Free EBook Spam from Anonymous

Checking my comments today from Astrology Talk, there were several postings from an "Anonymous" source. It was "Get my free ebook" spam in the comments.

These comments have since been deleted, and I will continue to delete all spam comments. So much for blog etiquette.

Here is my email to the culprit, 123 Astrology, Blair Gorman from Christchurch, New Zealand. The site actually is one of the one pagers designed to lure you into a purchase. It has no information other than solicitation. You can get a free "trial" reading, leading to a paid reading, but you must sign up for the reading in order to get the "Free eBook".

Blair,

You posted two comments on my blog, Astrology Talk, soliciting business for your eBook. You contributed nothing to my readers, but only made an attempt at gaining downloads and birth details to solicit business. In my opinion, your methods are dubious and swarmy, both on the method of driving business and in the misleading way in which your site garners information in the process of receiving your "Free eBook".

Interesting enough, the bottom of your site states "Words cannot express my dislike for spam." So why spam a blog?

Thanks for not doing it again.


If you have a site that you feel is beneficial for the readers and applicable to the post, feel free to share it. I only ask that it is not a site that holds no information, but is only a forum for generating income from sales. I want you, my readers, to know that I care about you. I personally find it irritating when a site claims to be an "expert resource", but only sells readings, either by mail, email or phone. If you have such a site, contact me and I will review it.

If I wanted Astrology Talk to be a forum for sales of horoscopes, then I would sell my own here and the focus of the blog would be muddied.

Let the information flow! ... But leave the spam in the cupboard!

Thank you for posting this as it may have saved me money. I recieved an email offering a numerology reading from Gorman and decided to do a search to see if he was the expert he claimed. Thanks to your blog I know to save my money.

Hi Susan,

I am glad this post helped. Mr. Gorman did email me back (a month later). It seems he is part of an affiliate network, and this was posted by one of the affiliates. Even so, I believe when you put your name on something, that's your reputation.

For Numerology readings, I would suggest hans Decoz. I know him and his readings personally, and he has been a top Numerologist for a long time. Here is his site, if you are interested http://www.decoz.com/

Good for you! I am so glad to see bloggers standing up for the integrity of their blogs.

I am new to blogging, and still learning the ropes, so your post has given me courage.

You wouldn't happen to be the same C.T. that has a LinkedIn profile stating you work in P. Or.? If so, please add me to your network. I am also from there, and have now "found you" twice. It must be fate.

Nice to almost "meet" you, grins!

Hi Stukie,

Thanks for the feedback! And yes, I am the same one from LinkedIn. Glad to meet another Portland-ite!

By looking at your LinkedIn profile, it looks like we have a lot in common. My background is film/theatre/TV and I went to college at Colorado State.

Send me your email address so I can add you to LinkedIn. Or, you can add me. My email is velvetridge@gmail.com.
