*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi
*** Topic is '-= What a genius idea =-'
[15:39] <Cést_la_V> I found something funny in X-chan's mailbox I think we should MST3K!!
[15:40] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> You read his email?
[15:40] <Cést_la_V> Someone has to while he's gone!!
[15:41] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> So he gave you his passwords eh? Heheheh
[15:41] <Cést_la_V> "Gave" might not be the right word...
[15:41] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> eheheheheheh don't worry Michi and I have the same "understanding"
[15:42] <FireFly_9> What understanding? The two of you play spy / counterspy with your computers to an embarrassing degree! Keyloggers, TEMPEST scanners, backdoor trojans, VNC stealth installations
[15:43] * Cést_la_V giggles

[15:43] <Cést_la_V> Anyway it has to do with US, so I thought we should MiST it
[15:43] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> What, is someone dissing us?
[15:43] <Cést_la_V> nono...
[15:43] <Cést_la_V> This letter is a "spam", but it was a pretty good one, it almost fooled me until I realized it had to be done by a bot
[15:44] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> All right toss it up, let's crack this sucker open and see what oozes out

Hi! I was just doing some research online, and came across your site while searching in Google! for dragonball movie upcoming z. Your domain, ranked 22...which got me thinking...

[15:47] <// J_Daito //> ...that you really needed to get more relevant on your examinings of "dragonball movie upcoming z"?
[15:53] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Dig! the Shatnerian! Dialog! Search! in! Google!

I publish a site about Entertainment.

[15:54] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I publish a site about Internet Things.
[15:54] <Cést_la_V> I publish a site about Words.

We've got a very strong following, primarily because we only produce informational content,

[15:55] <// J_Daito //> My Cult of the Neo Dark Kingdom has a strong following too... and they Must be Strong, for the Weak are Culled

since you also produce a quality site in this category,

[15:56] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL this was the clue that clued you in as to the spam-like nature of this post right
[15:57] <Cést_la_V> Well... no.
[15:57] <FireFly_9> "this category"? Category of what? Entertainment?
[15:57] <// J_Daito //> "Are we clowns, heah to amuse yous? Is Dat wat u tink? Huh?"

I'd like to link to you.

[15:59] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Ahh, so THIS is why Neko-chan reads the good Doc's email... people are always trying to "link" to him... hehehe... like the Odo on deep space nine
[15:59] <Cést_la_V> Quiet!!

I get a pretty good amount of visitors to my property, so if I link up to your site you should benefit from a traffic standpoint.

[16:00] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I get a pretty good amount of visitors to my property too, Mr. Shotgun usually fixes them right up

Please take a look at my site when you get a chance -- I think you'll find it to be knowledgeable and tasteful.

[16:03] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> "Tasteful"? That's the kind of adjective people use to describe certain types of girly mags!
[16:03] <FireFly_9> And you would know this because...
[16:03] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ...
[16:03] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Because whenever I umm launch out on my erm, my moral crusade against that stuff, I erm, rail out against it being called "tasteful"
[16:04] <FireFly_9> I see.
[16:04] <=^catablanca^=> how does a site become "knowledgeable", anyway?
[16:05] <Cést_la_V> Now, now, Artemis, some sites *are* knowledgeable! Google knows everything!
[16:06] <=^catablanca^=> ...
[16:06] <Cést_la_V> And I can ask this guy named Jeeves...

If you like what you agree, please link to it -- I'll send you all of my info on your request.

[16:07] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> WTF kind of Engrish
[16:07] <// J_Daito //> "Oh I like what I agree, let me link to it!"
[16:07] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> LOL watch out Neko, she'll send him *all* her info on request
[16:08] * Cést_la_V already deleted the file

[16:08] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> heh

I've already linked to you to get the ball rolling. I'll keep it up a few days until I hear back from you, so please respond at your earliest convenience. Thanks for your time.

[16:08] <// J_Daito //> Did you cut out the link, Aino?
[16:09] <Cést_la_V> There was no link
[16:09] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> So then WTF was the point of the spam!?
[16:09] <Cést_la_V> I think to get you to email the bot back
[16:09] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Ok so you say this fooled you?
[16:09] <Cést_la_V> Well it wasn't as obvious as some of the other spam I've read (do you know he gets like 300 spams a day??)
[16:10] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> damn
[16:10] <Cést_la_V> Well his email address is about 7 or 8 years old and it's all over the place
[16:11] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> heh so what clued you in
[16:11] <Cést_la_V> Well it was sent to these addresses:
[16:11] <Cést_la_V> drxadium @
[16:11] <Cést_la_V> cc:;
[16:12] <// J_Daito //> HEY wait a minute
[16:12] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah that's MY...
[16:12] <Cést_la_V> So it was obviously a bot going over the chatlogs and pulling email addresses from the article in your join / part info!
[16:13] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> hahah lucky I NEVER check my mail
[16:13] <// J_Daito //> I can't run a good client on my 386 so I don't either, but still
[16:13] <FireFly_9> Hah. Their spambot is far less intelligent than our
[16:14] <spiritflame> passed the turing test
[16:14] <spiritflame> a six hundred IQ mine
[16:14] <spiritflame> no spider can match
