Get rich with Bitcoin advertising on Rocknerd! [citation needed]

Today I got an email from a Bitcoiner offering a mutually beneficial business proposition! He wanted me to take this post about why Bitcoin is a terrible idea, and particularly for musicians, and add a “text link” to it (neither text nor link included in proposal) for a whole FORTY DOLLARS. That’s as many as four tens, you know!

These bozos, Arcadegamescorner, run ads all over the most incredibly dubious Bitcoin-related sites. (I haven’t clicked on any, they’re probably infected with malware that would nail Linux as well.) Now we know the going rate, does anyone want to spend $40 to advertise the Buttcoin Foundation everywhere? Thought not.

I could seriously do with the bloody money too. But the loved one concurred “yeah, no, fie upon these reprehensible scoundrels” or something like that. A moral turpitude too far.

(I have no plans to offer advertising on Rocknerd unless there’s some method that isn’t a pain in the arse or a malware hazard. Or the site magically becomes REALLY popular. Or both.)

Hi, i would like to know if is possible to offer you $40 so you can add a link to a bitcoin site at the following article:

I can send sample of the text link that will be added to the article.





(The blacked-out bit is their emailer script. It turns out this is world-accessible. It could be someone else spamming through them, but the return address is on their site and they do spam Bitcoin ads everywhere. So I guess they’re just incompetent.)

update, next day: He just sent me another two copies, identical to the two previous.
