Jason Calacanis, the blowhard blogger, has called spammers and SEOs "slime buckets," "snake oil salesman," and "low-class idiots." He has now joined them, however. Calacanis has been flooding inboxes with unsolicited spam advertising his company's Mahalo Follow software, a browser extension. And here we thought Mahalo was supposed to combat spam, not produce it. Reports are coming in across the Web that people who have never used Mahalo nor requested information about Mahalo are receiving spam from Calacanis. "Apparently 'Mahalo' is Hawaiian for 'douchebag,'" says one irate spam recipient. If you've received the message, do what a responsible Internet citizen like Jason Calacanis would do: report the abusive spam and delete it.
