I received a lot of spam message from my Facebook friend such as “lol check out this girl, bla bla bla..”, with a link to click. I believe once you click the link it will infected your to your Facebook account. I thought that the Facebook account has been compromised and i always ask my friends who get infected to change their password and scan their pc. But still did not solve the problem. (more…)
Just last week, an online friend of mine introduce me to a software that can browse BlogCatalog and add comment. So I read on the sales page and it says that you try it for free. So I click to download it .
It is called TrafficPsyche. My first thought was, this software is something like Comment Kahuna that can browse certain niche and certain PR of blogs and you can leave comment. Since he told me that this software is not a spam and will I will get more friends and traffic,. So I thought why not give it a try.
Beware of this Automated Spam Software
DOS Format Only
So when I installed it, it’s totally in DOS format. Just provide your BlogCatalog ID and password. After that write your comment and choose which group that you like to browse. Wah, this is so easy.
When I click the R for RUN button and enter, I don’t see any of BlogCatalog website and group but only dot dot dot. The software only provide text update and will tell you which account that it surf and leave my message.
Not once in my mind thought that this automated software will ruin my reputation in Blogcatalog. My nigthmare begins when I cannot log in to my account and all my blog and comment dissapeard.
After that I realise I was banned and I just spammed the whole BlogCatalog community. Immediately, I sent email to the admin asking for forgiveness by statting that I was tricked and stupid. Sadly they reply that my action was an insult to the BlogCatalog community and refuse to activate my account back as for now.
I would like to apologise to all BlogCatalog Community and their Administration. I am really a bad boy, but people tend to make mistake rite. Spamming is bad for your reputation as blogger and for your health. Why ? Because nobody will come to my blog again and I will get depression hehehe.
BlogCatalog has been help me a lot for all this year, build my reputation and increase my traffic. If I only knew that my action would jeopardize my account, of course i will not use that software.Plus, I will be extra careful in the future.
