Comment spam is a pain in the ass. If you’re a blogger, you’ll know yourself how much fun it is to clean up spammy comments left by companies desperate to shill their services.
It’s not just restricted to blogs, mind you. Emails, Facebook Pages, Twitter direct messages, etc – all a lively source of some of the crappiest and most blatant spamming approaches around.
So I thought it might be nice to share the spammers with you on a semi-regular basis. It might be a comment left on this blog, or an email I receive, or a lovely Facebook spammer (something I’ve written about before). Highlight the companies that still think spamming is a great idea.
The first one up is Ad2Me, a company so inventive they’re “taking the social media world by storm”. Even though their service is based on mobile phone texts – one of the leading social media platforms…
They left a comment on my post about social media bridges – I guess they thought the relevance was in their use of the words “social media” and the way they’re going to take that world by storm. Well, I guess another spammer is exactly what social media needs to take the world by storm…
Anyhoo. Crabby post? Maybe? Fed up of spammers? Always. Showing who they are so you can choose whether you deal with them or not? Up to you.
As for Ad2Me? Well, my thoughts on spammers are below.
Oh, and if you want to share examples of the spammers that you feel should be highlighted for their “sterling efforts”, feel free to send them to me – always happy to share your good stuff too!
