Short note for frequent visitors, your humble (and ill, so therefore not logged on 24/7 like normal) hostess is getting way too much SPAM lately.
Seems a spambot came by and picked up all available adresses on the site and sold it off to others. Due to the avalanche of identical spams sent to important adresses such as webmaster-at-commercial-archive, webmaster-at-ad-rag.com, images-at-ad-rag.com, info-at-ad-rag.com, Adgrunts-at-ad-rag.com (the news-report list) and even must-exist adresses such as "hostmaster" and "postmaster" on several of my domains, I have had to shut these adresses down.
Now, if you wish to contact us here, submit news via the the big submit news button in the top menubar on the far right. If you wish to email images for Badland - send them to hostmaster (I'll leave you to guess which domain.. You are smarter than a bot right.)
Also, the mail all authors at once list, is now at adgrunt. No S. Cool?
I reccomend all of you who share the same problem to sign up with http://spamcop.net/ and to systematically kill each spam that arrives in your inbox - what I normally do. Don't let these fucks get away with it.
their blacklist is a godsend and worth supporting. watch out for the Koreans. woop.
Ah, Ruby, you nipless plump anti-Barbie. It's been in every Body Shop window since 1998. First you tick off Mattel, and now you're banned from the Hong Kong rail system. Something about pubic hair & nipples. Or the distinct lack of either. (No, this isn't a banned ad per se, it's just refused from certain media venues, but the Hong Kong transit system is large enough to count for a sorta-ban).
Anti Roddick says it best;
Big Magazine is following in the footsteps of other magazines, like wallpaper* - and opened an ad agency. Who's next? Playboy? They could do the cheap beer ads. Or maybe they do? Kidding of course - Big has some big names with them. Click the read more.
Boards magazine (US) is proud to present the third annual First Boards Awards, which honors emerging talent. Confusing with all these digits, the third annual first awards will be held in NYC March 2002. There, say that ten times fast.
This year's awards will honor international talent in four categories: directors, editors, animators and composers.
Interesting to note is the large Multinationals march across the world and the advantages they might have in different markets. Did you know that Coca-Cola corporation, Crafts Food, Nestle, Unilever and other like them don't pay taxes in Denmark - despite flogging quite a lot of products in .dk?
Scam ads' place in Cannes
By Claudia Penteado
Scam ads have gotten out of control in Cannes. But it's not just the scam artist agencies that should take the blame. It's little surprise that things ended up like this. Let me explain: for many countries in the world „ like Brazil, Spain, Argentina, Japan, China „ from the very beginning the Cannes Festival has been essentially Anglo-Saxon. The jury has historically been made up by Americans and Europeans (usually the British). (read more of this article..)
