Blog*Spot Shenanigans

How many us are Blog*Spot refugees? A lot, I bet. Well, you might want to know that some slimy type folks are finding old Blog*Spot URL's that you and I have shut down and re-opening them to sell stuff. For example, my old blog was Eric's Random Musings, before JohnL of Texas Best Grok so graciously sponsored me into MuNuvia. Anyhow, now that I'm here, I discovered, after reading this post on The Mudville Gazette, that some weasel was using my old URL to sell ringtones to people.

If you recently moved from Blog*Spot and haven't yet shut down your blog there, I recommend you don't, so someone doesn't hijack your good name.

this has happened to many many former blogsplatters. If you have anything still up, keep it.

I kept my Blogspot URL and installed a redirect line in the code so that it will automatically send them to my Mu.Nu spot.

my better half now has a spammer who has her old blogspot account. There is a hidden porn link in the text. So keep your heads up out there folks...and hold on to the old blogspot account (mine gives directions to my munu site).
