May I let my voice be a clarion call. I will use these words for justice. I will use these words for truth. And humour.

God damn the unethical people at

I got an email from a friend, asking me to verify him as a friend at a new social networking site, I replied positively, trusted them since they seem to have a genuine website with a real DNS (I even checked, and then within a minute, they'd sent out invitations to their site to EVERYONE in my email contacts list. If I'd gotten it from somebody I barely knew, it'd have been a tip off.

This blogger's story and this blogger's story tell my story almost to a T.

If you got an email from me, I am SO sorry. I didn't authorize them to send out invitation emails to ANYONE, and they mined my address book. I've done this with linked-in and google-associated sites, and not had a problem.

Sigh. Another social exploit, and a different version of phishing. I feel like such a sucker.

pax hominibus,
agape to all (even the people at, but not until after that bullsh1t scam they pull goes away),

Ah, well I only got 3 emails from them at 2 separate email addresses. :p

Anyway, yeah, it's this kind of thing that makes me lose faith in humans. Then I need to go spend some quality time with nice humans, so I can get the bad taste out of my mouth/mind. Grr.
