What I am surprised is to see that they get paid to do this kind of brain-dead job. What a waste of resources and brain mass.

An Arduino / Ethernet Spammer?


I'd hate to imagine a little Arduino or even a room full batch sending spam emails out lol

I have the feeling the type of people that do this kind of stuff would not provide a signifigant amount of brain mass to the world anyway, we just got to get them thinking something else is a great scam platform

I often wonder how many sisters she has or why she's stalking me. Whatever town I visit and click some web-pages, when reading the advertisement she's never further away as 20 miles...

Damn! You guys get all the girls!
