Spammers, please help the Chinese government out...
Another Xinhua report has this priceless tidbit:
Isn't this sort of request exactly the kind of useful activity that spammers could engage in instead of bothering me?
How about we get the spammers to hack through China's heinous Internet filters instead of focusing on our anti-spam filters?
1.3 Chinese people will be better off (or maybe just the 100 million who have Internet), and I get less spam. It's win-win for humanity and me.posted by: John Kneeland on 09.26.05 at 01:36 AM [permalink]
Taking this post seriously for the moment, I have trouble seeing why they would do something like this. If pr0n is outlawed, so to would be ways to monetize that (I would imagine). Likewise with ads.posted by: Lonewacko: illegal immigration news on 09.26.05 at 01:36 AM [permalink]
Check out a story on the main page of the site - samizidata called "Data Mining : Russian Style" here ...http://www.samizdata.net/blog/
It relates to apparent Chinese interceptions of high powered e-mail and other Chinese scam techniques that the writer believes he has stumbled upon.
Fascinating read.posted by: Aidan Maconachy on 09.26.05 at 01:36 AM [permalink]
