Heavily Disgusting Spam Comments from Indian SearchEngine
Perhaps for the past two months, I have been observing a steady set of spam comments from one Mr. T. P. Raja in support of ByIndia, claiming to be a superior Indian search engine. Website search revealed that this guy has posted similar comments to very many weblogs. The text of the comment, which I investigated across weblogs was similar to this:
Have you seen the new India search engine www.ByIndia.com… Have you seen the new India search engine www.ByIndia.com they added all the cool features of popular products like MySpace, YouTube, Ebay, Craigslist, etc. all for free to use and specifically for India. Anyone else try this yet?
ByIndia.com First to Blend Search, Social Network, Video Sharing and Auctions Into One Seamless Product for Indian Internet Users.
When I reported this to ByIndia, the following was the response. I am not sure whether this is a Copy Paste or has been duly investigated into:
We apologize for the trouble but to further investigate the issue we will
need you to send us a copy of one of the spam emails you received including
the headers of the message. We are not sure if the messages are originating
from our servers but this information will help us investigate it and repair
With search engines like Google and Altavista pioneering to stamp out spamming of thier index and provide superior results, pranksters like these have also begun to misuse the search engines for their mean businesses. I think, a relevant Internet Censorship authority should ban these sites as underground. Only then, we can save the sanctity of Information Highway.
If you would like some Tamil humor quote on this, here goes –> “T. P. Raja. Nee poy thooku Gooja”. (In English, the meaning goes –> T. P. Raja. Go and do some junk errands if you feel yourself idle too much”
