More on Squidoo spam (and Hubpages doing a good job?)

7/7/2007

Almost on cue to the Squidoo spamming response comes another piece of porn/ringtone-spam… this one leverages not just Squidoo but also Hubpages.

Hubpages, however, has *already* taken down the offending porn/spam pages. Not sure if they got a complaint or something, but obviously they are doing a better job minding the store than Squidoo.

Why wouldn’t these people just put one quality control person on the incoming “new pages” and take down the spam? (answer: less page views/revenue). If Wikipedia with no f/t staff can keep spam off their pages why can’t venture-capital back companies? You could hire a service in India for nothing to just review pages.

The offending email after the jump…

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.

Other twitter accounts you can follow: Inside.com, Ticker, This Week in Startups and LAUNCH Festival
