confounded

October 8th, 2007

I’m really starting to be seriously disturbed by the number of “boycott Beijing” google.cn searches that are leading to this blog. Really. Seriously, such a search is just as non-sensical (to me, at least) as a call to boycott Beijing. Really, people, believe me: Boycotting Beijing would be a stupid, childish and completely counter-productive move. Don’t do it. And if you’re coming here looking for reasons why some idiots are calling for a boycott of the Beijing Olympics, sorry, but you’re in the wrong place. Such people and their inane arguments make no sense, and I have no more insight into the reasons for their blethering inanity than you do.

    About the only thing you can do is stop using the phrase. If you’re going to post about it, use a paraphrase. I’ve found that Google searches will often zero in on the latest blogs to have mentioned a certain subject. I doubt whether it matters which Google it is.

    I only have to note on my blog that I’m getting hits for Siân Lloyd and the number will increase. And the only reason why I even mentioned her in the first place was a post about a tangentally related matter.

    Yes, I know, the more I complain about these google searches, the more I’m going to attract them. It’s just odd that these particular searches lead people here. So far as I can remember, I never discussed the issue until these google searches started showing up. Oh well. Hopefully these searchers will see from this blog that not all laowai are nutjobs frothing at the mouth calling for boycotts left, right and centre.
