Recently I watched the movie, "war of the worlds," with Tom Cruise. It's a story about an invasion from outer space upon our planet. Okay movie - exciting and dull at the same time.
Yesterday, this blog experienced an invasion of another kind. Spam. Unwanted advertisements.
I didn't know such a thing could happen.
Everyday of our lives we are bombarded with commercials, billboards and ads in our newspapers. Buy, buy, buy. Obtain, obtain, obtain.
We have become a culture so immersed in self, for so long a time, that we don't even pay attention to the fact anymore that everything in our society is about "me, myself and I."
McDonalds years ago used to advertise it this way. "Have it your way."
It's the "the world owes me," type philosophy.
I looked up the definition of "rude" in the dictionary and it is thus: "discourteous, impolite, lacking refinement; coarse or uncouth."
It's the invasion of the discourteous, the impolite, those lacking refinement, the invasion of the coarse or uncouth.
Whether this kind of blog entry will spur the "spammers" on or will stop them, we will see.
All I am asking is - please don't put advertisements on this blog.
