Namecritic Scam's ban didn't last forever

Namecritic Scam's ban didn't last forever

On the 13th of January, Namecritic Scam was banned from Twitter. This was a sad day for Namecritic Scam, following our meaninful success in attacking Chris’ reputation among his nearest and dearest followers. Now, I am able to reveal that our profile is back up and running. I sent my first tweet in Chris’ direction. I patiently await a response.

Twitter provided a great way to make Chris’ fans aware of who we are and what we do. The volume of traffic has been relatively impressive. Just as Namecritic Scam destroys Saint Christopher in the search engine results pages, things are certainly heading in that direction on Twitter too. At the time of writing this post, we have 107 followers to his 160. Chris likes to pretend he understands social media, much the same way as he claims to understand SEO. An internet marketer who understands neither doesn’t have much to offer their clients.

Chris’ tweets usually involve him pimping one of his blogs. The blogs cover such insightful topics as: “Things To Do In The Elevator”. He also tweets links to political pieces. That’s all well and good provided you can do two things: provide an exclusive or offer insightful opinion. As Chris works as a real estate assistant most of the time, and scams people the rest, it’s unlikely he will have much time to work his White House sources. Chris likes to kick and scream, but insightful commentary can only come from measured thought and clear communication. Chris is incapable of either. His writing is so poor, Namecritic Scam questioned his claims to having been a journalist in a investigative piece dated January 30th, 2009:

His writing is plagued with comma splices and disagreeing pronouns and antecedents, not to mention those dastardly split infinitives. To put things in perspective, that’s the same as a math teacher who thinks pie is something you eat for a nutritious snack.

What role did Chris play in getting us banned from Twitter? According to a Sam Freedom article there are four primary reasons why this could occur. In our instance, number 2 and 4 look most likely:

  1. you’ve followed a large number of people in a short amount of time
  2. there is a small number of followers compared to number of people you’re following
  3. the updates consist mainly of links and not personal updates
  4. a large number of users blocking the profile and writing in with spam complaints

As our number of followers increases, so too does our resistance to getting banned. Namecritic Scam’s back in the game.
