HACKAPALOOZA!

Actually, my Livejournal has not been hacked. Neither has my prosperous or my Twitter or anything except one of my email addresses - innerbrat at gmail.

One spam email to my entire address list, including those things that auto post by email, which then update my Livejournal. Hooray for interconnectedness?

Anyhoo, thank you for the multiple heads up, (especially the ones that came to emails other than the hacked ones) IT only needs to be said that it's a pretty harmless hack - my gmail filters have not been touched and the message appears to be spam not viri.

I'm leaving this post here 'cause the comments made me laugh. I love you guys.

Hello,
What have you been up to ?

they have discount sales, many surprises are waiting for you.

The price of products is great low from there. But very perfect. It’s
incredible!

Remarkably,they have a very excellent after-sale service.

Seems your posterous has been hacked...

It's her Gmail, I got the same thing via email earlier as well :-(

That password security thing you posted the other day is something I think I'm going to have to find the willpower to manage.

If it was the same password thing, I don't think it's a manageable thing. Whichever system was used to hack my gmail account could be used for any password. So I've recovered that one account and changed the password. I don't think anything else has been hacked and my filters in gmail remain the same.

(BTW, I sent you a PM a couple weeks ago. I just want to check you received it?)

I amuse. To thank you for the merrieament.
20th-Sep-2010 07:12 pm (UTC)
Um, I have similar email too ...

I'm reading this in the style of the Little Man From Another Place - it makes it even funnier.

Yeah the email really threw me off. I was very, "WHAT, I'VE MENTIONED NO SUCH FACTORY!" I've never been implicated as an accomplice to spam before.

I don't think it ever occured to me your name was anything but Raj.

Yeah, Jack for Jacqueline, ooh. I've only been comfortable using it online in the past year or so. Whiiiich I guess means it's been a while since we've spoken! Hi!

HI!

It's like I've been busy with my PhD or something, IDK. How the hell are ya?
21st-Sep-2010 12:47 am (UTC)
GOOD. Yeah, my partner's on to year two of his PhD now so I know exactly where you're coming from. Plus, as I've learned, the fun of an Applied Diploma program is that they actually expect you to do work all the time or something. So there's a lot less internets timewasting and boozing in my life now, despite the "step down" from university to college.

ANYWAY LIFE IS GREAT.

How are you liking the US? Is the Freedom tangible? Does it leave an awkward residue on your skin?
21st-Sep-2010 12:48 am (UTC)
Oh! Is that freedom? I thought it was the humidity.

This explains a lot.

(I love living at this latitude. It's sunny! In the middle of September!)

Ooh, yes, first winter here approaching! That'll be fun.

Getting hacked is a bad news.

Hey! Hope you're doing well in America. I'm so jealous!

I've just started a feminist website with some friends, (http://www.badreputation.org.uk/) including tyrell, and I really want to write an article on evolutionary psychology and how it relates to gender. Mostly the branch of it which goes like this http://boingboing.net/2010/04/07/evolutionary-psychol-1.html.

I want something we can point to to make the 'but men are hunters and women are domestic and early female fertility idols are just porn for male cavemen' people go away.

But I think I'd do it wrong, whereas you actually have some understanding of the field. I'd rather see the subject done justice than hack out something myself, so if you had the time and the inclination, would you like to write a guest post for us?

Sorry for the LJ comment btw, I don't have your e-mail addy.

My email address is debi.linton@gmail.com FTR

And I would definitely love to tackle that, but it would require a lot of reserach on it because I actually want to give the valid and interesting parts of that field fair dues while debunking the crap. Is there a time scale you'd want?
