Spam everywhere: now in FourSquare tips

Spam in your email, spam in your Twitter stream, spam in your Facebook friend requests … spam everywhere.

I guess it’s only a matter of time until we have spam in our bathroom reading material. Oh wait, that’s been done too.

As I checked in to YVR airport in Vancouver this morning, this tip came up:

Hmmm …. it’s 4:45 AM on a Wednesday morning, and I’m flying out of Vancouver, heading to Toronto. How likely is it that I’m interested in a Monday night meeting that sounds kind of get-rich-quickish?

You got it – not very.

Which means that this is spam to me. And very likely has been added by someone just to ensure that thousands of people who pass through YVR get spammed with their message.

More than slightly uncool …
