Riley Pool dickrolls/meatspins the facebook ad review team lol

Mar 8, 2010

Riley Pool, an affiliate marketer and friend, got an interesting email from his facebook am and the ad review team over at facebook. Apparently he has the dickroll flash on the main index of his tracking domain or redirecting to makemoniesonline.  There have been plenty of times that I felt like dickrolling the review team for stupid reasons and what not but this is just hilarious. Somtimes the ad review team just deserves it. I’ve had ads that were disapproved saying that there was inappropriate language in the ad text when what it ended up being was that the persons age was in the title of the ad.  Just a fair warning whatever you do don’t visit the url below I warned you. Hi Riley, I work on the Ad Review team here at Facebook. I’d like to explain that when ads are submitted in large batches with different URLs, our system displays the root domain. In this case, the default is your index page which, at this time, features pornography. Our users never see this page, and we only see it as part of the way our system matches ads with landing pages. While you are by no means required to change this page, we’d greatly appreciate if you altered the content as a courtesy. Since we do review your ads on a regular basis, we are subject to this video. We apologize for any confusion. Thanks, Molly Online Sales Operations Facebook —–Original Message to Facebook—– From: Riley Pool () To: The Facebook Team Subject: Re: Pornography on tracking page You nor your users should ever see that page. And since I have unauthorized people trying to access that page and trying to fraudulently hack my tracking system I have my TLD redirected to that page. I monitor all traffic to that page in an attempt to track down these people who are trying to hack my tracking server so I would apreciate it if you don’t ever visit my main index page.

Well This one was weird. For some reason my best friend jordie and I were at some affiliate conference and flew down to Georgia in a private jet. After we arrived at the airport we got picked up in a maybach but the inside was huge like a party bus. I asked people who were already inside what they did and they said they were here for the conference which was weird cause I just came from one. We then arrived at this 5 star hotel and I got out and picked up my luggage which was a Louis Vuttion duffel bag which I threw on like a backpack. We went inside the hotel and it ended up being a river boat filled with offices. I was looking for elite clicks media and Ryan Machara. So the boat had a video system and they put me on all the monitors saying I was looking for ryan and for him to please come down to the lobby to which he did. He then walked me to their offices and told me they were going to hire me as intern and that we were goign to have a meeting with some other am’s and some other potential interns. He told me when they ask me what a virus was in one of the questions choose “taking a mouse apart” as the answer. I was like wtf ok. So there were a bunch of tests and eventually the meeting was over and we go to leave and my buddy jordie is in full motorcycle gear and said ok I’ll see you when you get home and I’m like dude we flew here you don’t have your bike how are you going to ride your bike back to pa from ga. At this point I woke up. Weird fucking dream I know, welcome to my...

Day 4 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Day 4 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Jan 19, 2010

Officially day 1 of Affiliate Summit. I got up did my new morning ritual with the tub and shit to get ready for the booths and meeting people. Ricardo, Ben, Jordie, and me all headed over to the show. I guess Nick got up early to meet with some friends that morning. The floor was buzzing with people left and right. I decided to make a pattern of walking around the floor to meet people. First I hit was the buy.at table they had some cool shit like headphones, later I found out they suck sound wise but nice try. I walked around and hit up azoogles booth, C2m, Mundo Medias, Getads, and mingled with some other people. It was nice to meet some networks face to face again. it had been a long time. I also got some face time with Jay Kim, Jason, and Roger from a4d. I haven’t seen those guys in such a long time. Jason and I had a beef at the end of last year during adtech london but that was squashed as it ended up being a big misunderstanding. Jason is really a stand up guy and I was glad we were able to put things in the past and move forward. So before I even got into the show I saw my am Wynonia from MediaTrust in the lobby but she was meeting with an affiliate and I said I’d catch up but wasn’t able to. Well now that we were back at Palms Place she texted me and I told her we were back at the suite and told her to come up and I’d show her around. Well after she got there ricardo, ben, jordie, me, wynonia, and Justin dupree aka Hyperion went carting at pole position that is directly right below Palms Place. Good time was had by all but I was told my ricardo a fattie going 45 mph in a cart was funny as hell. So after the carting session at pole position we decided to get ready for the evening festivities. We headed over to the palms by way of the skywalk and headed over to the interact 202 meeting...

Day 2 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Jan 17, 2010

So last night I take out my dell laptop and mac book and realize I left both chargers for them at home, FUCK. Not only that but I left my 300 dollar calf skin shoes made for fatties like me at home. Time to hunt down a Casual Male Big and Tall. So after getting around and making a movie for you guys of our suite Jordie and I headed on over to grab a new pair of shoes and pick up a rental car to putz around in till Monday. We come back to the suite and no sooner did that happen my boy BOFU (in the pic on the left) called me said he was in town. We made plans for lunch over at the rio so we could grab passes for ASW at 4pm. So I’m leaving Palms Place and my buddy Ricdes and Ben show up at the hotel so I take them up and we chill for a bit before we head on over to the rio. Over at the rio we do our thing get our passes go through the bag of schwag and find the hidious can of verve throw up. This shit is awful, like horrible, this ain’t going anywhere and this is the second time they have included it in the sch-wag bag and the worse part is the sugar free stuff. Seriously it tastes like throw up.  I’m gonna stick to redbull. So we decided to go to the seafood buffet at the rio for lunch/dinner but whats this BOFU doesn’t do seafood. What a jew that doen’t eat seafood? OK OK little back story, the guy is from Maryland and was force fed seafood as a kid living so close to the bay so he’s gotten sick of it. So while waiting in the lobby of the rio trying to figure out what to do Blue Hat Seo and his gf roll up and so did a bunch of other aff’s like Conv3rsion from wickedfire. Se we mingle and talk for a little but then meet up with BLUE RAP, Enigmabomb, and Brentener and we all head over to the startdust for dinner...

Day 1 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Jan 16, 2010

Well My buddy Jordie and I flew into LAS Friday night at 8pm and decided to head on over to Palms Place and check into our 2 bedroom suite to get settled in. We had a long flight and a total of 12 hours with layovers in philly and pheonix. Funny thing is Dennis Yu was on my plane from Pheonix to Las Vegas. I couldn’t believe that little shit was on my plane. Dude was wearing a checkerd shirt and a a red backpack. Looked like a scam version of William Hung from American Idol. After Settling in both of us were hungry so we took the sky walk over to the main part of palms to teh food court to decide on what to eat. We actually settled on Panda Express. Being half Chinese this ain’t real Chinese food but it will do. Vegas is an electric city, I love the smell of Vegas as you ride in from the airport, you can smell the buzz and the money in the air. The city is so electrifying at times. Since both Jordie and I had a long flight considering it was 11pm est and we left at noon est it was time to call it an early night but not without watching Hang Over on the tv. What better way to start our trip off in Vegas than watching good ole Hang...
