Phictional character Tom of MySpace (maybe the prodigal son of Tom “We’ll leave the light on for ya” Bodett of Motel 6? ) is annoyed at a recent slew of
spammers … accessing … your account … using it to market their junk to your friends via YOUR bulletins and YOUR comments.
Whoa there, you *almost* sound human, Tom. WTFLOL!
Tell me Tom, how did they get my password?
now how did they get your password? it’s called phishing. somewhere on myspace you clicked on a link, profile, page – something, and you saw the myspace login page. but wait – it wasn’t really the myspace login page. it was a FAKE LOGIN PAGE. that fake page was created by a spammer who is waiting for you to enter your email and password. once you’ve done that, he’s stores your info. then he runs scripts to send bulletin spam and comment spam on myspace.
Thanks for clearing that up. I’m glad you’ve got things under control and are growing the service. It’s not like this is the first time those phishy people have attacked us.
But kudos to you, Tim — you da man, Tom-Tom. I know my future is secure with you on the watch.

Ouch, you seem to have harsh feelings for your friend Tom.
Hey Chris I just came across your blog this morning and have been skimming through all your past entries. I started cracking up after reading this one, Tom sold out to the Devil himself, Rupert Murdoch. Not to mention the buggy and slow ColdFusion, hordes of advertisements, child molesters, and whatnot. When a site that makes as much money as MySpace perpetually crashes or freezes up on you, can you really say the owners actually care about the end-user experience, let alone the security of their accounts? =P
