Why the 404 Messages on Searches?

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on April 22, 2008


Because the searches on specific topics in my blog became rather obsessive – a certain Dutch Shock Artist, whom I wrote about about a year ago became the main search and visit magnet, not only for regular readers, but for porn-bots, sleaze balls and people obsessed with sex.

Another entry that drew a lot attention was my piece on Men’s Mental Health – no one ever commented, they just wanted to gawk at the crying soldier. So I made those entries private. Same thing with the entries on Hairy women and Miss Pree-Teen Competition – people and bots came to look for sleaze and porn, not to read my blog.

Sorry guys, if you cannot be more responsible and less in the gutter when reading and searching for things, I’ll have to be your mongoose.

Sorry…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on September 15, 2007


I find it interesting that people/bots who chose to spam blogs and websites invariably start their spam posts with “Sorry :-(…”.

The very fact that they post their spam is a negation of the apology they offer.

What possesses someone to think that if they apologize in advance their action is somehow OK?

I have never understood the idea of apologizing prior to committing an offense – it smacks of insincerity if it’s real human, and bad programming if it’s a bot – or perhaps it’s the other way around?

Zionists murdered Chris Benoit

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 23, 2007


This must be the most conspiratory search I have ever seen – someone managed to connect Chris Benoit’s death to Zionists.

[Note to my Anti-Zionist/Anti-Semitic detractors: If you want to find my Blog or the sister Blog run by Ket and me – just bookmark the page – or even better, subscribe to it via Email, then you wont even have to use your keyboard to read it… Or you could just ASK – I am sure a lot of people will help you with a link…your searches are getting rather transparent, you know.]

Who did the search is rather obvious to me. Do I care? No, it’s good entertainment to find those little “litterings” that tell me so much about those people. It’s nice to have an audience, even if it’s booing and whistling and at times throw rotten tomatoes. The echoes of their voices tell me that I am on the right track with where I am going.

Have a happy week!

To Share Or Not To Share – ?

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 8, 2006


A new Political Party has formed and gained a lot of popularity in Sweden – The Pirates’ Party. Why? Because they are for File Sharing on the Internet – not commercial File Sharing, as in “rip-off and sell” but as in “Share what you have” – The Political Establishment woke up yesterday, hicupping and reeling from the impact. In two day the Party went from 1500 members to 6000, and rising. Major member Groups? Those born between 1980 and 1995…and some of their parents – the eternal Generation X.

It’s illegal to File Share in Sweden. It was originally made illegal so the police could do something about the Commercial Rippers/Pirates. It hasn’t even made a dent in their activities – but it has hit a large number of private people, who share files on-line, not for finacial reasons (other than low incomes), but for the sake of sharing with those who have not – a simple measure of Justice.

Have I ever File-Shared? No, I have not – simply because I never managed to figure out how it works….Would I? Yes, if what I wanted was no longer for sale or if what I wanted was not within my range because it’s too expensive.

I don’t race around Town looking for a specific CD or DVD – I already know that it will be too expensive for me. So I don’t get the latest or even the 5 year old CDs or DVDs by artists I like – I don’t get it until it’s either second hand or on sale at less than 50% of the original price.

You see that is primarily why people do it – because what they want is not available for a reasonable price or available at all due to “Out of Print”. File-Sharing between ordinary ‘civilians’ is one thing – the original artist, or the company producing the music or the film or the game doesn’t loose any revenue from people file-sharing, because the people on the receiving end of the sharing wouldn’t go to the shop and buy their product anyway, not because they don’t want it, but because it’s too expensive.

They do loose revenue due to those who rip their product and sell commercial copies… and those – by all means go get them, rip them appart and make them pay – but don’t go after those that in the end don’t make a dent in the artists income.

Shalom!
