Rant - Porno Spam. Might offend some.

All right...Twice in one day, I've received the same porno spam from two different email addresses. I have forwarded them to Yahoo Customer Care and blocked my address from them. These were actually rather tame ads. At least they weren't advertising any underage participants.

They did, though, try to be cute by implying that the emails were in response to a feedback form that I had submitted. Bullsh-t.

Is there anyone on this planet who can explain to me how any advertiser of this kind of thing can be so stupid as to send his ads out indiscriminately?

I worked for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for ten years, some of which were spent working with sex offenders. Now, I was a secretary, but I might very well have been a parole officer or some other kind of investigative agent.

But these porno spammers don't know that. They just send this crap out to people they haven't vetted, and, for all they know, could include FBI agents, law enforcement officers, or simply private citizens who take umbrage at receiving pornographic spam. Any one of these people, with adequate knowledge of DNS servers and documentation, could shut them down and get them sent to prison--especially the creeps who send out child pornography ads over the Internet.

Why do these spammers advertise like this???! They're just begging to get arrested.

Now, if I were going to provide porn over the Internet, I would:

  1. Use only adult models.
  2. State this fact clearly on my website and in my ads.
  3. Have a contractual agreement with my models, allowing me to display their photographs.
  4. Advertise only in adult chatrooms or mailing lists, to people who appeared interested, and allow the news to spread discreetly, by word of mouth. I would not just send my ads out to God and everybody over the Internet and pray that the police wouldn't come knocking on my door some night.

Criminals are not the smartest people in the world. I know this for a fact, having worked with them. But, by God, I would think they'd at least have a minimal sense of self-preservations!

Is there any sort of law that prohibits the sending of unsolicited prnography ads across the Internet, whether they be of adults or children?

If there isn't, I would sure be interested in working out some legislation to enact one.

Hi. Popped over from quietlyurban's LJ as saw you'd commented on her last entry.

What can I say except nod in full agreement. I hate unsolicited spam with a passion with extra for the porn type.

Not sure what legislation is in place though our Daily Mail paper did have an article the other day on fact that technology exists to exert more pressure to eliminate spam of all types but 'big business' unwilling to sign up and a certain laziness prevails about it.

Re: Agree..

Nimue! ::delighted look:: Thank you so much for commenting. I probably hsouldn't vent in LJ, but that pornography spam issue has me so angry right now, I could spit nails. After I wrote my previous entry, I received another piece of spam, which was even worse--they included photographs.

I'm not willing to take this sitting down, anymore; I'm looking for activist groups. I can't just allow myself to be angered by this sort of thing and not do anything about it.

I visited your user profile page today and enjoyed it very much! I didn't realize it was possible to add things to that page. I look forward to reading your Caer Sidi LJ.

Hope to see you later in Hogwarts. :)

Re: Agree..

:-)! Simon!

I'll add you to my LJ friends. The majority of my entries are 'friends only'.

Nimue (and Sarah) does have her own LJ though I haven't been posting that often to her or the other characters of late. musesong has the links in user-profile.

On issue of spam porn there must be activist groups and I agree re the need to do something rather than just allow yourself to be angered.

Re: Agree..

Vivienne--I should do up an LJ for Simon, just for the heck of it. He comes out with some rather funny lines, sometimes. I've read a bit of Nathaniel's LJ, which is interesting, and I also read a bit in Anders'.

Of course, if I did that, I'd be tempted to do an LJ for my Pernese healer character Aerden, at the very least, and maybe my evil priest Tarran, and...And then, I would never get any actual story writing done. (g)

Darn! Always, there's that 'actual story writing' issue that gets in the way of frivolity....

See you later!


If it makes you feel better, my poor Pernese Online hotmail account got the "see teenage farmgirl and her horse" porn mail yesterday. YUCK! I hate porn spam. :: grumbles ::

Re: Horses

Kel--Farmgirl and Horse...Geeze! And I thought Quantum Leap slash fiction was bad...(That's from the con where I looked at those zines and thought to myself, Is nothing sacred???)

I don't know if it's just me, or if Yahoo is getting an inordinate amount of spam sent to it lately, but I've been getting a lot of stuff--the porno, ads for get rich quick schemes, ads for enlargement of...parts of the body that I don't have, all sorts of weird stuff.
