***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Heh... no, not a client of mine. I was probably feeling defensive, having invited some of my own contacts to Spock. When I responded, I hadn't seen all of the context for your post, and most of the negatives I'd seen about Spock were focused on more typical startup issues (e.g. balky servers, misplaced data). I thought I was paying attention, but clearly not. I'm wondering about the spamming of trust requests that you mention: are you saying they're generating trust requests from persons who have not actually become members of the site? Is this confirmed - or a suspicion? I could probably live with the Facebook "mad libs" fumble as an error showing questionable judgement, but sending a trust request in your name without your authorization is both deceitful and self-destructive. Thanks for the clear and complete response. I talked to Nancy White about Spock last night, and she noted that, once you've been spidered into their system, they send you notices whether you've signed up or not. That, too, is pretty clueless. ~ Jon On Dec 19, 2007 9:15 AM, Valdis Krebs <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > I'm kind of surprised to have this question from you, Jon.. my > apologies if they are a client of yours... -- Jon Lebkowsky Polycot Associates http://polycot.com Blog: http://weblogsky.com Profile: http://profile.to/jonlebkowsky _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
