Of late Ad Aged has been subjected to an onslaught of bot-generated comments proffering everything from Chinese porn to Chinese porn. Lest you think I am censoring negative remarks, I am not. I get so frustrated by the very idea that spammers would find the meager readership of Ad Aged worthy of spamming, that I try to remove these comments right away.
Some of the other comments I get are equally annoying.
They're from "anonymous." And they almost invariably confuse me simply because they seem to so widely miss the mark of what I was writing about.
I'm not really sure what motivates someone to write anonymously.
I don't have a magical taser that can take them down.
And besides, there is no shortage of advertising blogs, so if you don't like mine, don't fucking read it.
Some people, I suppose, just like to nettle me.
I don't mind being nettled and probably deserve it.
Not much to say today.
We've been working all weekend, and today, on six new spots for a new client.
And I'm trying to both listen to Obama's inauguration on the radio and think about Dr. King.
I'll write better later.
If I have the time.
