MySpace: Porn Networking Spam Machine?

The other day I signed up for MySpace while researching the members with "Click The Ads" on their pages encouraging others to commit click fraud to fund their various lame causes.

Unfortunately, signing up for MySpace immediately resulted in a couple of porn spams sent to my Inbox which really pissed me off.

So I get some shit that looks like this:

FROM: MySpace Events
SUBJECT: .. has invited you to: I seen you online

Hi ,

.. has invited you to an event on MySpace:

Click the link below to view the event details:
http://events.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=PORNSPAM

Now below this, there is some bullshit message from MySpace:
At MySpace we care about your privacy. We have sent you this notification to facilitate your use as a member of the MySpace.com service. If you don't want to receive emails like this to your external email account in the future, change your Account Settings to "Do not send me notification emails."
Really, you care so much about my privacy you let goddamn porn spammers send me fucking email?

I'm touched, a tear comes to my eye ...

... yes a tear, because I realize can't reach out and smack whoever let this shit happen upside the head!

Anyway, here's the website on MySpace linked from the spam:



Here's the first site's link to a girl with a webcam:




And here's the second spam site's girl with a webcam:





I'm wondering if people under 18 get these spams too?

I think I'll just cancel the account because MySpace is no place I was to be associated with.

Yep, that happens a lot, and I'm fairly sure that it's automated so no doubt it happens a lot to minors as well.

Now imagine what it's like when you own multiple MySpace accounts :(
