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".
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!
