I couldn’t have gotten an over sized penis or married a model with big boobs or become a multi-millionaire even if I answered all the spam mails I got over these years. But the fact that spammers still send the same kinds of emails or blog comments shows that people do fall for these frauds.
Here is a new kind of comment I got on my About me page yesterday. It was backed up by an email via the contact page.

I was both disturbed and surprised. The title of the message is called DoS’ed. DoS stands for Denial of Service, an attack that makes websites non responsive temporarily or permanently. Crackers routinely DoS attack several countries’ important websites. But so far, all the enlargement, lottery etc. spam I got was targeted at me, the reader. This DoS message, however, is pure evil. While phishing and attack websites or tools existed for as long as I remember, someone making it a business – that’s a news.
“Winning by sabotaging others” is a common attitude. Why not improve your own website or brand instead? Lets terrorise India so that we (Pakis) can win – Look where this attitude has landed that country today.
I’m sure that the authenticity of this spam is no stronger than those penis enlargers or millionaires from Africa. It’s the mindset is bothering me. What’s more, as the email filters are improving, so are the spammers – their messages are much more personalized and they are trying to identify targets selectively.
If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.

Question to the reader:
There are several paths to victory – strengthening one’s position or sabotaging others’. While everything is fair in love and war, I find it disgustingly unethical to choose a path that damages others. Any thoughts?
