the future of libraries in the digital age
March 14, 2013
I received 2 spam e-mails. One address was Julian and the other was Libreary2.0. I knew this was spam by the e-mail address at the end. Here is the text of the spam e-mail:
Julian has added you as a friend on Library 2.0
HI,am Juliana,I really want to have a good friendship with u.I have something special I want to discuses with u, I will be very happy,If u can contact me through my-emil. email@example.com
spam, wonderful spam!
I hate this spam! Thanks for letting me know. I spend about 30 - 45 minutes a day dealing with it across my networks. They can get very creative in pretending to be affiliated in order to get approved in the network. Will track down and delete these folks right now. Thanks so much for letting me know.
OK, what's weird about this is that you received the spam by email, not as a comment. I've looked up the email address there and it's not associated with any members of the site. Members do not have any access to the email capabilities of Library 2.0 unless it's in a group that someone created, and there is a group setting that the creator can allow members to email all the other members of the group.
Can you forward me the complete email you received to firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks!
I believe I deleted it though I'll check through my e-mail to see if it's there.
mine is deleted as well. can't find it.
