Software promoted by spammers - don't buy it!

What was that?

Software promoted by spammers - don't buy it!

Postby Ian on Fri Nov 14, 2008 8:56 pm

As you can imagine, we get a lot of forum spam from people looking to promote software packages and/or their own website where you can download and purchase it. Many of these spammers pose as normal people, looking for help or trying to help others with tutorials. In reality though, they're just trying to boost their Google ranking or the awareness of their software.

I've found that there really isn't much you can do about these spammers. Most are located in China or India and blocking their IP's doesn't slow them down. Instead, I'm going to make a list of software that these spammers promote. Hopefully, this way companies will stop using spammers to promote their software and/or website.

To make a long story short, do not buy this software:

Total Video Convertor
Moyea Video to iPod Convertor
Cucu soft (these guys are one of the biggest spam promoters)
Tune Clone

Feel free to add the list.
