I’ve just put the phone down from a bizarre conversation. Some ranting woman just tore a strip off me for a blog post I wrote in July 2006. It was hard to understand what she was saying because she was in full rant and not really explaining her self too well, but it seems that she takes exception to my negative opinion of her PR agency’s news releases. She demanded I take the post down.
How fascinating! It’s interesting that it took her almost 2.5 years to notice this post! Doesn’t she monitor the Internet as part of her service to clients? Shouldn’t she? It’s interesting how angry she was so long after the fact. Was she angry at the criticism? Was she angry at herself for not noticing the post for such a long, long time. How did it come to her attention after many years? Did her client spot it first? So many questions!
I’ve made the post private for now while I consider her demand to delete it. But frankly, she was so distraught and upset, I’m inclined to take the post down perminently. It’s been so long since I wrote it, I can barely remember drafting the post in the first place. It’s not really that important to me.
But wow, the long tail effect sure is fascinating.
