Is This a Sign that I'm Gaining Audience?
I just received a comment on my article "Always Listen To Your Lioness" (for those who wants to read what's it about, please click on the link). I have to say, that's by far one of the most read articles I've created. When I clicked on it to see what the comment was about, I was hoping that it would be a nice or funny complement about what I wrote. Since I'm always so lucky, I was also half-guessing that it could be my first hate-mail. Instead, it was...
It was this comment that has nothing to do with my article at all...well except it was geared towards guys.
"Wool is the most elegant item in men's clothing business -- flattened by the ready-to-wear clothes as it only deals with paid-for advertising space rather custom made suits than buying a suit. In wool suits will be removed by taking proper care was not up to four years behind bars when he is sentenced on Nov. The solid suit is a suit that was it's biggest drawback. "
It was a purely WTF moment where I ponder if my blog is somehow gaining a little bit of popularity and I'm the last to know, or these people were being cheap and targeting free advertisement. Well if this is what they want, I should grant them that wish.
I went to their website (which goes by "Custom Made Suit New York" if you truly want to know who these people are and stay clear of their nasty behavior) and wrote them a message back:
"Stop spamming on my blog. That's cheap. Either contact me for a proper advertisement spot or try a better approach of asking for free advertisement. Since you're being a bum, I guess I'll show the world how "classy" you are.
These are the moments when I swell with the pride of being a bitch and feel like Russell Crowe yelling "Are You Not Entertained?" in "Gladiator". I really don't mind helping people, but definitely not people without some proper manner. I hope this will sway anyone from spamming on my blog and encourage all bloggers to fight back against nasty spams that pollute the internet world.
