How dumb some people think other people are?

Right now I have 12 e-mails in the inbox of the free hosting offer mailbox, almost all of them look nearly identical. Something like this:

fei

Reason: freebie

Name: wu

Address: feiwu

Phone: feiwu

Message: Can open the same of space me to do the yellow forum 么 !Thank!If can of words! Please the letter of reply: akcoo@vip.163.com

More e-mails like this: grayer@vip.163.com, caotang@vip.163.com, stupid122431hk@gmail.com, cnflying@163.com, emufy@163.com, doon@xasamail.com, suyan@vip.1488.com, lxycc@msn.com, eoyul@vip.163.com, admin788@gmail.com

It’s just hilarious to see the same guy (the 163 domain) sending same e-mail over and over again. Is it really that difficult to find a free host who DOESN’T care what you put on his servers? I care, therefore I will not approve inquiries that have entries like this:

Address: zhongdongcun27

Phone: rouqingjingwang

Yeah, I was really looking forward at dialing that fantastic number!

Web hosting requests

What makes people to post requests like these?

Platform: Linux

Space: 1000 MB

Bandwidth: 30GB

Control Panel: yes

IP Address: no

Email Accounts: unlimited

Database(s): unlimited

Expected cost: 1 per year

Right, like someone is really going to give them free hosting like this. The forum seems pretty empty. I mean if the forum would have been up to the resources, then sure, it would make a lot of sense to give the guy what he wants for banner on his pages, but with overall 42 members… I have my own forum, it has 55 members and it takes approximately 300 Megs of bandwidth, not to mention space… and only one database.

On the topic of forums… recently spoke with guy who wanted me to host Chinese forum for free. Two words – get real. Such forums consume enormous amount of resources, oftentimes host illegal wares, porn or both, there is no way for English-Russian speaking host to determine what’s behind those signs they call hieroglyphs, and you want all this hassle for free? You are stealing hundreds and thousands worth of software and you don’t even want to pass the savings? Curse, curse, curse πŸ™‚
