I just got locked out of my MySpace account for 15 minutes, due to, “excessive login failures.”
What’s funny is that my login failed once, and that was because the connection got reset, since I was logging in from a dial-up connection. So, I guess one login failure is excessive.
I was just talking with my friend Dennis the other night about whether or not MySpace has hit its peak. I think it probably has. Don’t get me wrong, I love to use it to keep in touch with people, but it just seems so commercialized. I can’t really blame Rupert Murdoch for trying to monetize the ridiculous amount of traffic that comes to the site, but as I’ve said before, they should put a little programming intelligence behind their ads.
Who will be the next MySpace? It will definitely be interesting to see.
