Trying to get back into blog mode, I naturally checked out one of Garry’s blogs and saw his post on the Quechup Scam.
I then ran across a post on eWeek about Quechup’s viral marketing. It boils down to Quechup spoofing email origins – what a bunch of morons. Can you believe that a “social networking” site would resort to these spammy, anti-social tactics to increase members?

Taking it a step further, with all of this negative publicty they are getting from the blogosphere, Quechup may already be doomed to failure because bloggers are not likely to forget this fiasco.
