Today’s TECH talk...
It seems some people are not used to or have never seen the FAKE malware message
that OFTEN ends up on Windows computers. The one that shows up blue looking like
its really from Microsoft and that warns you that your computer has been affected
and that you should not turn the computer off and that you have to contact them or else
you will have your computer shut down.
How many of you know what I am referring to? I get it all the time for instance when watching movies and tv shows on series.net and other places. THIS IS A FAKE MESSAGE and can easily be avoided by installing or activating ad blocker on your computer.
THIS IS NOT A REAL MESSAGE FROM MICROSOFT AND IF YOU MAKE THE MISTAKE OF
BELIEVING IT AND CLICKING IT THAT IN FACT IS WHEN THE VIRUS OR MALWARE
GETS INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER. Always ignore it.
BUT the point of this is that this and other malware can easily be introduced to your computer
via an email from someone ( WHO MAY NOT EVEN KNOW THEIR COMPUTER IS AFFECTED) or by a corrupted photo file. And countless other ways.
I DO KNOW however that my partner and I HAVE never ever had an issue with anyone's site we
have built for them getting a virus or malware based on content or code we have put in a site.
This morning someone informed me that they went to one of the ladies sites in my portfolio and that a message similar to the one described above popped up. OR perhaps its the one that you get now when you access sites that are not SSL encrypted where it warns you about entering the site safety ( THIS MESSAGE OCCURS WHEN A PERSON'S SSL certificate runs out. WE install SSL for free initially and then you can elect to buy your own SSL or you can pay us for SSL each time it expires or you can pay it yearly. AGAIN its not a virus you just need your SSL updated) but at any rate the point I am making is AT NO TIME IS IT DUE TO THE WAY A SITE WAS BUILT OR DUE TO ANYTHING WE HAVE ADDED THAT A SITE causes this issue on your computer.
JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN THAT WAY.
If you come to me and say I need a banner or badge added to your site to post on another site , please be aware that sometimes THOSE do include malware or tracking that can cause issue on others computers.
But again as a designer I do not know beyond the code you ask me to put in whether or not a sites code for its banner contains malicious content.
BE assured and rest assured. WE take security and SEO seriously here and to be honest GOOGLE will avoid and disqualify a site from ranking that uses malicious or dangerous code SO OF COURSE WE WOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO ALLOW IT.
So ladies , please be mindful that there are ALL kinds of ways your computers and phones can become affected.
I SUGGEST INSTALLING AVAST OR AVG ANTIVIRUS AND SCANNING AND CLEANING YOUR DEVICES OFTEN ,ESPECIALLY WITH ALL THE THINGS WE AS COMPANIONS OPEN EACH DAY ON OUR DEVICES.
Everyone have a great weekend!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Let me be absolutely clear. Your vacations, birthdays, etc are not of my concern when me and my partner are waiting to be paid for a completed project. This is a business. Same as your landlord, your power company etc don't care about things like that.
I care if your child is sick, if you are sick, if someone died or its something of that nature. In which case then you need to contact me or have a friend contact me and let me know that you need more time to pay. Or even if something happened financially and you simply need more time. I am reasonable in real emergencies and when people are considerate.
I assume that a vacation is planned. And your deadline for site launch is also planned as I state it once we begin working and I keep my clients updated.
I will not tolerate, especially since my partner works just as hard on your sites as I do rudeness, and disrespect when my partner needs to be paid.
And yes if you come to me as a referral I WILL contact that referral and ask questions or tell them to make sure you know the importance of paying me. Especially if that referral is a friend who I have done lots of work for. I feel they should know when someone they referred is causing me or my partner issue. I won't apologize for that.
I was alteast classy enough to keep it private , to not do it publicly and to not name, names. Other people would have been alot more rude than I was. Some of you do NOT understand the time and work that goes into creating a website.
Be considerate! If you are going on a vacation pay your bill before you leave.
I am a professional. This is a businness. Imagine you working a job and coming in to get your paycheck and someone telling you "Oh the boss if on vacation, he'll pay you when he gets back"
I hate to be like this but I am nearing a time when I am going to begin making ladies pay full web fees upfront just to avoid this kind of mess and drama.
Thanks for understanding
May 25 2018
SO HERE ARE MY NEW RULES:
I RETAIN THE RIGHT TO HANDLE EACH CLIENT, EACH CASE ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS.
Some things that from here on out are likely to make you be a full pay:
1. You are flaky and back and forth on whether or not you want a site.
2. You seem to be a person who is not very considerate of professionals time.
3. You are someone who hops from web person to web person.
4. You have not been referred to me by anyone I know and trust.
NOW if you really need a site in some cases I may still work with you if you cannot pay full amount upfront BUT with the following as a non negotiable rule:
You are given a deadline for when to expect your site completed. That is also your BILL DUE DATE. If you do not pay within 48 hours of the day of site release from here on out from May 25 2018 you will have to add an additional 30 percent penalty fee and THAT IS PER DAY with the maximum penalty at 200.00 additional dollars. The penalty fee will never go above 200.00
ALSO, I reserve the right to stop working on a project if any mental , verbal abuse or disrespect occurs and people behaving in that fashion will NOT be refunded.
Lastly until FULL payment is given you will NOT be given the login info for your site.
I will give 2 hours for you to look through your site and make a list of edits on release day. After which payment is expected or I lock site back up till we are paid.
I am not trying to rob anyone, I am however going to teach some of you to
respect my time and my partners time and work.
After dealing with what has to have been the worst all around web/assistant client I have had in all my yrs of helping ladies in the industry , I must add the following to my work rules.
1. I do not care if you pay me a million, at no time will I put up with anyone's verbal or emotional abuse. Especially when they are not willing to sit down and do the work and make an honest contribution to their own business. I do not tolerate disrespect from anyone.
2. If you do not follow directions OR if you do not do as you , yourself have agreed to do in regard to you web content and in the format requested. THEN ANY MISHAPS are your fault not mine.
3. If after several warnings ,in writing you do NOT supply me and my partner w things we have asked you for / and or you are belligerent, disrespectful or behave like a spoiled child ...and IF it is beyond the 15th of the month..YOU ARE NOT , WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO ANY REFUND It is up to you to be organized, to have some sense of direction and to do as asked to help your project along.
4. Let me repeat an earlier one again.... I do not care if its a million you have paid me. I have protected more girls, done more for the sex work community than some of you troublemakers ever will. My reputation is solid and I WILL NOT BE TALKED TO CRAZY OR DISRESPECTED by any of you.
Basically be sure you can behave like and adult and be a respectful adult before you hire me. Otherwise it will not work.
** I never want to come off as unprofessional, or lose my temper or my cool, but I have spent many years in these trenches, and I have earned my respect and I simply will not tolerate anyone, no matter who they are disrespecting me, when it is THEM who was NOT organized.***
I know you all know me to be a fair, genuine ,professional web professional and escort.
As we all know the rights of everyone on the internet are being challenged and I am sure most of you all are aware by now of the new ridiculous laws that will pretty much make it illegal to host sites of sex work, our websites etc on US soil.
I offer most of you hosting thru me and will continue to do so. BUT I will have to move all our sites offshore to ensure myself as well as all of you, do not end up having our sites shut down.
I host close to 20 sites. Transferring hosting offshore is not going to be an issue BUT paying migration for every site to servers will cost up to 100 per hour per site.
I am giving this email notice to you so that you all can be prepared to contribute 100 towards moving your site offshore. Id love to be able to afford to pay migration for everyone but its just not possible.
Once I find out the safest, best offshore hosting company who I feel I can trust with my business I will contact you all to share the info.
Its a damn shame we cannot work and thrive in peace. The US govt really sucks now days.
I will be emailing you with an update by the end of next week.
But this is something we must do to protect everyone site and our right to work.
Ill be in touch, with options as soon as I can.

I give all of you the option to wait it out. I just need to make you aware so that should anything occur prior to when we expect. I am not to blame if sites disappear. I plan on moving mine early and back them all up. I will backup everyone elses too. But since we have no way of knowing when or why i wanted to inform.
I didn't want to wait till it possibly happened and then have everyone wondering what occurred.
