i have a small blog. you might say that it is even obscure. and, i am most certainly not being read by any sort of huge audience.
yet, i get these goofy damned comments from people who are ostensibly, ... , apparently, ... , for all appearances, ... , advertising. advertising?
it makes no sense to me.
usually, they have a little blurb about what a great blog it is, usually in a sort of beginners version of english, and some little comment that has nothing to do with the post. sometimes they will lift a little section of the post and "quote" it without attribution, to see if i remember what i remote, or to try to make it appear as though they agree? and, some of recent vintage just seem to use the whole thing to communicate with each other. the giveaway, if there is such a thing, is in the email address, which usually refers to a business enterprise of some sort or another. sports shoes seem to be big.
what is going on here?
am i being used as though i were a mail drop, for clandestine communications?
anybody else have any ideas.
i mean, the whole thing is really bizarre. and, sometimes, most of the time, actually, the posts are really old that they "comment" on, and nobody in a million years is going to read the post, and see the "adverts." it is just odd.
