No clue whatsoever in fact.

I made a blog post two years ago about some free credit Skype gave out.

Here is the latest comment on that post:

A new comment was posted on your Geekzone Blog entry 'Skype Free Credit' (

Comment from 'roksvelll':

pleace give to me free call

The user is not logged in as a Geekzone user, and did not leave any URL, email address, or other identifying details.

What did he actually expect?

Me to put $1000 worth of Skype credit in a wee bag, attach it to a carrier pigeon, and tell the pigeon to head off to ? (We log users IP addresses on comments).

Read the rest of the comments if you want to see the level of incompetency out there.

I smell 'spams'

Most of them are not spams, they dont even make an attempt to leave a URL or email address...

No, chaks it is not spam. People have no clue. They read a page on the Internet and they willingly give out their details, or ask for freebies.

I receive e-mail every day from people who search "Vodafone" and find Geekzone. Instead of going to the Vodafone website they come to Geekzone, click "Contact Us" and send me e-mails with their credit card numbers, name, account information and ask to have it paid for them - instead of contacting Vodafone directly.

People are clueless...
