फूल खिले थे गुलशन गुलशन

Why do florists love this blog? I ask this question each time I get comments from some of my most loyal readers. These are people like "Rony M", "Raya Manna", "Tanmoy Sarkar", "Soni', and "Poulami". Sometimes, like 'expressflowersmumbai', they are just too shy to reveal their real name.

They usually tell me that they liked reading the content of this website, that it was very informative, and now would I like to show my kindness and appreciation for my special ones in places ranging from Antananarivo to Znamensky by sending them stuff? The interesting thing is that they are usually florists. They also have cakes and other gifts, but they always begin with flowers.

I am not really in a position to really take advantage of their services, which makes me feel bad. So I have tried telling Google & Blogger several times not to let them waste their time telling me how much they love my blog. But Google doesn't seem to be sympathetic to their plight. Therefore, I'm writing to "Rony M", "Raya Manna", "Tanmoy Sarkar", "Soni', and "Poulami" via this blog (which they so obviously relish and hopefully will read) to visit other meadows where other drones may be more sympathetic, unlike me.

Also that, in an attempt to (for want of a better term) 'de-flower' my blog, I've enabled comment moderation. So from now on, your paeans to me will remain strictly private. Wink, wink.

Hehe! Nice way of expressing this sentiment that a lot of bloggers face actually. Spam is one thing and anonymous comments are another which trouble me in particular.. There are so many faceless/nameless readers.. don't understand why they reveal themselves and say, "Hi. No offenses meant. But the puke that you spew as writing sucks bigtime."

I am OK with a comment like that if they tell me who they really are, you know.

Thanks! was quite miffed with Blogger not seeming to do anything happening to these obvious spammers despite reporting them several times. But now just shrugging shoulders.

Time to try some other comment system like disqus

Maybe a coincidence. But all of them seem to be "Bong" names :)

Ramanand said...

I guess so - will have a look.

Upasna said...

heheh...I still can't see how your blog was flowery! :))

Ramanand said...

Samrat: oh yes :-) may be you could do something? Or is this how the naxals finance their ops?

Upasna: the blog must be emitting some subtle scent, who knows.
