[Search Terms] Filipino Sex Blog

Posted by Lex Fear on June 9, 2007

This Post Is Rated: F for Fun. How are people googling this website?

Checking my stats this evening, it’s always fun to see what people googled to find AAF.

“immigration laws on how i can deport my wife” helped someone to find their way here. I do hope you can work it out.

“arrested handcuffed or handcuffs or handcuffing or handcuff…”

“dark side xxx” got someone to a Christian blog, which is not quite what I think they were looking for.

“threatening letters” No not coming from here, honest. Unless you’re referring to the ones I sent the bank…

“immigrant you shriek, 12 apostles”

“abandon pigeon in the street”

“fear of people named alex” Gets me number 1.

“filipino sex blog” Actually got me a hit once, I tell no lie.

These are all search terms from various points over the last couple of months, so most have slipped off the first page of rankings by now.

I’ve also noticed a few hits through a proxy search engine AnonyMouse. This allows you to surf the web without disclosing your IP address which is quite useful. Interesting since the hits don’t correlate with any critics so far as I can tell.

[Trollfeed] No Comment

Posted by Lex Fear on June 9, 2007

Well, I guess when you post anything slighty critical of Rachel North, you can expect at some point for a member of the Northsquad to show up. I did always say they were welcome but I’m getting pretty tired of the relentlessness of one Anonymous commenter.

Despite claims, I haven’t seen a large boost in traffic coming from Oxford. Oh well, guess I won’t be picking up one of these anytime soon.

Stats… stats… preeeccciiioouus staaats!

I can’t stand comment moderation, I never thought I would have to use it, but after this comment:

“I can see what you are putting forward and it looks to me like an attack on a blogger to get publicity for your own blog by being ‘controversial and doing a bit of victim-blaming. Perhaps you do not care to talk to readers. Perhaps you do not care about your reputation. R clearly does and fair play to her.”

Anything involving Rachel North seems to get serious pretty quickly, so I’m taking steps to ensure this doesn’t escalate.

I seem to have suffered a bit of a comment explosion, at the moment. I may have taken on too many battles at once. I think this blog needs to cool down a bit so I’m going to be posting light humour for a while before I resume Fallible Design, Housing Market Myths and other subjects.

Regular readers, feel free to dribble away till my stats are near death. Alex Fear needs a rest before once again taking up arms against the Philistine hordes.

Moderation will be removed as soon as stupidity levels are reasonably lower.

[Copywrong] Are You Aiding Criminal Activity?

Posted by Lex Fear on April 8, 2007

Danny O’Brien of the Electronic Frontiers Foundation is giving a lecture “are you a Copyright Criminal”?

Have you ever…
…watched a video clip on YouTube?
…recorded a TV show to watch later?
…viewed Facebook from a school machine?
…written fan fiction?
…forwarded an email without permission?
…posted anonymously on a discussion site?
…downloaded or edited a mash-up?
…transferred a DVD to watch on your iPod?
…made a parody of a corporate logo?

Answer “yes”, and somebody out there already thinks you’re a criminal. And if it’s not already illegal, they’re out to ban it. – Danny O’Brien, Samara Lectures
