Too much time on your hands

Someone out there has too much time on her hands.

A friend visited my blog and wrote to me to let me know it was taken over. As it turns out, it was not taken over but it was "splogged." Someone out there with way too much time on her hands has started a new blog with the "S" omitted from blogspot. The splog site takes you to a very Christian webpage.

The website is called blogPot.com.

I got to thinking, I wonder if some of my blogging-world friends got spogged.

Yup. I only checked a few of my blog friends, but here is the list with the FAKE addresses.

(The content on all the blogs is the same as on the original blogPot.com page.)

http://kitchentablelearners.blogpot.com
http://farmschoolathome.blogpot.com/
http://docssunriserants.blogpot.com/
(notice they didn't use the correct address?)
http://evilmissyrants.blogpot.com/
http://thoseweirdhomeschoolers.blogpot.com/
http://onejellydonutplease.blogpot.com/

Well, splog might not be the correct term, but we've been copied, that's for sure.

Comments, anyone???

I'd like to think that anyone who gets to the "splogged" site (and if you made that up, Frankie, it's perfect) would know pretty darn quickly that s/he was in the wrong, erm, sPOT.

I knew I was famous but WHOA, now I'm really impressed

(I can't log in as my regular ID because I'm now on beta blogger and that's supposed to be an improvement - except now I can only comment on other beta blogs)

Thanks for the heads up.

Ha ha Becky!

Wow, that is just plain creepy.
Ew.
Otherwise, I'm speechless.

I really am wondering what kind of freak would take our secular, even leftist blogs and copy them.

Maybe someone has decided they need to save our souls, and those of all our friends!

Personally, I'm darned proud to be in such excellent company as the others who have been "splogged." Yeah! ;-)

I feel like some kind of famous celebrity now! I'm so honored. I never thought fundies would care enough to try to take over/copy my blog and save my soul.

Now I have to buy a whole new wardrobe, get bodyguards, and an agent. A girl has to move up in the world once she's been noticed dontcha know? ;)

LMFAOOOOOOOOOO Doug Powell can bite my fat white Pagan ass!!

Apparently I'm splogged too. Although I doubt anyone looking for me would fall for that site.

How incredibly silly. I almost feel like sending the guy an email saying, "Sorry, I spell better than that and I'm still not converted" or something.
