    Your posts are interesting but why are the titles so long?

    To Wonder:

    We don’t have a choice. Search engines 101. We need to put the important information and keywords in the title so people can find us when they search for help with a seller of counterfeit (digitally altered) flash devices.

    We are the lighthouse on a dark and stormy sea of fake flash.

    The titles are the beacon.

    The theme we use on WordPress is the strongest and best suited to our needs. It might not be very fancy or pretty – but it is functional with extreme power.

    Just type in a keyword, a sellers name and see what comes up!

    We wish the comments were more searchable, but their are severe limitions when you are on They don’t have a choice – as all blogs are governed in a group. They can’t allow things to break. Sigh.

    It’s the message and the information that counts with this issue Wonder. We have been doing our best to tidy up the categories and the tags. If you are wondering why the tags don’t work very well – it is because we are under sanction. Our message is just too explosive. If you want a nicer presentation please visit the other site:

    You can print and even translate there. We are awaiting for the newer version of the theme at that site. But the developers of the theme have a lot of work to do – the newest version of wordpress is introducing serious changes.

    Remember the developer of themes that we use work for free as do we. We all have day jobs Wonder. This site and all the others are “Community Service” – we help others as we have been victims of fake flash and we KNOW what the consequences are.

    Finally to All, if you want to see the photos of the flash devices and more info on what you can and need to do, don’t forget to click on read more. We only show a small summary – it is in consideration for those who don’t have a lot of bandwidth. We don’t want our starting page to take forever to load! We publish a lot of posts in a month!

    We do our best, Wonder.
