Well.. this should be interesting… Seems I may have an internet stalker..

Doesn’t it feel nice to be appreciated?

I know, right? I feel I shoudl bake a cake or something for the occasion.

But yeah, the guy is basically parroting what the others in his group have told him… ooh.. maybe I should point that out to him - that the conspiracy is on the other end he thinks it is…

Would love to go to this.

Alas, it only seems to be in LA. For now. It may expand, Who knows?

That looks like it would be pretty neat, Tah!  Ruby’s favorite game currently is Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker.  We need to find her another copy of it, but the ones that we’ve found so far are around $70.  gulp

When I hear people talk about Zelda
why do I always think of Terrahawks?

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Ugh.. nothing like coming in and finding the spammers have been busy.. Yay for cheap knockoff counterfeit products!

In my version of the internet, sending an email, or joining or posting to a forum requires a small micro-transaction - perhaps one-tenth of a cent. Easily paid for, even by the most destitute. Those with legitimate needs for sending out five thousand emails regularly (say, a company bulletin) could handle it within an intranet system to avoid fees. The trick being, that this would make wholesale spamming a monstrously unprofitable venture, and further give administrators another tool to block spammers by credit card.

Om nom nom… grin

Personally, I like not having to pay to join or post to a forum, even if it was a tiny amount.  I don’t like having recurring bills on my credit card.  But I can see where you’re coming from.  smile

Yeah, microtransactions do tend to clutter up the statements, don’t they..? Still, perhaps they could be consolidated - send all the info to a central repository. Something like PayPal, where they keep all the microtransactions in a nice list, then at the start of every month, they bill you a nickel or so. You could even pay in advance: one dollar would be enough for a year’s posting for most folks.

Another advantage would be that folks whose computers have been compromised as part of a botnet would have evidence of it, and have financial reason to put a stop to it.

Oooh… that raises another useful aspect: By making it financial, even on a minor scale, botnetting scammers can be charged for much more serious crimes. I LIKE the idea of some of these spammers having to spend jail time. smile

Speaking of spammers.. I see we have a new batch of the dubiously-profiled….
