Kindness Campaign

Postby raxdb15 » Fri, 09 Jan 2009 2:45 pm

Was sent this link by one of my colleagues and thought it was a rather meaningful way to start the new year.

http://kindness.sg/

Thought you guys could take a look and maybe take a minute to think what little actions we can undertake to have a better year!

These clowns are very kind when it comes to their terms of use.

Linking to the Homepage: You may link to the Homepage of this Site, upon notifying SKM in writing.

So unless you notified them that you were going to post the link here you are in violation of the terms of use.

But, just how do these folks expect to get the word out if linking is prohibited? Maroons.

I have also received one from a Maxine Teng, titled Singapore requirement impt. It is a pretty good con, claiming Microsoft are paying people to forward on, I have literally thousands of emails now ha!

It's good if you can use them, maybe UK design can insert his advertisement and let people forward it on. The people behind these new innovations of marketing are tracking the the reach and collecting emails too by the looks of it, could also plant virus bots or worms onto the computer if opened or just visiting the links. Best to do sscan for spyware if not protected.

Admittedly often suspicious of people that give referral links with their first post, but on the surface it seems like a nice thought.

What is a maroons? Isn't this typical out of the can disclaimers for a website? If they're intent is to spread nice, is it just mean to flame them? lol!

Am I missing something? It didn't look like the microsoft chain letter going around. Did they claim you'd benefit financially if you forward the link? (Provided you have permission to do so.)

Yes it is the Microsoft chain letter i received today, it's been sent on to me, but it stops here! With thousands of emails on it, I was a little confused that i had to page down so far to read the message, it's been sent to many, before arriving in my box. with claims by some they have received money. I guess it's being tracked by something malicious!

Maroon = M O R O N

You want to say something nice, you have to post your email address. Why? Email harvester is all it is.
