SNAP! Custom Clothing in Seattle Are LIARS Do NOT Do Business with Them

The other night I picked up a copy of a great little community newspaper published by Pacific Publishing called City Living Seattle.  There were some really good articles and an ad for a t-shirt printing company called SNAP Custom Clothing.

SNAP! Custom Clothing'w website says "We Beat ANY Competitor's Price", but they had no prices on their site for printed shirts that I needed - so I sent an inquiry.  "Ibad S." responded today giving me a quote that is way too high for two shirts.  The first competitor site I went to offered a much better price, free shipping and no tax - but I prefer to do business locally when reasonable, so I gave him a chance to MATCH the price.  He wouldn't.

I really, really, detest liars - especially website that lie - it's too bad that Seattle's SNAP! Custom Clothing posts a BIG lie on their front page.  I do not recommend that ANYONE do business with SNAP! Custom clothing in Seattle - they give Seattle (and all businesses a bad name).

Shame on SNAP! Custom Clothing!  Call them at (206) 682-0686 to let them know what you think - or if you like to do business with liars ...

WAYN is NOT the Way to Go in Social Media - Calling for a WAYN Boycott

Although I have unsubscribed numerous times - and never actually signed up, I continue to get unsolicited and unwanted SPAM from a 'social media' site called .

Today they sent me a 'free VIP membership for 2 weeks' email and I'm really very sick of hearing from them.  All they want to do is sell memberships for crap you can do free on many other social media sites and do not appear to have an original idea in their brains at all.

Anyone else having problems with WAYN?

I say boycott the damn spammers at WAYN!!!

What say YOU?

Scammer at (512) 827-0015 Offering 'Automated Voice Calling' - Must Be Stopped

I got a message on my cell phone this morning when I was at the gym, from a guy named 'Mike' at (512) 827-0015 saying he wanted to talk to me about Solavei.

I called him back and got stuck on a 10 minute voice message about a 'lead generating system'.  Turns out Mike is selling a software package for $297 that will automatically call up to 10,000 phone numbers an hour and get you unlimited leads.  Apparently the software 'scrapes' phone numbers from search engines, Craigslist and a bunch of other places.  Once someone buys the software, they are then able to resell it.

This is TERRIBLE for EVERY legitimate business person and must be stopped.  It's already risky enough to answer your phone with all the other scams out there - but this gives real internet marketers a bad name - and cannot generate very strong leads - at least not leads from people I want to be in business with.

If you have any suggestions on how to get rid of this crap, I would appreciate hearing about it.

If you want to help.  Call 'Mike' at (512) 827-0015 - don't waste your time listening to the message, but hit the star button and leave him a message letting him know what YOU think.  I certainly did.

Mentioning People in Your Bloggers Posts - Much Like Linking to a Google+ Profile

I had a cool little 'news item' show up on my infrequently used Blogger dashboard.

It was a post by +Malte Ubl called Mention people in your posts with Google+

+Malte Ubl  +Robert Scoble

The post says:
To mention someone, just type “+” before their name while you’re using the Blogger post editor.

Not sure if this is working for me - or even if I am in the Blogger post editor ...

Seems like a cool feature - but perhaps the beginning of having to block many more people ..?

YOUR thoughts?
