Mababaw. Bow. (Friendster SPAMocide)

I started getting a deluge of Friendster SPAM when more people started using the Friendster blogging service.

The SPAM hailed:
Mike has updated his Friendster Blog
Michelle has updated her Friendster Blog
Bonifacio has updated his Friendster Blog
Ildefonso has updated his Friendster Blog
Procopio has updated his Friendster Blog
Maxima has updated her Friendster Blog
Bantay has updated his Friendster Blog
Whew! What the what????!!! I don't logon to Friendster regularly and I do not intend to visit a friend's blog each and every time it is updated!

How do I get out of this SPAM dump? Here's how I did it and it's been working fine:
  • Login to your friendster account
  • Click account settings (upper right side of webpage)
  • In "Receive Notification Emails", select No
  • In "Receive Friend Updates", select No
  • Click Save
Whew! A relief from Friendster SPAM.
Need relief from Smart SMS SPAM (SPASMS)? Try this: Txt Exclusion

Ah... makes me crave for a SPAM breakfast on Sunday ....
