

Hmm .. my into to your blog, my first reading.

Too funny - saved to bloglines for further updates.

;)

what the fuck is bloglines spam and phishing? And clearly I would fall for it since I don't know what it looks like and haven't ever got any. you know too much blogging info and I am a peon in your shadow..

Is shower-wall banging some sort of variant sex? Is there a blog devoted to that? How can I learn more?

SUEB0B said...

I assumed it was a new way of getting spam, since this weird blog appeared in mu bloglines. I guess what really happened was that when Granny's blog was transmogrified into this Bad Blog, it also was switched to the Bad Blog in my Bloglines.

At 6:20 yesterday morning, that did not occur to me. I assumed that someone had figured a way to dump new blogs into my Bloglines (which is probably something that will happen in the near future if I know spammers).

Gandhi - Bloglines is a way to make a list of blogs so you automatically know whenever they update, which is pretty cool.

NWO - I can hardly wait to see the keyword searches on both shower banging AND vibrators...

H&B - thanks for stopping by and for bookmarking! Blushing.
