Inbox (4259)

While I am fully aware there are roughly a few people waiting for me to actually reply to my e-mails, I thought I would finally get around to have look at my e-mails …, my former Ellisfamily.TK e-mails of course.

Just like addresses and phone numbers, e-mail addresses is now often used as the core of people’s communications (some may debate social networks is now the most used online communication for personal usage but same applies) and just like addresses and phone numbers that once you change them there is always someone who will never use the new one or just don’t know about them. In this case, there is 4259 different people, companies or whatever that is not using my new address (likely because I never given it to them).

Stealing content online

As you may know, I have a e-mail address that people seems to think they can actually contact me but it is actually very rarely do I check that inbox. Regardless I actually saw a message which made be think a tiny bit. It went as following.

Hi Snat

i am trying to block the ad on your website but when I do so no youtube video works on this website. can you help me ?

That e-mail made me think. In a way, this user is actually stealing from me. Think about it for a minute. I use Google Adsense to fund the hosting that Tweaked for your Pleasure uses and that by using this website you agree that you will view the ads. Now I don’t mean you have to actually visit those websites but I just mean that they have to be on the website.

Social Fraud – Getting quite easy nowadays

Well, this post in a direct reply to yet another blog post that I written and that was about Facebook being the home of forgotten passwords.

Social Networks are a place to meet people that you might never ever know and that is true, you never know who the other person is on the other side. With the likes of Facebook and MySpace, it is so easy to be accepted as a friend on their profile.

Basically, what this means (Not including limited view on Facebook right now) is that you can see whatever details they have put such as birthdays. If you remember of that last post I did, that was a key on getting access to someone domain etc.
