Lady Spam May 2, 2011 at 3:19 pm
One of the most irritating forms of spam I get is web ‘publishers’ wanting to resyndicate the contents of Deus Ex. Typically the gig is that they make money from the advertising and their ‘contributors’ don’t get a cut. This, needless to say, is not my model. Deus Ex doesn’t carry advertising because advertising irritates me, and I don’t think you, dear reader, want to read it. Hence I use a Creative Commons license: this means that I have a decent shot at suing anyone who does resyndicate my stuff without permission.
Anyway, usually the bottom feeders usually go away if you ignore them, but I currently have one that is unusually persistent. I’m hoping that the wave of spam that will hit her once her email address is up for the bots to find will at least be partial recompense for the annoyance she is causing. The address is email@example.com – please feel free to treat her, Nimble Publishing, and Forex Traders (with which she claims some association) with utter disdain. I know I do.
