So, it’s now half-term holiday, finally some time to relax yea!
After that disastrous ask.fm spam campaign on last Sunday night, and also mounting pressure from some of my friends and even from the head of key stage 5 of my school, I have decided on the future of my ask.fm account.
That future is, the account is to be closed down, probably permanently. As you may have noticed, the RSS feed that shows all questions and answers and a link to my ask.fm profile have disappeared, and the ask a question box and the very same RSS feed on my website has also been taken down. Soon I will get rid of the app on my iPhone, and, on the morning of February 18th, which is the Chinese New Year, I will close down my account, for good. I think I have had enough of these ask.fm spam messages; I just worked out rough calculations, and, according to my rough estimates, there would have been around 550-650 questions and answers, without the trolls as I would have gone in and respond to daily questions. This means that over 2000 messages are from the trolls!
Now, after my ask.fm account have been oficially closed, the trolls will no longer be able to annoy me, without me knowing. Yes, this blog may still be used for that purpose, but…since they have to fill out their names, I can still identify who they are, except for when they decided to put in random names, but…honestly, WordPress comments are at least a quadrillion times easier to manage than ask.fm questions and answers, as, unlike ask.fm, Ii can just go into the admin page, go into the comments section, perform a few clicks, and then all troll comments would be gone; in fact these comments would have required my prior approval anyway, so I can just reject all of them as spam.
The trolls may also go back to annoying me on Facebook, but that’s very risky for the trolls themselves as I will know exactly who they are, and thus can easily trace them down at school later, shall I think that they deserved to be confronted by me in person.
Anyways, that’s it for now…
