GoogleIt Mail IT Print IT PermaLinkA Little Revenge On An Email Address Abuser
04:25:01 PM

In the last few days, I've been notified of creation of Friendster and Xanga sites using my email address. It has happened before, and it will happen again -- due to the simplicity of my address and the fact that it seems like it could belong to a high school.

In the past, I've managed to get those pages deleted -- but I figured that doing this (see below) would take no more time. It may not do any good as a deterrent to others, but it gives me a bit of a sense of satisfaction anyhow.

God I hope that's not an April Fool's joke. Priceless.

It would be a good April Fools post, come to think of it... But it's not a joke. I forgot to post the link with the proof. Here it is:

Considering what happened to McCain's MySpace page, I think you were merciful.

(Whoever created it used an image from another site. The owner modified the image to say he supported gay marriage - especially between two passionate females)

Time for an SPF record on your DNS for your domain ?

@4 Bill: People who use my domain as their "fake" address for web registrations generally aren't spoofing sent mail, so I don't see how SPF would help.

Dude, that's SO funny!!!

Remember when I said that Chris Sligh went to my college? Well here's an even bigger alumnus from when it was a juco in 64:

Yes sir, the Director of National Intelligence went to my college...

Good job Rich, it makes the bogus owner of the site do the work of getting it taken down so you don't have to.

Hehe - good on ya! I would have waited a month or two until they had more content there, then you coud have had even more fun!
