Introducing Ari Siletz hair loss products
by Ari Siletz

Moral of the story first: don't let your private website expire.

If you do, someone in China, Nigeria or Viet Nam may buy the name of the site and sell ad space on it. This is what happend to Ari My expired site is now pushing  hair loss products, acne medicine, jewelry and loan services! Worse yet, it's the first site that comes up on Google under my name. Serves me right perhaps, because I left the web property unattended while living in all these years and some one-man ad company in Zimbabwe or wherever squatted in it. On the other hand, after talking with my old webmaster he said there's nothing I could have done about it anyway. In order not to have your website name squatted on, it used to be you bought, and also, and a couple of others with the youname in different domains. Even if you only used someone could potentially impersonate you with, for example. So you coughed up the extra Dollars just to reserve those extra names. These days though, yourname dot anything is possible and there isn't enough money in the world to reserve all the possible variations on the impersonation game.

The burden therefore is now on the visitor to recognize that he/she is actually on a spam site rather than on the intended website. I did say the moral of the story is not to let your private website expire, but morals is not the real purpose of this blog; it's really about the burden on the visitor that we just talked about. More and more lately when I visit I take on that burden as I double check the URL to make sure I'm not on a spam site.  I'm not talking about the obvious advertisements, I'm talking about how more and more the user contributed content has become no holds barred propaganda and unabashed misrepresentation. 

Am I even on the right website?

جناب ارسطو - ایناها دروغ که هیچ


اگر یکی‌ پدر، مادر، فرزند و جدّ و آبادشون رو هم راست راست سر ببره، ولی‌ چهار تا فحش به اسرائیل بده، قبولش که دارند هیچ، پرستشش هم میکنند.

Some replies

by Ari Siletz on

All-Iranians: Thanks a bunch for the Ernst Stravo comparison!  :)  Though, of course, he is a terrific actor

Esfand: Yes, editorial policy makes all the difference in quality. On the other hand  if the publisher's purpose is to mirror Iranian society, laissez faire is the logical approach.  To me IC has been more a "sometimes fun--sometimes frustrating" experiment than a standard web publication 


Anahid: Something is wrong, but Meybokhor's point about misbehavior being handled spontaneously through natural public disapproval is a good one. Why should a class of adults need a mobser? In the IC experiment we were hoping to find that discipline and law self-organizes. Turns out it doesn't

Bavafa: Glad you enjoyed the blog

Faramarz: Keen customer profiling

COP: We should ask the "fake doctor" to write a review of my acne medicine.On a serious note, defending him or making excuses for his misrepresentation will come at a cost to his friends. Just sayin

Azin: Khoda bad nadeh! What hair loss? I recommend a stress reducing vacation instead of hair loss medicine

Red Wine باز کلام خوش و شوخ شما مارا سر حال آورد.امیدوارم در این سال نو بیشتر نوشته‌های شما را در این دیار ببینیم -

MM: Good idea! Though I have no clue as to why I was picked out and not, say,  Mohammad Reza Lotfi who is not only far better known but also has a lot more hair

Divaneh: Big laugh with your comment! Careful with the "make it smaller lotion!" It keeps working long after you stop using it. I just hope you read the directions before use   






Good marketing ploy Ari

by divaneh on

I am sure this is your own site and this is your marketing ploy to get us there. It worked on me and I bought a bottle of "Make It Smaller" lotion. I will write back to inform other men who are in trouble with their super size if it worked. 


U must have had a lot of traffic on ur site to make it tempting

by MM on

Why don't you get another site going and this time  charge the bastards for advertising on your site!

جنابِ آری خانِ بزرگوار .

اندک مویی از خاندانِ بزرگوارمان به پشتِ لب و به پشتِ سر به مبارکی به ارث برده ایم،(کور شود آنکه نتواند خاندانِ ما را بیند) اگر خواستید (اگر اراده فرمودید) آنرا تقدیمِ حضورتان کنیم.

باشد تا این بزمِ ۱۳۹۱ شمسی‌ همچنان با وجودتان گرم و سبز باقی‌ ماند.

بهارتان خجسته باد.



If people want to ignore him, that's just fine

by MeyBokhor_Manbarbesuzan on

If people want to ignore him, just fine. But it should not become a deviation from subject of a given discussion.

We have got them all here; fakes, fanatics, out-right crazies, homicidals,  suicidals (using up their fake ID's of course), sexists, narcisists, etc.

Classify them and treat them accordingly, but as I said, our behaviour should not become the axis of discussions.

MeyBokhor, fake makes a difference.

by Ari Siletz on

Credibility of the author is critical in persuasive writing. Unless the writer is proving a theorem in geometry--where the argument is self verifying--a history of misrepresentation seriously hurts the cause that the writer is supposedly promoting. A writer can't say "believe me" and at the same time say, "who I am and what I have done is none of your business." The answer to him from the public would be "get lost!"

what do you suggest for my hair loss?! Remember Sareto ba chi mishoori?


Being a fake doctor or not should be none of our business

by MeyBokhor_Manbarbesuzan on

Being a fake doctor or not should be none of our business and has no relevance to discussing matters that are not medically related.

As I said, color of underpants...

Just look at the invasion of islamists (not that you are one....bala nesbat) with the most recent one being the fake doctor.


Am I even on the right website?

by MeyBokhor_Manbarbesuzan on

If you go back and read IC articles from three years ago then you'll notice that what you are reading these days is mostly IC-Lite or IC-Zero.

Start a serious subject here and after the third or forth comment, our democracy loving contributors are discussing the color of one's underpants or want to f--- members of one's family.

I think what has happened to is much less dramatic compared to the rape that has been commited to IC.


Sorry about your loss Ari

by Faramarz on

It is a positive sign that the folks who took over are advertising Acne medicine. That means that they assumed some of your viewers are the younger crowd.

In most cases you get advertising for hair loss products, cheap medicine from Canada including Viagra, fake Rolex from Hong Kong, Russian dates, penile enlargement and loans!

Which means that the average internet surfer is a balding middle-age man, not in good health, not much money and not good in attracting women!


Esfand Jaan: you guess is as good as any....

by Bavafa on


"I wonder which would change first, Islamic Republic or"

But like yourself, I am not holding my breath either.

Enjoyed your blog Ari jan.

'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 


Anahid Hojjati

Thanks Ari for a good blog

by Anahid Hojjati on

It is good to know that others have noticed that something is wrong.

Esfand Aashena

Ari jaan you should've photoshopped your head on the foto!

by Esfand Aashena on

I never registered my name although I was tempted so many times.  I guess reading your story it may have been a good thing to not have done it.  Anyway, hope things work out and don't worry about it.

About well when you have a website who promotes nothing is sacred for an Iranian community whom we know loathe on ridiculing anything and everything, especially since the advent of Islamic Republic and anything "Islamic", AND the editor promises user controlled content but never delivers then you have what we have here!

Some day things may change here but I wouldn't hold my breath.  I wonder which would change first, Islamic Republic or 

Everything is sacred
