The End of the World as We Know It

Challenge accepted! New Year`s belated resolution: let`s try to make the “See who” scam clan go to rehab. It`s no easy job, granted. The countless spy-me-do varieties keep humming dear Amy`s response so I guess it`s time for a collective intervention. Let`s sit down and have a chat with the chief of the clan.

We hear you when you say: “Yes I`ve been [bad] but when I come back you`ll know, know, know”. Right you are, not once, but twice. You`ve been back several times and we did not miss any of your majestic entrances. Late last year, you were playing the part of the bashful and SHOCKED damsel:

Early into 2012, you went for another classic stunt: the oh-so-fake but oh-so-impressive statistic:

Guess you then decided you needed to spike things up a little bit and strayed in the spirits department. And this is what happened when you and your muse got grammatically inebriated:

While we admire your quest for an identity, a place of your own under the Black Sun of the scam-loaded social e-planet, we really, really think you`re not cut out to be a magician that pulls all sorts of 007 tricks out of his hat:

Have you heard of dark matter? Why don`t you channel your ocular obsession in that direction? I hear if you stare hard enough, you might actually see it (blink blink). Scout`s honor!

But wait! It`s not over till Simon says “Pay for your Facebook account”.

“A SAD NEWS FOR ALL FACEBOOKERS- from fb developers, now you will be charged for using facebook after jan 15 2012 under their new terms and policies. I have already cracked my profile for free use,thanks to the App. CRACK IT SOON–> Continue your Free F.B. membership here.”

That`s what the threat sounds like. Not much of a breakthrough here either (except, perhaps, for the cryptic reference to an account hacking app. “THERE`s no SUCH TOOL”, let this be your mantra for this year!). It`s back in the days of January 2010 that we first heard it and did not lose too much sleep over it. Everybody in the house come on and let me hear you say: HooooooooooAax!
