Apparently I still have old blogs laying around out there that allow people to spam the comments. Most of the time those spam messages are boring. I get things like “I really like your post. You should check my blog”. But this one, while in the same class, was funny because of a number of things. Before I enumerate them, though, let me paste the comment (links removed to not drive people to and from their site, as I don’t know what it is):
Thai recipes commented on Challenged by real-world ontologies – recipes
One of my apparently never-ending projects that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about lately is how to build a system to …
Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
I have a blog based on the same topics yoou discuss and would love tto have you share some stories/information. I know
my readers would apprecioate yiur work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoott me an e mail.
So, what makes it funny in my opinion:
- Spelling: if you want to try to get somebody to guest author in your blog, or something like that, make sure you are a good writer so that people want to be “seen” with your posts.
- Topic: my blog post is about ontologies about recipes and not recipes themselves. The “person” that commented comes from a blog called “Thai recipes”, which doesn’t seem to be very related.
- Lack of specificity: if you are trying to convince somebody to join you, you should be a little bit more specific what you think can be the help on both directions.
- ebook? I didn’t get the reference to writing one. Why would I be flattered if somebody asks me if I want to create an ebook?
Anyway, I don’t even know my password to access that blog anymore (probably I could recover it if I really wanted to), so I don’t plan on doing anything else about it.
I should get back to thinking about recipe ontologies, thought. It was a great source of entertainment. I just need to first get to having time. Today I did have time, but was spent dealing with my backlog at work from my 3-week paternity leave/vacation.
