Steal This Blog
September 12, 2006
So I'm kicking around an entry about a fairly harrowing weekend of...househunting...in the suburbs...where I totally could have been killed...by a lawnmower or something like that...but I think I need another day or so to process that one.
Except...hmm. Hang on. Let me look around for any spare dead horses I could beat for awhile. I think there might be one out back...
Ah yes! MySpace emailed me back! You know in response to perhaps the sixteen dozen complaints of copyright infringement I submitted? Yes.
Below is a pretty comprehensive overview on blogs presented in a FAQ format. It should answer all the questions that you should have about blogs.
Questions about...blogs? The hell?
Q: What is a blog?
Oh helllllll no.
A: A 'blog' is an online journal. 'Blog' is short for Weblog. in recent years, 'blogging' or posting an online journal has become very popular. MySpace has incorporated a feature to allow users to post their thoughts, dreams, random internet findings, or anything their heart desires.
Yeah. It went on like that for quite awhile.
Thanks, MySpace. That was some super helpful keywording you did there.
I got that email on September 10th, three days after Claudia's profile was deleted. Which makes sense, since (sense, since, argh, that chafes mine ears and yet I am entirely too lazy to fix it, just ignore it, and DO NOT PLAGIARIZE THIS SENTENCE, IT DIES HERE) today I checked the email account I use for the Advice Smackdown and found that on September 7th, Claudia emailed me.
(Or at least, someone claiming to be Claudia, who I suppose could easily be as fake as a $250,000 freelancing career, but for the purposes of Restoring My Hope in the Youth of America, let's say she really is Claudia.)
She apologized. Profusely. And admitted that she deleted her own account.
