What the ...

Anyone know what the story is with this? Yes, it's TVB, but with a different URL: http://www.pkblogs.com/jddblog.

If you go to www.pkblogs.com, it appears as if this is supposedly a way around censorship in some countries ... but a) who would bother censoring this silly little blog that five people read? and b) is it legal to just grab someone's blog and give it a new URL without even asking?

Oh, and this works with all (or most?) Blogspot blogs--try your own (i.e., www.pkblogs.com/thepunkinblog or http://www.pkblogs.com/msyvone).

Odd.

Some bloggers are complaining that the pkblog listing is replacing the original in google searches. And also that pkblog is putting advertising in some blogs.

That's how I found it--someone did a Google search on Rachel Ray and got the PK version of the haiku I wrote. And they went from there to my site at some point, so it showed up in my SiteMeter report.

Creepy indeed.

And yet, despite this second route to my blog, I'm still a relative unknown....
Oh well.

Maybe you're world famous in Pakistan.

How about that. Thanks for posting this. From what I can tell, it looks like a good thing.
