This was me, just a few hours ago.
I woke up this morning to find that my entire site had been suspended. Turns out some asshat had been using the contact me form to turn my site into a spam relay. The worst part was, my host (id-May ase-Phay dot om-cay) seemed to think that I was the criminal and locked me out completely so that I had no way of fixing it, then proceeded to ask what I was planning on doing to fix it.
So, after I explained exactly where I thought their heads were placed anatomically, they let me back in to my control panel. I removed the contact form, and I hope I solved the problem. Unfortunately, this means that if you want to contact me privately, you have to send me a mail to Vanessa (at talktovanessa.com). Sorry for the extra step, but I dont have any choice. Until I can get a secure contact form (is there one?) it has to go via email.
Heres the thing. Spammers wouldnt spam if they didnt think they would make money. They wouldnt make money if the Nigerian Viagra peddlers didnt pay them per hit. And the Nigerian Viagra peddlers wouldnt pay them per hit if people didnt buy their crap. (Personally, I think the Nigerian people are getting a bad rap all because of a few asshats).
Are you buying their crap? Im sure not buying their crap. Who in hell is buying this crap? Any people, and I use the term loosely, who agree to give these guys so much as one thin dime, are the entire reason spam exists. We could wipe spam out tomorrow if nobody bought their crap anymore.
Listen To Vanessa: Dont Buy This Crap!!!
