Spam: Nuke from orbit, por favor.

Carefully hand-crafted spam, to boot.

Just for the LOL she should be nuked.

That was weird. She took the time to join and comment, but didn't think we'd notice two spam links?

Make money now, ask me how!

Check out the autoresponse she sent SportsFilter's new account email:

Thank you for writing. If I don't get back to you in the next few
minutes, it simply means I am not online for the time being. If you
ordered a packet of backlinks, I WILL get that packet to you within 24
hours of the time you ordered. They are usually sent much sooner than
that, however.

I live on the US West Coast and am in the same time zone as Seattle,
San Francisco, and Los Angeles whose current times can be seen on this
World Clock:

Thank you for your patience and I WILL get back to you.

That time zone shit is handy. Does she actually mail web links to you? I'd like to find out.

I'd like to find out.

...and I WILL get back to you.

Sounds like a promise to me.

Guess what?

You can see a photo and learn about how she shut down Nigerian scammers (is there no honor among thieves?) at her site. And there's some real hacker talk about building backlinks too. But watch your ass because she wore a wire to bust her fellow employee at Wendy's.

Naive Wendy's Employee: "Hey Edna, can you switch shifts with me on Thursday?"

Enda: "No, Sorry. If I switch with you, I'd be working with Angie, who wore a wire to work one day, while working for the feds. Then she coaxed me into a conversation about my check fraud scheme. They busted down my door at home and seized $1,000,000.00 in fake checks. I'm currently facing two years in prison and five years of probation. So no, I can't switch Thursday with you."

Naive Wendy's Employee: "Oh okay" (Awkward)

It's pretty weird that she would go to such lengths to stop a fake-check scam and not realize that spamming sites to get backlinks is also shady (though admittedly to a lesser degree).

I guess I don't understand the whole backlinks thing. So, by doing this, would her site/article get better google results or something?

She works at Wendy's. And used to work at Jack in the Box. It's not like she's splitting atoms 9-5.

Illegal Nigerian check scam? Illegal. Being an annoying, shady, motherfucking spammer? Unfortunately it's just annoying, shady and motherfuckery.

I'm stealing that one. Although, to be fair, you don't know what powers the fry-a-lator.

Judging by the taste of what comes out...I'd say diesel.

posted by BoKnows at 03:16 PM on April 09

yummy, yummy diesel.

I got my backlinks in the mail today! They're even nicer than they seem on TV. Solid construction, good weight, and they look great on my mantelpiece.

Did it come with complimentary ShamWows?
