Online stuff, mostly memes or other Internet things that don't fit another category.

Fascinating story on Kuro5hin today about a battle between a netizen and a spamming company:

This is a tale of spammers and spam, and an unlikely spam fighter who has learned that spammers suck even worse than most people think. And in the end, it's the story of how spam fighters around the globe support each other when the spammers decide to go after their critics and detractors.

I love a bit of consumer activism, and Mr. Green is kicking some butt. I particularly like the fact that currently his consumer warning site is ranked fourth in Google, directly underneath the spammers themselves.

Perhaps the actual spammers have been hacked, as they're not live at the moment.
