I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

SMI4motion – Ball Splines

It’s hard to write up blogs on things for companies that aren’t in the most popular industries without sounding like SPAM. It seems to me that it is easier to write about sports or pop culture and other things that are naturally popular just as it is easier to take in ads or have conversations about these topics. But that doesn’t mean that unpopular things need to be ignored in internet blogs and chopped up to unnecessary.

In fact blogging for SMI4motion.com has given me insight to a world I otherwise would not have ever experienced. Not often do we think of the parts that go into creating that machinery that our lives so often depend on. Factories and machines are made up of tons of tiny parts like ball splines and ball slides and support rails and guides, all things not seen by the naked eye but all the same very important.

Chalking their industry to annoying after thoughts like SPAM would be a great disservice.  

SPAM – Are We Asking For It?

This whole website is dedicated to complaining about how much  of a pain in the ass SPAM can be. Pop ups, hacked profiles, hidden links, and stuffed inboxes can get old really quick. I doubt there is anyone out there that would state that they love internet SPAM and its efforts. Even the people you create SPAM probably get bothered by it while surfing the web like anyone else. I still think the number one cause of computer viruses is internet SPAM but for real occurrences that severe are uncommon for the most part if you use common sense online the web.

You should know that filling out this forum and that contest will lead the SPAM directly towards you like blood to a shark fight. Yes, the side bar ads can be appealing and look like the easiest decision of your life but they’re made that way. It isn’t that hard to avoid the tell tale signs of internet SPAM.

Be safe surfers.

Blinky Spam

SPAM used to be an internet nightmare. Filling your screen, passing off viruses, and crashing your computer. Nothing was worst and it seemed every site was buying into. Now a days SPAM is often over looked by natural habit. We have trained ourselves not to acknowledge it, not to be bothered. Pop up blocks are the first line of defense, then SPAM folders and anti-virus soft wear, finally we just choose not to look to the side bars of webpages.

Yet SPAM is still out there, otherwise there would be no reason for this blog right? But why? Well to get websites more clicks and online traffic to sites I guess. But SPAMers are doing a lot more now to grab your attention. Some are coding SPAM to move passed the pop up blockers. Some have fabulous prizes such as free iPads and island get aways. The worst of all are the blinky SPAM. Ever seen one? It’s a worthless ad like any other SPAM but flashes and blinks bright usually surprising the user into clicking on the ad.

 

Oh My Spam – Post #400!

Welcome to ohmyspam.com’s post #400!

To celebrate I went out and bought some Spam and fried it up with some eggs this morning. Believe me the real thing is just as nasty as the internet version. I can’t believe Spam is still on the market. Is it a niche thing? Like are there a few pockets of the world that just love the shit? I never would have tried it to be honest if I wasn’t managing this blog, the thought of meat in a can kind of creeps me out – canned ham? No thanks.

I guess my conclusion is fitting for the site though. It’s all about internet SPAM that irritates online users and well the real thing urks me just as much. So what kind of SPAM irritates you? Leave a comment to let me know about SPAM that’s been getting to you. I’ll tell you what gets me is spammy comments in blogs though haha.

Well I’m glad to be here to post #400, hopefully I’ll see you around for #500!

Light Up Your Lawn

I guess there isn’t really much I can say about this email that I received, as there isn’t a lot of words. I mean, basically they are trying to sell “stylish” solar lighting options at “great prices.” They don’t say what any starting prices are or anything that might be useful. For all we know, the one shown isn’t even part of their collection. Even so, I do love solar lights in my yard. Oh, but the lights themselves aren’t the best part of this email.

To stop receiving “announcements,” or spam, I have to send a letter to these guys:

Adverpages
401 E. 8th St, Ste 214-603
Sioux Falls, SD 57103

Okay, sure. It seems like a legit business. But I mean, why would I have to send a letter to stop them from sending me email? It’s just another way to make sure it doesn’t happen. Now, to be completely removed from the list, I have to send yet another letter to this address:

My Kid Is The Best
729 9th Ave #126
Huntington, West Virginia 25701

I mean, come on. Seriously? That’s who I’m sending it to? And why are two things that should be associated located in such different places?

Vinyl Siding Estimate

Well, I received this image in my Gmail account today. It’s contents are about getting quotes and comparing contractors for vinyl siding. Now, the house that I currently reside in doesn’t have siding on it just because of the style of the residence. However, when I lived in town, we had blue vinyl siding on our house.

These pieces shown in the picture are pretty easy to put up and look really nice. Vinyl is the way to go for siding. It’s fairly cheap, easy to put up, and does not take much time. Most people that choose to put up siding don’t end up doing it themselves, but that is an option if you know what you are doing somewhat. Otherwise, as I said, it’s fairly cheap to put up this vinyl siding. Apparently, you can use this site to figure out which contractor and which price you will decide on.

Credit Scores

What’s your credit rating? I can be completely honest about this. I have absolutely no idea what my personal credit score is. I know that there are three different credit bureau’s, TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. However, I haven’t the slightest clue what my score is in any of them. I’ve never had a problem with my credit rating as far as I know, and I’ve never missed a payment or anything like that. However, that isn’t the case for everyone. Some people would love to know what their number is.
By visiting FreeCredit.com, you can see what your credit rating is. The rest of the ad reads that you can view all 3 of your scores for free with your Credit Score Complete trial membership. I have no idea of the costs or what the catch is, but let me be the one to tell you to be careful when dealing with places like this. They are there to make money, too, and not just help you out.

Netflix Free Trial

Today, I received an email that was about Netflix. As you know, Netflix recently switched from a combined service to split packages. One of their services offers unlimited streaming. The other service, the DVDs mailed to your home, was going to be renamed but was kept as Netflix. While before the two services were $7.99 a month together, they are now $7.99 each.

Start your Netflix 1 month FREE trial today and watch unlimited TV episodes & movies whenever you want. Your free trial really is free – cancel online anytime.

It’s a free trial, so you’ve got nothing to lose.
•   Instantly over the Internet
•   Watch right on your TV or computer
•   Start, pause and continue when you want
•   No ads or commercials

I can’t really check out the free trial, as I already have Netflix. I personally chose the unlimited streaming option, which is hooked up to my TV via my Xbox 360 console.

Blog Ads: Blog Blaster

Today, I received an email that was marked as spam by Google‘s Gmail filters. This email was from a service known as Blog Blaster, a service promising to make your ad spread all over the internet. Their method is completely “confidential,” and has apparently only been used once or twice.

Blog Blaster will take your ad and place it on “millions” of blogs on the internet. Then, you will receive hits to your website from those ads. Blog Blaster will even go a step further and only place your ad on blogs that match your ad’s category. If you have a music ad, it will be posted on blogs about music, increasing your traffic capability and expectations. Here is what the email contained:

We have developed a software that automatically
places your ad on millions of blogs.

You will receive thousands of targeted hits to
your website as Blog Blaster places your ad on
blogs that match your ad’s category.

This method has never been released to the public
before. Very few, if anyone has implemented this.
