If a spammer needs a reliable image hoster–Picoodle

For the past week, I and a friend, have been trying to reach someone, anyone at image hosting site Picoodle and surprise…no one ever replies and they do tell you that it may take them 3 weeks to reply to any inquiry.

So with that attitude, I think it’s safe to say that if you’re a malware purveyor or spammer, this is a great site to post your stuff. If it does take them three weeks to remove a post, think of all the infected/conned people you can generate.

For reference, Picoodle is part of Funky Llama Productions. Funky Llama has many sites and is one of the companies responsible for many MySpace layouts. They no doubt provide Picoodle to help MySpacers with their image hosting needs which isn’t a bad thing.

However, the number of spam posters on Craigslist and other major board sites whose images are tied to Picoodle are no greater than the number that come from Flickr, ImageBucket, and other image hosting sites. Picoodle’s advantage to spammers is how slow they are to act to remove spam images.

So spammer, malware purveyor, and other ne’er do’wells…if you want to have your images hosted and not removed for at least a month, I suggest you try Picoodle. They don’t seem to want to remove anything.

I have spent the last 10 years devoted to fighting people who abuse the internet for their own personal gain. I cannot stand people who protect them.

  4. Most colleges provide you with web space as part of being a student. Granted, it may not be much space but you could check into that and use it. If that is not available, I would ask your IT department which image hosting companies you can and cannot use.

    UPDATE for everyone: Picoodle FINALLY made the spammer who was the target of this article, move to a new provider. He is now using an image hosting service in Greece who questions why they should be asked to remove images that violate their terms of service.
