Porn spam sinks to new low

There are various levels of immorality on the Internet that people with no shame have exploited for their own ends:

  • Spam: The broadcast of messages for a purely commercial purpose
  • Porn: Exploiting our animal desires by peddling pictures of naked women
  • Plagiarism: The appropriation of someone else’s artistic work as your own without permission
  • Tabloidism: The exploitation of catastrophic events to draw attention to yourself

Well now we have all the above rolled into one:

Dawson YouTube spam

Someone has taken a YouTube Dawson College shooting tribute video (one of those lame wire-service-still-photos-combined-with-sad-song montages) and re-uploaded it with an ad for a porn site at the bottom.

The reason? The original video had “college” and “girl” in its description.

Why don’t porn spammers have better quality control?
