I have always depended on the linkspam of strangers (23 December 2014)


We link to a variety of sources, some of which are personal blogs.  If you visit other sites linked herein, we ask that you respect the commenting policy and individual culture of those sites.

You can suggest links for future linkspams in comments here, or by using the “geekfeminism” tag on Pinboard, Delicious or Diigo; or the “#geekfeminism” tag on Twitter. Please note that we tend to stick to publishing recent links (from the last month or so).

Note to potential submitters: most of our linkspam submissions come through Pinboard. Pinboard has a new pricing plan from January 1 2015: all new accounts will attract an annual fee rather than a one-off sign-up fee. This doesn’t affect accounts that already exist or which are created during the rest of 2014.

Thanks to everyone who suggested links.

    Maybe I’m misunderstanding here – but what if you want to submit without signing up to Pinboard? Not everyone has the money to drop on random web services, and not everyone has credit cards etc – surely it’d be better to solicit linkspam submissions through something that doesn’t attract a fee.

      We accept submissions from all the listed mechanisms: the three bookmarking sites Pinboard, Delicious and Diigo, the #geekfeminism tag on Twitter, and links left in comments on Linkspam posts. All of them get aggregated into an email sent to the linkspam team and no source of links among the five is privileged in that respect.

      So it’s by no means compulsory and it won’t become compulsory. The note is just a heads-up to people.
