I’m on vacation this week, which is to say that I’m catching up on work. While doing a collection of web maintenance tasks and getting a couple of new web sites ready, I’m struck with the question “Why are there so many Assholes ?”
- Why do the same assholes SPAM my blog every day? I moderate spam so it never appears, but each day they come back to offer my reader viagra, hair tonic, fake Rolex’s, etc.
- Why to the same assholes SPAM my quest book at ManagedCode.com over and over again. I always delete spam guestbook signatures so they don’t result in any traffic, but they keep on posting.
- Why would some asshole deface my site at ManagedCode.com? I’ve been using IPortal (the Classic ASP Version) and a bug was recently found. Someone defaced my site. I fixed it. They defaced it again. They use an alias so they don't get credit, it’s not a hack (they just copy what someone else found) so there is no intellectual credit, there doesn’t seem to be any political benefit – so what’s the POINT?
and speaking of Assholes, if your interested in the SOOP project, make sure you go to www.soopportal.ORG and NOT www.soopportal.COM – because some asshole has gleaned the SOOP name to use for a porn site.
