I've created a new word, "Scamhole".

Noun: English, vulgar slang.

Meaning: Scamming asshole who preys on gullible and naive people, for financial gain.

Although G.A. does give you some useful information, here's an example of its failings as a tool to give you the most vital information:

A site like will help you see who links to your site. If you spot something like linking to you, you'll know where your authority boost has come from.

Topic Search Engine Explanation
Posted 18 Nov 2017 04:56

I've spent over a decade, off and on, studying SEO.

If you PM me your site URL I will take a look for you.

Despite all the mysticism (deliberately spread by people employed by SEO companies), SEO actually boils down to 2 things essentially, content, and inbound links. On-page factors like page titles, meta descriptions, keywords etc., are secondary.

You most probably have a link from an authority site to your blog, which shot it up the rankings as you've now gained "google trust". The article may have been published on a big site, and given you credit (and a link).

I use FileZilla which is superb as a standalone FTP client. Free and open source. :)

That's the one I downloaded too. Bright minds think alike! 3601 3601

A word of warning about filezilla. Even though I unchecked "install McAfee, change default search engine to Bing etc.", it did change it.

I had to reset IE, FF and Chrome as a result. violent1

Topic WARNING: Skype Scammers / Sextortion / Blackmailers
Posted 18 Nov 2017 00:43

We've had a couple of people try this scam on on the site recently, and I want to warn our membership about it.

The scam plays on people's gullibility, and those who worry about being "found out" (shamed) about visiting an (any) adult site.

How it works:

1) Scammer creates a profile. Posts pics of someone attractive (probably not them):

2) Befriends as many guys (typically) as possible, in a short space of time.

3) Asks them to go on Skype.

4) Does not appear, but records the video / images of the person being scammed.

5) Scammer posts the video (with associated person's Skype / real name) on Youtube, then demands money.

6) The gullible victim who doesn't want to be associated with the site, sends over an amount via paypal.

If you're at all worried about being associated with an adult site such as this, or any other, DO NOT open up a video chat or send pictures to anyone you don't trust.

The same goes for posting images of yourself on your profile which are viewable to the public. If you are fine with anyone seeing you are here, then go ahead. If you want to post images of yourself, but keep them private, set up a private gallery, and make sure only people you absolutely trust, have access. Once you post an image in the public domain, it's impossible to control who uses it for whichever nefarious purpose.

DO NOT pay anyone anything. Even if you are using your real name on Skype, and they have a video / images of you, what are they likely to do with it? Report the scammer to Youtube and have their account canned.

I will contact Skype now, with screenshots of the scam. The member will also be reported to the police. Paypal will also be involved, as it's abuse of their system. The scammer will need to have provided them with a bank account, so the authorities should be able to track them down, and make an arrest.

This can happen to you on ANY website.

Here's an example of a twist on this, where the victim was snared on Facebook. The BBC reported on it last year: It happens on mainstream sites, as well as those classified as "adult".

It's been going on quite some time. Here's some useful advice about staying safe online.

And an excellent guide to safe social networking .

Be careful with your privacy people, everywhere online!

My son is a programmer and told me to switch. I’m computer challenged and believe the old adage, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I still use internet explorer. But I drive a Telsa not a model T.

The Tesla is an excellent choice for the planet Chuck! Not to mention the crazy performance.

Tony Seba is a man who knows an awful lot on the subject of electric vehicles and disruptive technologies. He thinks 90% of all new vehicles produced around the globe in 2030, will be electric. And why not? 90% fewer parts, the battery costs will be a fraction of what they are now. No pollution whatsoever. Quite brilliant.

Musk wasn't the first to come up with the idea, but he's a pioneer, and I love his drive to push things forward for the good of the planet and future generations. My next car will be an all electric, if the price comes down enough. I think it's maybe 2 years away before that's the case, with these giga factories coming out.

I got distracted there, sorry. It's a passion of mine, helping the planet, ecosystems, and investing in companies who have that vision in mind.

Back to browsers, no issues with FF other than the FTP file transfer one. I have a backup file uploader so I'm using that. Shame FireFtp doesn't work with the new Quantam FF though. It was my favourite uploader and easiest to use by far.

This is timeless (and brilliantly done).

After noticing the scores in the competitions this year, and the people who are "4 bombing" them to hopefully gain some kind of competitive advantage (It doesn't work, I delete all votes from other competition authors, and note who's trying to sabotage other people's average scores), it's time for a bump!

A word of warning. I just tried to use FireFTP to transfer some files to a server. It no longer works with Firefox Quantum.

As a browser, it seems excellent.

I am going to lock this thread now as it's veered so far off track, the original message is getting lost.

I should have perhaps posted it as an "Announcement" and locked it from the off, but thought there may be some pertinent questions raised (which didn't really happen!).

Thank you for all your feedback everyone!

I've done what you asked, Nicola. I went out of my comfort zone and wrote a Monster Sex story. And, lo and behold, it was good enough for a Recommended Read. Thanks to Stormdog.

I look forward to reading it! =d>

It seems really fast to me.

But then IE has always been sluggish, and chrome keeps giving me mithering messages.

FF claim to be faster than both: It installed over my old version, in less than a minute, seemlessly.

This Omnium badge discussion is taking up far too much of people's time.

I / we have over 4,000 back catalogue stories to skim through, as the recovered category contained some drafts too.

That will take weeks, and is a much higher priority than a profile badge.

How about thinking up story ideas for the new categories instead? Go out of your usual comfort zones, write something totally original that blows people away. That would be a much more positive use of everyone's energy and time.

I am still hoping nicola will make it an optional, and I can get the badge without it

I think that's fair enough to be honest.

Having given this matter consideration, I don't really want to have more than one badge with the word, "Omnium" in it.

How about, on top of the existing Ominium badge (translation from Latin, meaning "All") we add a badge for authors published in 80%+ of our categories? That way, you can leave out any categories you don't wish to write in.

There are 51 categories at present.

If we introduce a new badge, what should we call it?

"Naughty 40" - published in 40+ categories.

"Eager Beaver"



Any suggestions?

I did. Although it wasn’t for sex. We knew we wanted to be together. Now we are engaged to be married in March. Oh, and yes. It is great. Regaeman Man

I think more likely, you'll end up with a lot more entitlement from sub-par authors - "I paid you to publish my stories" etc.

If a story isn't up to the required standard, it isn't going to be published. I don't take into consideration the person's membership level. Standards need to be upheld or the site goes to pot.

Topic Is there another story category you'd like to have on Lush?
Posted 10 Nov 2017 01:36

We'd omitted "Horror" by mistake, so that's 11 new categories.

I don't think we'll be adding any new ones for the foreseeable future.

Feel free to keep sensible suggestions coming though.
