I seem to have the most fun when new web2.0 social sites decide to ban me for self promotion.
This time its Viadeo.com
I try to login, and I get the message: account suspended.
Yippee, a site that actually provides a “normal” message when they decide to ban/suspend you.
Looks like viadeo are a step better organised that stumbleupon and Mixx
But now I have another problem:
Viadeo send me regular emails (usually titled “your personalised summary”), with my account stats and other latest happenings.
The solution should be simple enough: a link at the bottom of the email to remove myself from the mailing list…
I click on the link, I get sent to the viadeo website, where I must sign in before I can stop getting the emails… catch 22
OK, I flag the email as spam, and I now have some material for another blog post!
