Mission SafeSocialNetworking_EcoSystem

These days every Tom, Dick and Harry enters a social networking system and sends out invitations to expand their community. Sometimes hysteric people use this to vent out their emotions too. Check out our earlier narration of an incident here. I was just thinking we can make a constructive use of these crappy persons too. The product of this research is Mission SafeSocialNetworking_EcoSystem.

I am currently using a simple Windows forms desktop application made in C# that processes such emails, generates a customized application form for each spammer. If the spammer is really pursuing further, it also allows to track payments and responses through NETWORKING_PERMISSION_GRANT or NETWORKING_PERMISSION_DENY.

The following response generated by the application itself would explain the modus-operandi of the application and our noble mission to safeguard our social networking communities. We support Google Orkut's goal outlined here to protect our social networking communities and keeping them clean and beautiful.

We appreciate your endeavor to expand your networking through an internet-based social networking community. With the increasing perils looming with Social networking websites involving productivity time, we would need to adhere to the above said protocol to successfully network with members.

The desktop application would send this note to the spammer and also his immediate supervisors (as deduced from his email address) including domain administrators and ISP Abuse Team.

The objectives of this noble application are as follows:

  1. 'Contain spammers efforts and help keep social networking communities clean and beautiful'.
  2. Notify the abuse team in a hilarious way to make their day-to-day chores of 'closing abusive accounts' lively and interesting.
I welcome your suggestions in improving this software. Please share your thoughts as suggestions to this post.
