Driving a car to Listowel for Writers’ Week…

I swear it wasn’t me driving the car or shooting the video.

Time to ban the spam

July 12, 2009 By: Patrick Stack Category: blogs

I’m getting rather tired of our Russian blog spammer “friends” at this stage. I’m not interested in what they have to say, more especially when I can’t read Russian either in cyrillic or latin script. I have neither the time nor the energy to chase down “nude photos of Angelina Jolie“, though I wouldn’t avert my gaze if one happened to pop up in front of me either. But I do take serious umbrage at spam with links claiming to lead to “nude photos of Angelina Jolie“, when in fact they lead to a malware site whose links download executable files (files ending in .exe) which no doubt harbour trojan horses and other nasty denizens of the cybervirus world.

I’m fortunate in that I can visit these sites to check them out without fear of contamination as I run Linux on my machine. Linux does not run executables with .exe extensions, unlike Windows which does, hence the vulnerability of the various Windows Operating Systems to viruses. Were I running Windows I’d be quaking in my boots every time I went online.

So, the time has come to ban the IP addresses of the offending Russian spammers from accessing this blog.

Fraternal greetings Willie…

The Willie Clancy summer school is on now.

I wonder if John Sheehan (who played such a significant part in Listowel Writers’ Week) is there?
