'Adver-trolling' - the latest advertising whoredom

hello my name is robbie next august its my birthday and i wanted to travel outside the states because i have never done it before, my mom says i should go to madrid spain because its a great city with lots of history, my dad says i should go to Rome and i am very conffused because i cant decide where to go, i also dont know where to buy all the things, like the airplane ticket , to book the hotel and all that, i was thinking maybe in a travel agency, some friends told me that on the internet the found a great escorted tour, which maybe right for me considering that i would be traveling alone and i have not benn in any contry other than the states, son probably a planned tour coul be fine, some friends bought a tour to Argentina on a web page and said it was great i think the page is WAD OF WHORECUM , but i dont know all that things i was wondering if some one could tell me if it was better to travel with a tour o r what and where to go rome or madrid i would sure appreciete it a lot

robbie




I have left this here so we can all get educated (or as Robbie would say "edukatted") on how this nasty little scam works. Caveat emptor, cunts!

You really joined this forum just to ask people where to travel and how to book it? I doubt it. You are either an extremely ineffective troll or just an imbecile, likely a combination of the two.

First of all, through your stay at metaltabs, you will make sure at least half of your posts are relevant to metal music, right?
Second of all, are you an American of the United States or a resident of another country where the english language is the most commonly taught language in schools? If so, there is no excuse for that gigantic run-on sentence. Holy fuck.
Third of all, I'm sure you'll get positive and negative reviews on Spain throughout any replies that come before the closing of this thread. But in short, this isn't the best place to ask.
Fourth of all, welcome to metaltabs. I hope you enjoy our asshole quality and unique way of a dark and deviant life.

This is spam. Wait a week and then Google little Robbie's special happy little message. Minimum 20 identical hits.

I am going to that website, taking some email addresses and dropping them in what I like to call "the memory hole". Fight fire with fire, wha'?

Wow, that's mighty sharp work Jim. It's funny, that actually occured to me (as a possibility) as soon as I saw the link, but I kind of ruled it out as being simple trolling. Awesome work, brother man.

Double busted.

You find things like this by taking unique phrases from the post. You can't find "Hi my name is Robbie" so good, because it won't 'phrase-grab'. This one was simple - "benn in any contry" is so badly spelt it defies belief that any normal person could have written it. It grabbed straight away off both Google and Metacrawler.

There are three classic signs of what I call "advertrolling"

1. Obviously, someone's first and only post which contains a hyperlink.

Well, of course.

2. Purposefully misspelt words, unnaturally mangled prose, stupid intent.

It's hard to believe some 30+-year-old ponytailed marketing whore's taint sat down and thought out the composition and structure of that post. But they did.

3. Always posed as a solution to a problem.

Never "hi my names Jamy and i roooooolly like www.fuckknuckles.com"...

...but rather "hi my nanmes Jamie and i have great prooblems finding a fuckknuckle in the morning. do u guys have that trubble? anyway, seems like www.fuckknuckle.com can help mi. well g2g."

Triple busted
And one more!

Notice how they're all dated very recently, either May or May 2*th. This is a recent campaign.

A word on this kind of advertising. It's one of the functions of what might be called viral or guerilla advertising. It's a hip new thing, and like most hip new things, it is both subversive in intent and a complete insult to the intelligence. Admittedly, it is the lowest grade of misrepresentation of the sphere of personal opinions, certainly not up there with paying for blog entries (a recent phenomena) or buying favourable press coverage (an old story). Still, it's fundamentally dishonest, and I hate it.

To put it in language more of you here may understand, there is something very fucking gay about it.

I wish I had a metaltabs.com email address so I could deliver an official message to the Affordable Fuckfaces about their marketing ethics...






I just wrote this up at the old Cuntsworthy HQ. Enjoy.

I wonder how these Adver-trolls work, would they actually pay someone to sit there and make a profile, then paste the generic resopnse, or would they have someone program something that does it all in one. I guess this depends on where these messages appear (im too lazy to look at your links) if they are all vBuliten forums and have the same username i would think that it is more l;ikely that this has been done by a program rather than a person.

Anti-spamming things are sadly a must in this moddern world. (I happen to be doing some research into a method of combating e-mail spam at a server level at the moment - thats why I claim to know at least some things about this sort of stuff)

Agreed, but I've known that for awhile now. I can hear f_b_s moan and cringe whenever I post though.

Thanks for the explanation of all that. I caught from your comment early on that it was a scam. Dr.C was pretty amusing, too. I'll keep my eyes open at my forums for things like this now. Thanks again.
