Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

All quiet on the spammer front

Published: Wednesday 2004-01-21.

I have received a several pieces of e-mail lately about people not listed on my page of Swedish spammers. I only publish spam mail I have received myself on that page, I do not list submissions. The question is thus, why have I not seen the letters? Is it that the spammers have found their way here and figured out that it would be foolish to send their messages to me? Or is that ascribing too much intelligence to the blockheads? No matter what it is nice not having received things like this:

If it is a fact that the spammers have washed my addresses off their lists due to my web site, I have to say that that is very nice, then it at least has served one of its purposes – to decrease the amount of junk that I receive. The problem is of course that it has not served its main purpose: to decrease the amount of junk that is sent, no matter the recipient.

Som jag skrivit på annat ställe registrerade jag ett gratis bildbehandlingsprogram för några veckor sedan, och skulle i gengäld få nyhetsbrev från företaget och dess relaterade annonsörer. Dagen därpå fick jag första "nyhetsbrevet", dvs reklam. Inte så mycket att säga om det, förutom att det jag uppmanades köpa var små kylskåp. Bildbehandlingsprogram - kylskåp. Det verkar vara riktad marknadsföring. Nu har det inte rasslat in något mer sådant brev på snart två veckor.

Jag vet inte riktigt varför jag fått så mycket uppmärksamhet på mina sidor. Kanske för att den kommer såpass högt upp på Google, så att den är lätt att hitta. Jag har sett referenser till min information från olika väbbforum, så sidorna är kända.

Dessutom, eftersom mina sidor är rankade högt av Google så kommer jag högt upp i träfflistan för de företag jag har listade...
