Ah, the smell of fresh bullshit…

August 28, 2005

So I’m minding my own business, not bothering anyone (more than usual, at least), which I receive this e-mail:

When I recovered from laughing (just look at the ‘this-message-will-self-destruct-in-5-minutes’ message at the bottom), I e-mailed Blogger about it. Google is rather slow about support, though, so I haven’t gotten a response from them yet. This afternoon, I replied as follows:

Hi,

I can assure you, I have nothing to do with the blog located at the location you specified. My blog is located at http://psycho-nerd.blogspot.com, and I have no idea why the contents of my blog are partially mirrored at the URL you gave. I suggest you contact Blogger with regard to this matter, as I am not responsible for the webspace in question. You would do well to maintain at least a semblance of politeness in your communications, instead of making obnoxious, superfluous, baseless and fundamentally misdirected threats. Your arrogance is both stupefying and insulting, and I am asking you to cease and desist from contacting me with regard to any matters in which I am not concerned.

Sincerely,

Rishi Maharaj

To which I receive this response:

Under the circumstances, I can assure you were very polite. Initially, I considered contacting the internet watchdogs, but decided to work it out with you first.

*ROFLMAO* is about as much as I can say about that. This Paige character appears to be bother the admin and the tech contact for the domain galaxytalentmanagement.com. I couldn’t help but respond:

I suggest you take a course in etiquette, the principles of DNS, and Internet law. Now you’ve “worked out” that I have nothing to do with the real or supposed infringement of any copyright that you may or may not hold, I would appreciate it if you left me alone.

I haven’t heard anymore from them. Don’t you just love kids that operate websites out of their mothers’ basement?
