BASE

 

(Bay-Ss)

 

Home BASE for the war against Spam, viruses and other idjuts who use the internet for evil!

 

1)  An acronym, “Bloggers Against Spammers Everywhere”, which is for the group of people who are anti-idjuts!  Wherever a virus or bot programmer resides, a BASE’r will be there.  “.  Unfortunately, BASE has a new president, and God save those who piss Miss Martel off!

 

 

This blog has been accredited by the MPB, the Multi-Blog Manipulators, (also my initials!) as the best, fake, blog-related “Word of the Day” feature in whole, wide webosphere!  The fact that it is the only blog of it’s kind may have also had some bearing on the award’s presentation, but I highly resemble that insinuation…

 

*NOTE;  IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR A FAKE, BLOGGING-RELATED WORD OR ACRONYM THAT YOU LIKE, DESPISE OR USE, PLEASE LEAVE IT AS A COMMENT, ALONG WITH A SHORT DEFINITION AND THE PHONETICS. YOUR SUGGESTIONS WILL BE AN UPCOMING DAILY FEATURE!

 Spamalot

Defender of the meek, killer of spammers, Sir Spamalot

 

 

(Spah-Mah-Laht)

 

 

1)  A medieval blogger who posts multiple short posts per day. The thought is that if they can get hundreds of views per day with one blog post, they should be able to get thousands of views with ten short posts.

 

2)  Bloggers who fill your inbox with notices of multiple blog postings per day. Some bloggers post 10 and more blogs per day, with each one being only 3 to 5 sentences long, or showing just 1 or 2 pictures.

 

*note;  Today’s post was brought to you by the Knights Templar, defenders of post readers and bloggers alike.

CONTENTS OF THIS BLOG ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. WORDS MAY APPEAR CLOSER IN A MIRROR THAN THEY ACTUALLY ARE. 9 OUT OF 10 LIBRARIANS  ARE MOUSEY INTROVERTS, 19 TIMES OUT OF 20, YET STILL MANAGE TO APPEAR TO BE SEXY. THIS SITE IS NOT ENDORSED BY THE SPCB (THE SECOND SPC (SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY) IN THE PHONE BOOK – THE SPCA (ANIMALS) HOGGED THE FIRST SPOT ON ME AGAIN! THOSE BRUTES!)

My First Hate Mail! Yet, it includes my LinkedIn Group Members!

My wait is finally over!  Not only do i get my first hate mail (not as a comment, but left on G+ – not the same but just as good!), but the LinkedIn group that I started, which was once rather successful, and is now steadily growing again with the help of my online friends (and many more who should be joining soon through Social Oomph and Helium.com) was also targeted nastily, which I take very personally!

 

Now, I do ask my faithful followers and my great new friends from my group on LinkedIn (Doreen, Christy, Nigel, etc) to please at least read the last 2 sentences of the note (highlighted in blue, below).

 

In my very first hate mail (and it was a hard job! A long time coming too!), I am told that i am a spammer and a page view hog.  I also tweet and make G+ comments for my group members and some other followers *(as well as the sender of this hate mail) that are misleading and tag stuffing (is that anything like turkey stuffing? Yum!).  I am a

 

  I happen to know all that, Marc. So your “Uh, i only take prescribed medication for cancer and other ailments that i have…” right after your “I am not Michael Mozart” comment is just enough. I had mistakenly thought we were casual friends. I had not realized my sole purpose was to be a statistic in your hit counter.

You asked the other day if you were doing something wrong. The short answer is yes. You are a spammer. The article I told you was bait and switch is just as much a click magnet as the “I do, too!” post. Rather than offering legitimate information, you are sticking your tongue out at those who would click. I told you this a while back with your tag stuffing.

It is a social media tactic which gets people the world over unfriended. They bait people onto their statuses with cryptic or misleading claims only to get people to interact with their pages. Like the person who constantly puts up as a status, “Oh, what a horrible day,” begging the unsuspecting or the legitimate friends to engage them in conversation.

To be quite frank, if I wanted to open a blogging and social media school, I probably could. Problem is, I do not want that as a profession. I only consult for paying clients, as I have enough work of my own to do. It is a large part of the reason I abandoned the group on LinkedIn. I do not have the time to commit to giving free advice to people who are and have been using platforms without reading the instructions and the hosted advice about getting their blogs to perform.

I have made a large effort to slow the number of notifications my friends get as to my content. The ones who want it subscribe directly to me or to the RSS feed.

Here, I frequently share more things which I did not create in order to harness the driving force behind the G+ platform. The majority of my posts are public and not sent to anyone at all. This is the truest effort of someone who never wants to be listed as a spammer, and a large dose of following the advice I give to everyone who pays me.very bad person who has no idea how to use social media – duh!  I’ve been openly stating that for a while now!  I have been at this for almost 4 months now, and the sender of this note for years…

This note was in response to one i sent asking what I did wrong, and why i was being compared to someone else who blogged about something that I work at a compassionate society for.

The following is the note left on G+ to me.  Now, I will not name the originator, and I do welcome them (the non-sexual term so as not to expose her) to respond via a comment (no moderation here!) to any misinformation or missing information that they may deem necessary to this post’s being true, complete and honest, which I strive for in most of my posts (well, the serious ones anyways – some people just have no sense of humor)…

Now, listen here young man!

Now, I am not one to pay someone to give me some tips or help of any kind;  if they don’t have time for me then that’s fine, but there is absolutely no need to talk down to me or my group members.
Now, to all of my LinkedIn group members, please take heart.  This person is more than willing to offer tips to you in exchange for cold, hard cash.

I don't feel sad... but frustrated and rather peeved - take it out on me, not my group members!

And to the originator of this note – leaving it open on the social networking site, you have labelled me as a spammer and a page view hog.  You may be popular and have a good following, and now be sponsored to blog your laptop off, but leaving that note there for all to see is only done so to get people to stay away from me.

 

*note to the originator…

If you had a shred of decency you would take my name off of that  drivel  comment.
