Angry Stupid to try to help (Ausfish.com)

I need to vent....
By chance I cam across this:
http://www.ausfish.com.au/vforum/sho...d.php?t=175595

I thought I would help and give them some good tips.

Took me more than 10 minutes to register:
failed several times because:
- user name at least 6 letters (who cares!);
- you have to give your birthday (who cares!)
- the blurred letters you have to copy are hell;


Finally when I had my account activated, I clicked on reply.....

....you have to pay a membership to reply

Well good luck finding a place to fish in Vietnam
Just wasted my breakfast time.

Always a pleasure to try to help.

Conclusion: enjoy THT

Sounds like an email/info harvest scheme.

I see things like this from time-to-time offering free stuff. You do a questonaire, including name, address, phone, email. I enter the empty lot across the street and make up the rest. I know this is what's happening because, when I was new in the neighborhood, the postal carrier use to leave me stuff with a note "Is this someone in your household?"

I just won a thousand dollar from Walmart, ( I do buy stuff on line there time to time) it was actually when I got into the site and I have areal good pop-up blocker - it looked real so I gave them my email and then they wanted more info and said if I gave my cell # they would give me the card activation number or something via text - It was a text message trying to sell me something - I have a feeling I will get more

I belong to ausfish , they don't sell your info.
They do run things different down there and the $10.00 fee keeps the riff raff out.

Also , I have yet to find the secret Vietnamese Pole Dancers Forum but they have some really cool ALLOY BOATS down there and some VERY good builders.

Looks like the $10.00 fee did it's job

Although a more thorough read of the web page would have revealed a free membership clicky thingy.

The paying membership gives bonus forums like Bilge(wouldn't understand a word) and GPS marks(great for the next visit to Moreton Bay).

Homepage since 2004.
