When I opened my web server log today, I was surprised that many visitors are visiting my site via Yahoo! or Google just to find out who is golarger or golarger.com. (Yes! I intensionally didn’t hyperlink this URL since I don’t want to contribute more traffic to this spammer’s web site).
Why are people interested in golarger
It is obvious the 221 hits for searching the exactly the same term golarger is not just by chance that people happen to think about this term together. When the sudden increase of a word in my web log, I know something special happened. This is the case of golarger.com.
The truth is, golarger.com sent out Windows Messenger spam to a lot of people, asking them to visit their web site. I don’t know how many yet.
According to Work of Fiction, Brad Nugget received the popup box like this:

Brad, sorry that I cannot link to the orginal blog entry on the site since the archive link on this site does not work when I visited
Someone even posted the Network Monitor result of the analysis here.
Bad. Very bad!
As always, I hate NET SEND SPAM of any kind. If you are interested, please see my previous blog entries (the pages enjoy the highest hit rate of my whole blog site) on NET SEND SPAM.

Why searching for golarger leads to my page?
I was asking the same question then. This is another bad thing golarger did. Under my page of Stoping Net Send Spam, James left a comment like this:
I mean, honestly… www.golarger.com should be the target of the next “Code Red”…

I did notice this entry but didn’t pay much attention to this one. Now, the discussion on golarger.com is not popular on Internet, my page became one of the only 4 pages on Internet which contains golarge at the time this entry is created.
James, the bloggerr comment spammer
Again, beside being a “NET SEND SPAMMER”, the lovely James has another title, blogger comment spammer – who sends their advertisement to blogger’s comment system. I used the term from this article.
The battle against Net Send Spam (NSS) just begins
I thought everyone is hating spam, but Mr/Miss/Mrs Marketer told me the opposite thing. He commented in ths comment entry that
So, what do you do when you go to your mail-box outside of your home? Do you beat up the postman when he delivers a piece of junk mail or do you go to court because you received the latest sales flyer from Radio Shack or maybe you call ABC and NBC when your favorite movie is on TV and here comes a commercial. I think not! This whole Spam Issue makes me sick and you should be ashamed of yourself.
Let people advetise…there is nothing wrong with it…it is how you got your website on one of the top search engine pages….OH!, Maybe you forgot that!!!…
I also replied the entry stating
However, net send advertisement directly popup on MY screen no matter what I am doing. It is just like someone jumping into my room and paint their advertisement on MY wall. I don’t care if he/she do it on his wall or on his friends’ wall – as long their friend is OK for that. But I am angry if I see these kind of popups….
Hot debate on net send spam
Many other people joined the debate on the topic of Net Send Spam under my page on Net Send Spam – Yet Another Type of Spam. It is very interesting to see how people think of the same thing diffenetly.
I hope that I was able to maybe shed some light on this subject and enable you to look through the eyes of an Online Marketer who earns just over $3,000 per month Online. This is my small income to support six children of which three are being adopted by my beautiful wife and myself….
In a word, i think such spamming in the cyber world is not ethical, although one might make a large amount of money from it….
Yeah, now this ass marketer is telling us that if he has 3 adopted children and 3 of his own, he has the right to spam. so now if i go an adopt 6 kids, and have six of my own, i guess i can go and kill too, because i will be making a meanie 3000 dollars to feed my kids. what an asshole this guy is, and how stupid can he become ?? …
I am asking this board to please use another term
other than SPAM when addressing this form of advertising.
The word SPAM is incorrect, go and see for yourself. Spam relates ONLY to EMAIL…period!…
Well, first I have to say that I agree somewhat with marketer.
You pay for cable or satellite to see your movies on tv, then they send you their advertisements that they paid for.
It’s pretty much the same with the internet. You paid for access, and someone else is paying to advertise where you can see it….
Some boastingly thought this sort of SPAM should continue. I don’t think so. There are certain types of Junk mail it is illegal to send, there are some forms of advertising on the Television that is illegal (subliminal), even though everyone has a TV and is capable to receive subliminal messages, it has been deemed illegal. Net Send messages take processing cycles and comsume memory and network bandwidth, which means I have fewer resources to perform more effective functions. Ditto to Web Popups and Popbacks. These things consume resources and are unsolicited advertising….
In response to the pro spam ad post by Marketer, the patronising attitude of telling me to click “that little x” is not appreciated. Having to close the pop up is not the problem here, it’s the intrusive nature of the advertising. What right does anyone have to force a box with their useless little message onto your screen. Not only is it annoying, but it can potentialy destroy someones work….
Opt-in email advertising is not only ethical but also appropriate for small business owners in today’s internet society.
I could go on for a while – but I think that my point has been made – IF YOU DON’T WANT TO RECEIVE THE MESSAGES – THEN TURN THE OPTION OFF….
We don’t like it. If you love spam so much give us all your ip address, and we’ll spam the hell out of you, and we’ll do it using a dynamic IP…how do you like them apples?…
my friends and i have used net send for years at the university we attend. i was shocked to find out that people have began using such a useful tool as a means of mass advertising. i would like to point out to the readers out there that these people CLAIM to pay thousands, and if they are foolish enough they actually may, but in fact anyone with an extra 15 minutes can send these spam messages to every ip in the world for free….
Want to be heard of what you think?

I also welcome you to join the discussion to be heard – this is the first place every body goes if they search for “NET SEND SPAM” in Google, Yahoo! or MSN, at the time when this blog is written.
Thanks, Jian Shuo Wang. I found your site via Google (isn’t it nice?). I have been “invaded” by golarger.com’s annoying pop-ups, despite the fact that I am supposed to be protected by up-to-date Norton anti-virus & firewall, and have swept my system with anti-spyware software. I have a 24/7 cable broadband connection. How come the Big Boys (Symantec, Computer Associates) who make so much money out of us, have nothing to say?
you need your nuts cut off…….my kids use this computer.
Can anyone explain what “need your nuts cut off” mean? I don’t know the meaning of this term. But don’t get me wrong. I am not the person who sent out the golarger.com spam. I just wrote some articles to let people know how bad it is to send out the messenger spam (a.k.a. Net Send Spam) and how to stop it, so your kids won’t see these ad again.
DISCLAIMER: THIS SITE DON’T HAVE ANY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOLARGER.COM, EXCEPT I WAS SPAMMED BY THIS WEB SITE AND FEEL VERY ANGRY. THAT IS THE REASON I MENTION THIS WEBSITE AND TELL OTHERS HOW TO EITHER TURN OFF THE MESSENGER SERVICE OR FIGHT BACK.
keep this shit out of my computor
Please note: I am not the person who sent out the spam.
Please do not send message like “keep this shit out of my computor” on this page. Read twice to see the content of this page.
Let’s work together to fight back to this “shit” message out of OUR computer.
Thanks for writing about this, because I was very interested in finding out what was going on. When I got 301 hits in one day, the majority of which came from people searching for “golarger,” it was obvious that something strange was afoot. I’m glad you got to the bottom of it.
The anonymity of the web make people write REALLY retarded things. Thank you for posting this. When I did a Google search, yours is the only web site that I get for “golarger pop-up”. Getting VERY TIRED of these pop-ups. I used to work for a firewall company, and I am suprised that they are not doing anything about it. Then again, I quit working for them because of their inactivity, so I guess I’m not THAT surprised.

So, how do you get rid of it?
How can I stop this message. It pops up all the time. For one thing I am a single woman. I am sick of spam crap, especially those that are for MEN ONLY!
I have no Penis! I am single! I don’t need enlargement info or Viagra!
Lesley, be patient and read the links in the article, especially this one:
keep your mess off my screen
I am a women> I am tired of you sending your ad on my computer. I don’t need or see a need for you to sell such a product.
It is so funny (to see how furious some people can get). I am getting so many of these spams and other related junk mail that I automatically delete them without a second look. ;-)
Actaully, I feel a little bit bad when I see people keep complaining again and again on this board – I definitely can understand how furious they are. :0(
GREAT THEY NOT ONLY PISS US OFF AND WASTE OUR TIME……BUT WANT TO CREATE A MAILING LIST FROM THIS COMMENT FORM….I AM WRITING FCC.GOV WITH THIS ASSHOLES IP ADDRESS AND LET THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DEAL WITH HIM.
PEOPLE IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH ANY FORM OF COMMUNICATION WRITE FCC.GOV….THEY ARE VERY RESPONSIVE AND THEY WILL GET THE ABUSERS TO CALL YOU BACK PERSONALLY….
PEOPLE, THE REASON THIS GUY HAS A FORUM IS DEFINATELY NOT TO HELP YOU……THIS ASS IS USING “GOLARGER” AS A WAY TO GET FREE ADVERTISING TO HIS SITE..WHY DO YOU THINK HE PAID PREMIUM FOR YAHOO SEARCH LISTING.
jmyjm or BRWBRWB,
Don’t think of these fiction evil reasons behind this pure site, PLEASE. Read this article and it is specially written for you.
Here is the WHOIS search results for

Brooklyn, NY 11201
Thanks Joe. Actually, I have posted the physical location of the spammer by the WHOIS database information at http://home.wangjianshuo.com/archives/20030321_physical_location_of_golargercom.htm
I really like this, those messages are a bunch of shit, if you ask me. Thank you for not contributing to these assholes who pull this crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i want to go larger
This golarger and similar spam, regardless of how it’s delivered is more than simple annoying advertisement. It is harrassment. Some people are just as offended by this as others are with racial remarks. The people sending the spam should do some jail time.
First, to the spammer who apparently has to spam to feed his kids. “Get a real job and you can earn more.”
As for the term spam, it DOES NOT apply to only email, in fact any electronic message is spam if:
(1) the recipient’s personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients; AND (2) the recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; AND (3) the transmission and reception of the message appears to the recipient to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.
If what you are doing is so innocent, why don’t you, as one poster pointed out, give us your IP address so we can respond in kind.
Last, it would be nice if Mickysoft would simply put more control on the messenger service, such as a filter for IPs that are allowed to use the service, or an authentication system so only verified users are allowed access.
i just be a beginner and i don’t know anything to do ….how stupid am i!!!!but i try to find out to make spam ,,,,neccessary for my life ,,,if anyone have enough generous,,,,tell me pleas and god bless u!!
