Stickam Still Blocked by MySpace

It’s been a few days now and “stickam.com” is still being filtered by MySpace. We have inquired with both companies and have yet to receive any information. Nothing at all from MySpace and Stickam indicates they are working on the issue. From what we can tell, this is definitely an intentional act by MySpace. The question is, was this just a overly aggressive filtering script or a “sinister” act on the part of MySpace, as Pete Cashmore describes it. Only time will tell. Now that Mashable has picked up the news of “MySpace Blocking Stickam”, maybe we’ll get more interest in this and actually get some answers.

There are simple workarounds to this, but ultimately we need to know why MySpace is filtering Stickam. We have tested and verified ways around this. However, the examples were taken down as not to have our own domains filtered. MySpace would probably just adjust their filter to block any solutions that Stickam can come up with if the rationale behind the block it is not addressed.

We’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out.

    any news on this? is stickam working this out with myspace? I just find it funny how stickam has advertisements on myspace, and myspace blocked them.

    Just tested MySpace and they are still filtering “stickam.com”. It’s been pretty quiet for the last few days so who knows what’s going on… Seems like no one is talking about this anymore.
