This is something new for me to have happen and honestly I have never seen it before.

I have a friend who I am making a surprise for on blogger.com. I am trying to notifiy everyone about this, its a surprise for this person, I am doing it through myspace mail.

When I go to send out the email about the blogger.com page with the link to it, I get a notice saying "this email didn't pass the spam filter" then I go to my main myspace page and it says my profile might have been phished and change my password.

But I can send email from my myspace account with a youtube link in it and plain email with no links in it but as soon as I include the blogger.com address I get this message.

Has this happened to anyone before or know why this happens?

Thanks

Re: Myspace Phishing Notice

Myspace is probably reading your email as spam. Maybe they have youtube as a safe link on their side, but blogger.com is not. That's what it shoulds like anyway... I would think you should try contacting myspace, and letting them know.

Re: Myspace Phishing Notice

Hi thanks for getting back about this.

I have written to myspace to see what they have to say about it as there is no other explanation I can see why it would happen only with the one link.

I am interested to read what they have to say!

Re: Myspace Phishing Notice

A friend of mine posted a link to her blog (can't remember if it was blogspot or blogger) through a bulletin and when I clicked on it, I was notified that the site I was trying to visit was a phishing scam. I know for a fact this link was NOT a phishing scam. I'm assuming that many people have used these blog websites in order to get passwords in the past.

Re: Myspace Phishing Notice

Yes your right and I never thought about that. I haven't heard anything back from myspace and doubt I will get an answer about it. I am trying to think of an alternative way to let everyone know about the blog site.

Re: Myspace Phishing Notice

I do notice if a site it competitive with Myspace they like to mark it as spam ! I know they did it to me also I had it say my accound was Phished and I know it wasn't I just change the PW and do it again sometimes having to change PW over and over ! now myspace is blocking tons of things ! you are no longer able to put a linked picture in a bulliten and send it out to add friends ! i used to be able to do that and yesterday they blocked it so when people clicked on the pics they went to myspace Home !

Myspace is some sense is too controlling over what we are doing , but No the less they are not going to stop me !

I also miss the fact I can't use Playlist on there anymore ! Does anyone know of a music player I can upload Mp3's too and play o my myspace profile ?

Re: Myspace Phishing Notice

Hi Jayson, after I posted here about this, I did write to them, as of right now they haven't gotten back to me about this, which I sort of figured they wouldn't but I thought I would try.

The more I think about it, I have to agree with you, it does seem if a site is in direct competition with them they mark it as spam which it shouldn't be that way at all. I wasn't aware of what you mentioned about bulletins either. I agree I miss Playlist that I use to have on my page and can't get the new one they are promoting to work for me at all!

If you find a player that works let us know!

Yep I have seen this player on a few different sites and it looks like playlist but not as fancy however you can use your music (as far as I know) and you can load a ton of songs. http://www.hypster.com/

That didn't even cross my mind but it makes sense now. How petty!

Re: Myspace Phishing Notice

another thing you could do, that i do when i pass out links is just break the link before sending, and copy it after you break it, like this,
Before:
http://www.geerkdrop.com
After:
http:// www . geekdrop . com
