Imagine our shock to discover that VoIP provider Vonage has turned to comment spamming.

Oh, they will probably deny it, but what else can you call it when their Online Marketing Manager, Costas Kariolis, shows up at an article about Skype on the Internet Patrol, and posts a comment about the Vonage offerings, with an SEO-formatted link back to the Vonage site – and also posts the exact same comment to articles about Skype on other sites?


Shame on you, Vonage – don’t you know that comment spamming is the scourge of the Internet? This alone is enough to ensure that the Internet Patrol will recommend that people not use Vonage – we don’t support spammers.

Here is the comment spam that Costas Kariolis posted today (link disabled, of course) – the original article about Skype to which he posted his comment spam is here.


The introduction of these new call plans from Skype should prove beneficial for the internet telephony / VoIP sector generally. Anything that helps to bring internet telephone calling further into the mainstream is very welcome.

May we mention that there are other options in the market that allow you to make unlimited calls for a flat rate such as Vonage. There are some significant differences between the services that Vonage and Skype provide that should be taken into consideration by anyone looking to make internet calls.

Firstly, call quality is a major advantage of using Vonage, our call quality is comparable with a regular landline service. Secondly, with Skype you have traditionally needed 1) your PC to be switched on to be able to make and receive calls, with Vonage you have never been reliant on your PC being switched on and 2) a headset or USB phone to be able to make internet phone calls, with Vonage you just plug in your existing home phone. Using your existing touch tone phone gives users the freedom to make unlimited calls in the way you want while you walk around your home or office.

It is interesting to note that Mr. Kariolis didn’t single out the Internet Patrol – he posted the exact same comment spam here today as well.

  1. Becareful with Vonage about about the Unlimited world plan it’s nothing but a lies, They just cancell my service yesterday because they were not expecting that i was going to used a lot. They said the I was only allow to use 5000 minutes so because I misused the service they just cancel it. Dont know why they said unlimited when you can only used for only 5000 minutes.
