    hi,

    I am doing a research project about scumware/P2P programs for my humanities class. I would like to know if anyone would be willing to answer specific questions, submit via webform, or factual stories pertaining to your experiences with P2P software and/or scumware.

    My viewing audience will be 3500 high school students plus 600+ faculty members in a major metropolitan area.

    If anyone is willing to allow me to use excerpts from any of your posts on this board or ABW, please leave your username in response here.

    My mom has previously contacted Haiko in regards to this project, and he has agreed to allow me to post here for gathering information.

    I'll check back later to see if anyone is interested, and if so, provide the URL and specific questions.

    Thank you,
    Mitch

    Having just had 3 days of trying to get rid of the effects of a drive by install and all the parasites it left on my PC - I would be happy to help.

    Have at any of my 7700 posts on the subject of sleezy affiliate marketing techniques. Search for B-a-HO here and share with your group. Easiest way to show the theftware in action is to go to any Freebee, lotto, rewards, surf to earn site to pick up a supply of parasites on HS test systems. Sign up for all the ethical e-mail marketing programs and watch the porn sleeze and spammers mysteriously bomb your schools e-mail box.

    Great topic that should get community support and media attention for your school district. Contact Bill Gates and get a Microsoft grant and free computers to test on!!

    Feel free to use any of my test results regarding levels of BHO infections. The more the word gets out about how bad these things are, the better!

    Hi Mitch! Welcome to ABW!

    You can use anything I've posted that might help. Here's one for you to start with: A friend of mine is in the computer repair business. He said one of the major reasons people bring their computers in for repair is due to problems that the parasitic software applications cause. They don't allow the computer to function normally, and performance continues to degrade until they just don't work properly anymore.

    It doesn't happen to all computers, but he stays pretty busy...and he's not inexpensive, either. Just one good reason to not get involved with the parasitic applications. The money you might get back in rebates or coupons might be spent several times over in the computer repair shop! Why bother?

    If anything I posted is useful to you then use it by all means. I would just add that between the virus's and the parasites they have cost me 3 new hard drives and the instals now.

    I got my parasiteware t-shirt
    All parasites are scumbags and should be treated as such....STAMP EM OUT!!!
    Take care

    Hi Mitch,

    Anything I can do to help please let me know. I've done quite a bit of testing with the parasite applications. Also if you would like information on how people can protect themselves from these applications. Feel free to PM me with anything you need.

    It's Your Money. You earned it. What are you going to do to make sure you get to keep it?

    Jason ...he'd have to clean up my contribution there first for his HS crew....

    "Your whistling into a gale force wind unless you talk directly to the merchant's management. The AM's just don't give a crap one way or the other as long as they get their commission and paycheck. eBates is a fully automated script that could be run by a pimpled faced Geek webmaster due to the network daily autoloads of incent offers. If only those pesky 20% didn't demand their rebate checks Paul would stuff all the money they vaccum into his own pocket and fire the other employees."
