Technorati Loves Tasty Cloaked Blog Spam

I've noticed that Technorati has been happily eating up scraped and cloaked blog spam for ringtone sites, among other things, like it's fucking candy.

Let's use a search on my blog name as an example:



Click on those links and it's always to the same spammy page name like these hosted on theplanet.com of course:
http://artinexis.net/#comment-341
http://themetrogiant.com/#comment-329
http://pimpdomain.net/#comment-341
One server is 70.87.88.121 or 79.58.5746.static.theplanet.com with these domains all spewing ringtone ads:
about-levitra.net
acvfa.net
artinexis.net
cariculture.net
catsfive.net
citadel1.net
cloudsite.net
eightonefive.net
rennenmotorsports.net
t3linkcom.net
Another annoying server is 70.87.88.108 better known as 6c.58.5746.static.theplanet.com which has these goddamn domains:
talonpro.com
tempuspercussion.com
terminal34.com
the-god-poll.com
theincrediblesuckingspongies.com
themetrogiant.com
thepulse2000.com
thespinet.org
thewestgategazette.com
thoweu.com
tlc-express.com
Or this fucking spam filled server host 70.87.88.106 hosted by our fucking friends 6a.58.5746.static.theplanet.com:
perseidslive.com
pimpdomain.net
poemnet.net
posses1consent.com
projhind.com
ptcsucks.com
r1g4t2you.com
rbigkitty.com
rep1icas.com
ricohtour.com
rising7.com
ritalin-pharmacy.com

Here's the same shit about ringtones they all show:


Who are the fucking idiots buying all these goddamn ringtones anyway?

How about you just set the phone on buzz, stick it in your pocket, and you'll never miss a call or be confused it's someone else's phone ringing, and best of all you can do it without lining the pockets of the cell companies or perpetuating this spam. Better yet, just shove that phone up your ass as most people that feel the need to never miss a call by using goddamn custom ringtones are probably talking out of their ass anyway. While you're at it, shove some custom phone face plates and a nice blue tooth headset up your ass too, but I digress.

WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE...

I think I see a pattern here 70.87.88.106, 70.87.88.108, 70.87.88.121...

Let's try 70.87.88.120 and see what we find:
asmort.net
bevirusproof.net
conlajusticiaysociedad.net
fabionne.net
friendshipmotorinn.net
macoszone.net
palick.net
phila-ibiz.net
themikecam.net
wesmn.net
More ringtone spam spam spam....

Or let's try 70.87.88.115:
audio-wire.net
buy-cheap-2u.com
chabadofbuffalo.com
cheap-online-buy-free.com
el-condor-pasa.net
ellemtel.net
fairy-wings.net
free-top-sex.net
gotobiz.net
healthcybeline.com
javabooks.net
jemison-nealon.net
lolitasexlinks.net
macromediaseminars.com
netnetn.net
remax-powell-m-corpus-christi.com
stopsundiata.com
wangmatongli.com
xinyifang.net

Yes!

More spam spam spam spam spam!

OK, this is obviously a big operation with lot's of shit domains serving up spam on lots of IP's, I'm bored with this already, if you want to help fill in more blanks with this ringtone spammer go to Domain Tools Reverse-IP page and type in the IP address in that range and see what's on the servers.

Maybe they should change their name to Spamorati as they seem to love these fake blogs reposting old posts.

BTW, if you need help with automating the identification of spam over at Technorati just drop me a line as I'd be more than happy to show you how to automate the process for a small fee!

The things I could teach them on ways to clean up their listings and improve their service would boggle their minds.

Hi Bill.

An easy solution to your Planet problem, for that address range at least: put 70.84.0.0/14 into your firewall ban list.

And I agree with you on the ring-tone issue. Why do people fucking buy that shit? Why is there such a huge market for such lame garbage?

I think you missed the point, most of the content with my name in it was scraped from OTHER blogs and forums, and I have no control over blogger, so ME blocking them in a firewall is meaningless.

It's more of a Technorati will index any old shit sort of problem.
