SCAMLAND

Nigerian spammers keep on duping the dopey:

The long-running internet-based rort has netted more than $7 million from Queenslanders alone …

Among those being duped are financial advisers, lawyers and university professors, and one person had put $2.2 million into the hands of scammers over the past two years.

Which brings to mind Queenslanders Margo Kingston and Wayne Sanderson. How is Webdiary coping without them? Let’s take a look:


We published 35 new posts in January … income in January was $2862, plus the cash GST refund of $523 as per the last accounts. The rate of income was not (quite) sufficient to cover expenditure, so the Directors gave a month’s notice to Hamish in mid-January.

Judging from those numbers, each post—each futile, dull, worthless post—cost nearly $100. Webdiary might be the single worst business model in publishing history.

UPDATE. Webdiary general manager David Roffey is now complaining about “the number of unpaid hours I’ve put in since September”. And these people thought they could fix Australian democracy.
