Cheap labor in India

cheap labor

Now the Indians get into the manual spam business. Posts one spam comment, gets deleted, tries another one, same thing, repeat two more times. Have the ISP blocked on vowe.net. Bye bye, Bharti Tele-Ventures Limited.

Comments

I can't stop thinking "what is the point in doing that?". I understand comment spam with a ton of URLs pointing to garbage, but what is the point of promoting ABC? Does the TV giant pay the Indian comment-spammers? Doubtful.

Anyway; spam (of all kinds) is really starting (hah!) to get out of hand.

Sorry: just noticed that the ABC bit isn't the whole truth; hadn't studied the screen shot carefully enough. :-(

Anyone selled something in ebay recently? I have and I got > 20 so called "comments or questions" about the items I wanted to sell. Two of them were real question, the rest is spam (mostly offers from china) - a question of time, till ebay has to install a spam filter or change the general terms and conditions...

How big is the fanclub in India that won't enjoy vowe anymore?
Why not - instead of blocking the whole ISP load the comment subform selectivly? So blacklisted ISP can read but not post.

Well, I just look at what people from that ISP do to vowe.net, and then I decide how I want to deal with it. So far I have found that l did not want to deal with these people.
