So I don't pay really close attention to how people arrive here at my blog. Oh sure, I have admitted my addiction to the World Map feature of SiteMeter, but other than that, I rarely go looking in-depth for who, exactly, all my lovely readers are.
But, and you knew there would be a "but" didn't you? Ah readers, you are also so very intelligent as well as lovely.
But on the referral page, there was an entry that caught my eye. It had something like "session login ID/blah blah/jerk company name/blah blah."
What was that?
So I clicked on it, as SiteMeter turns it into a handy link.
I got to a page that said "Session Ended/Login Required" and because I also am so very intelligent, and humble, I managed to find the source of all these shenanigans.
Hello, Unnamed Jerk Company! I would never do you the favor of actually listing your name, because publicity is something I would so never want to give you.
According to the company's website, Unnamed Jerk Company is devoted to being:
a consumer intelligence company that analyzes and distills the opinions and perceptions of the online world – consisting of more than 22 million blogs, message boards, opinion sites and other public forums – into actionable insights about companies, products, people and issues.
Basically, they are in league with advertisers and snoop around the World Wide Web (is it still really supposed to be capitalized anymore?) searching for what us nice, unsuspecting bloggers have to say about products and the like.
Well, let me tell you, Unnamed Jerk Company, I don't know how I got onto your little list, but I want off! In return, I will tell you things about me that you probably wish you had never found out.
