Continuous spammer with the same tired, old "Search Engine Optimization" scam a million other skeezy outfits pitch. Harvests addresses from Whois records. Claims their spam is "CAN-SPAM" compliant... but they send their spam from China because they know it isn't. Web site also hosted in China, of course.

Gives an address at 1000 Fifth Street, Suite 200 - G9, Miami Beach, FL 33139 but no phone number, of course. They probably don't have an actual office or phone. They have an email address: *******@mail.com

Terrible BBB report: https://www.bbb.org/south-east-florida/business-reviews/search-engine-optimization-services/domain-seo-service-registration-in-miami-beach-fl-90350684/reviews-and-complaints

It's yet another web site from MG-Dot Advertising, the same people behind conversionseo.cn, conversion-seo.cn, instabuygram.cn, instadotgram.com and assorted other clone sites.

Socialflowgroup.com is "MG-Dot Advertising" (that's how they identify themselves on their web site) the reason they register their web site(s) under this and other domain names is that they're constantly sending spam and therefore have to switch hosts and domain names frequently. Spam is for "SEO" services, buying "real and legit" Instagram/Twitter/Facebook followers and similar sketchy services. Their other web sites include:
alexa-packages.com

I just received spam email from these folks. Phone: *******416
It's an unlisted number (interesting, for a business, don't you think!) in Grand Isle, Louisiana. Alleged business name is "Sprint SEO Solutions" but there is no business registered in the State of Louisiana under that name. Unsurprising for several reasons, one of which is because Sprint the telecommunications company would have their lawyers all over them in a heartbeat if it were true. I'm going to send an email to Sprint to make sure they know about it.

Web site: www.sprintseosolution.com
Web page, a cheap canned design with off-the-shelf stock photos and a badly designed custom logo. Has their phone number and email but (surprise!) no physical address. Written material on the site has semi-illiterate drivel such as "Is every Business needs SEO?"
Web site states they're a Google Partner. A check with Google reveals this is not true.
Web site states they're a BBB Accredited Charity (yes, charity). This claim is also false. They're not even a BBB member at all.
Web site states they're a Bing Ads Accredited Professional. This too is a lie.
Web site also has "Forbes" and "Inc 5000" logos but no indication as to what they're supposed to mean. The links on all their accreditation logos go nowhere.

The "Dear Rich" intellectual property blog should be a regular stop for anyone interested in copyright and trademark law. He's a practicing IP lawyer who answers questions that are emailed in to his blog. What's more, he's actually an entertaining writer who makes this stuff interesting. If you're an artist or business, come to think of it who ever deals with or wonders about copyright issues give this blog a try.

The "Respectful Insolence" blog is loved by scientists and doctors and loathed by quacks and charlatans. That's worth 5 stars from me any day!

The pseudonymous "Orac" is an oncologist/surgeon who covers the world of quacks and fakers who want to line their own pockets peddling dubious or outright dangerous "alternative" cures. Thoroughly researched and impeccably constructed articles detail the trends in quackery in all fields of medicine, but cancer in particular.

I found this site while looking for information on a particular Photoshop technique. I didn't find my answer here, that's for sure! I did find a collection of the most vacuous though beautifully illustrated material I've ever found on the subject of photography. Tutorials that are so vague as to be meaningless. Interviews that are nothing but self-promoting twaddle. But then I got to the bottom if it: They have a section in which you can BUY so-called "press credentials". As a photographer who has covered plenty of events with legitimate press credentials I can assure you that any credentials you obtain by buying them will be laughed at by anyone who deals with the media in any fashion.

Beware & avoid.

Faultless service and good, fast tech support. I've had my site hosted by Pair for over 10 years now and have no plans to change. Not the cheapest out there but I learned the hard way that cheap web hosting is definitely a "get what you pay for" situation.

Have you ever worked retail? Or known someone who has? Or just witnessed outrageous behavior by customers at retail businesses? Even if you answered Yes to all those questions you won't be prepared for the tales you'll find on NotAlwaysRight. No, the customer isn't always right.

Entertaining and, I hope, sympathy-evoking, stuff.

Great coverage of MotoGP and World Superbike racing. They used to have more coverage of U.S. racing, but the reduction in coverage is mainly due to the decline (due to horrible mismanagement) of the sport in the U.S. than any shortcomings of Superbikeplanet.com

Most MotoGP races get reports written by Julian Ryder, a renowned journalist and TV commentator. The podcasts are usually brilliant (go seek out the early ones from back in the days when people were just working out what podcasts were and what they could do).

The main writer and site owner, Dean Adams, is a sharp writer who doesn't mince words and calls things the way he sees them. Very refreshing. The site doesn't have any whiny "Please Donate" buttons and, blessfully, hasn't turned itself into a "blog" there is no "comments" section. Wonderful.

As so often is the case with niche sports like motorcycle racing, it's a small, independent site that does the best job or reporting the news. Moto Matters has excellent writers and photographers and produces timely, lively reporting year round. I like the unbiased and unsensationalist nature of their coverage (are you reading this, MCN?) level-heading thinking presented in clear, thoughtful writing. Good stuff always. Oh, and they also police their comments section firmly but not oppressively, so it's blessfully free of the troll-posts and fanboy rants common to many a competing forum.

Coverage of the World Superbikes Championship could be beefed up a little as far as I'm concerned, but it's still better than average in that department.

If you're an independent or freelance creative in photography, design, art, music, web design or any similar endeavor you'll appreciate clientsfromhell.net and its true (as far as I can tell!) stories of, well, clients from hell. I teach in this field and actually use the clientsfrom hell.net site to show my students what kind of stunts clients and employers can pull. It's entertainment and education all in one package.

A couple of minor caveats:
It's best to browse clientsfromhell.net with the JavaScript turned OFF in your browser to avoid the highly intrusive pop-ups constantly asking you to register at the site or sign up for something.
Avoid the comments section at all costs. There's an awful lot of superiority complex in there.

Just read the main posts and skip the comments and you'll enjoy Clients from Hell. At least in small doses: Even though it's funny, you'll find the sad reality of freelancing a little depressing if you overindulge!

Good prices and service but, man, they love to spam your email address as soon as you place an order. I now order from them only using a throwaway email address.

800notes is the best site I've found for getting information on unknown callers. It's also a treasure trove of useful information and advice on dealing with unwanted calls and callers. The forum interface could use some improvement as it's often difficult to find the newest post in a long discussion, but that detracts little from the site's tremendous usefulness. One of the few web sites I keep in the Firefox "Bookmarks Toolbar".
