I used to have this blog...

Well, it has been some time since I have written here. Did I get burnt out? Run out of time. Not really. Twitter happened.

I joined Twitter in January of 2007, but have in the past year used it more regularly.

But I have the itch to blog again. Mainly to rant about stuff. So yay, Breaking Windows is back!

Fake Kevin Butler PlayStation Network Spam

So I got one of these spam messages. Over the top obvious. But considering that it means the sender (who is in my Friends List) would have to be stupid enough to believe it and send it on... well lets just say I am pretty sure we have no hope left for humanity. It is the classic chain email thing "send this to X people and you will win $1 M dollars" bull shit.

Then I got a second one, and now a third. It is not like I haven't seen numerous MS Points scams come across my Live account, it just needs to stop. Here is the message, transcribed with all grammar/punctuation intact. Never a subject to the message:

Hello there Playstation Network user I am Kevin Butler from Sony Entertainment Company I would like to stop this spaming rumor about Playstation Network users have to pay to playing online,please help me stop the rumor spaming if you send this to 35 people you will be granted $37 on playstation store just check your wallet money on playstation store.This message is tracked by me Kevin and Sony Entertainment Company.

Like I said, anyone who would send this message on, they win a Darwin award. So I did some digging, and found variations on this message pop up.

It needs to stop folks. I hope Kevin Butler comes and kicks your ass if you are sending these PSN messages.
