Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

The New Yorker has a fascinating article on the history of electronic spam. They cover the origins of spam, how it has evolved over the years, as well as the somewhat futile attempts to try and eradicate it.
In the spring of 1978, an energetic marketing man named Gary Thuerk wanted to let people in [...]

Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

As you may have noticed Technorati is currently showing zero fans/favourites for all blogs. In all likelihood it’s a minor glitch but Amit Agarwal from Digital Inspiration has a different take on the situation.
This is what he had to say:

Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

By using a contact form you give your visitors a way to get in touch with you whilst not publicly exposing your email address, thus keeping it out of the hands of spammers. However, there is still the issue of automated spam.
This is where the Akismet Edition of WP-ContactForm comes in. It uses the Akismet spam filtering feature [...]

I only noticed this now but MyBlogLog is testing out a limit on the amount of messages that can be sent in a day. The limit they have imposed is 20, with the exception being if you send a message and get a reply the number doesn’t drop because you are actually engaging in [...]

Friend Spamming On Digg


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

I don’t suggest trying this unless you plan on getting banned from Digg.
TheGoogleCache has delivered a proof of concept, showing how you can get someone to unwittingly befriend you on Digg, using a new feature they’ve implemented.
It’s amazingly simple.
You can now add a friend on Digg just by visiting the url http://digg.com/invitefrom/{username} as long as you [...]

What Is The NoFollow Tag?


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /nfs/c02/h06/mnt/46791/domains/thewrongadvices.com/html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

The rel=”nofollow” tag is a HTML attribute that is used to tell search engines to assign no value to the link it is attached to.
How well you rank in search engines results pages is determined by the number and quality of links pointing to your site, so when the nofollow tag is used it [...]
