FAQ: What Do Ron Paul's Internet Fans Have In Common With Unsolicited Emailers Offering You Sixty (60) Million In Unclaimed Nigerian Gold?

Apparently many of his most passionate fans headquarter their spamming operations in the internet fraud capital of the world.

AB Spam Team Spots First Presidential Campaign Spam

Anti-spam researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) noted a disturbing new trend following Sundays Republican Candidates Presidential debate. One of the candidates has a new spam campaign dedicated to proclaiming him victorious in the debate and extolling his virtues as the future president.

...

Ron Paul is popular with the Internet and some of the recent Web polls that were taken down because of Ron Paul Spammers include:

http://www.cnbc.com/id/21257762/site/14081545/

http://constitutionallyright.com/2007/10/12/cnbc-forced-to-take-down-pol l-because-of-ron-paul-spammers/

The new messages have headlines such as:

Ron Paul Wins GOP Debate!
Ron Paul Eliminates the IRS!
Ron Paul Stops Iraq War!
Vote Ron Paul 2008!
Iraq Scam Exposed, Ron Paul
Government Wasteful Spending Eliminated By Ron Paul

Warner says, Weve seen many previous emails reported as spam from other campaigns or parties, but when weve investigated them, they all were sent from the legitimate parties. The important distinction between the new emails and previous emails, Warner says, is the fraudulent nature of the message. Legitimate messages tell who they are from, and provide a means of unsubscribing from future messages from the same source.

According to the CAN-SPAM Act, the primary law under which unwanted email can be prosecuted in the US, one of the factors that makes a message spam is deceptive sending practices. In the messages reviewed at UAB, emails were received from Brazil, El Salvador, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, and Nigeria already this morning. In each case it was clear that the computer sending the message did not belong to the person who was listed in the From address. Such as a Houston resident, whose email was sent from a computer in Italy, or a Silicon Valley computer worker, whose email was sent from Korea.

I find it amusing that Ron Paul fans haven't figured out that their tactics only piss people off.

9 They're descending into the comments sections of all the blogs that have posted on the story as we speak. It won't be long before they show up here with their canned speeches and denials.

10 I had my first Paulspam yesterday, two today.

I think about ten more and he'll get my vote.

Sure he will, yup.

13 Ron Paul = Neo
You're living in a Matrix, wingnuts. One that does not adhere to constitutional principles or the gold standard. Time to WAKE UP!

14 How strange RON PAUL. Every sentence RON PAUL I write on my computer RON PAUL seems to automaticallyadd Ron Paul RON PAUL every five or ten words RON PAUL
It's like the damn thing RON PAUL is possessed or something RON PAUL.

15 The spam scammers know that Ron Paul's followers tend to bethose inclined toblindly send money in support of their Messiah.
Kucinich is probably next.
Now, if they would onlyadd fundraising for Hillary, Obama, Richardson, et al., they actually would perform a public service.

Posted by: electron john at October 30, 2007 04:32 PM (ZvbcI)

16 Honestly that adspammers would be the kind inclined to support Ron Paul doesn't exactly fill me with wonder.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at October 30, 2007 04:41 PM (hfyfI)

17 Actually, I wouldn't mind a couple of Paulbot comments...so I could go and edit them creatively.

Posted by: Purple Avenger at October 30, 2007 05:44 PM (491+P)

18 There was an Onion-like article with the same story several months ago. This isn't that?

Ron Paul represents the buchanan wing that I thought we already got rid of. Is it possible to combine him with the intolerant evangelicals and get rid of them for good?

Posted by: PJ at October 30, 2007 06:12 PM (8dfqL)

19 And if I'm elected, I will add 3 inches to your penis in 22 days!
Even you, Hillary.

20 Intolerant evangelicals


Translation: anyone socially conservative that wants to fight abortion.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at October 30, 2007 10:37 PM (hfyfI)

21 If you read the actual article, they say there is no reason to believe that it actually has anything to do with his campaign.

But this kind of thing is a pretty easy and powerful dirty trick to pull if you wanted to discredit a candidate's who does seem to have a small, but fanatical, technically savvy base. It's actually a brilliant idea to send out spam, because people are
actually willing to believe that the Ron Paul campaign would send out
spam.

Ron Paul has raised 5 million dollars in the last quarter from this same demographic... and, believe it or not, has gotten more donations from the enlisted men and women than any other candidate from either party. 5 million is negligible when you consider that the MSM has already picked their frontrunners based on the top 3 corporate corporate cash recipients from each party. But whatever Ron Paul's problems are, he is more worthy a candidate than Giuliani, Romney, McCain, Hillary, Obama, or Edwards.

I think we should just have a damned election... and let people pick who they want without all this bullshit. I mean, just about anybody would be better than the 6 candidates chosen as "serious" by the MSM. (The same bastards are ruling out Thompson because he looks old and Huckabee because he's Christian, it's utter nonsense).
