What Should I Do?
I received a new follower yesterday. We all think that’s great, unless it isn’t of course. The new follower immediately re-blogged my post. That was a post I re-blogged from another site.
I didn’t think that was so bad, but later on in the evening, I put together a couple more articles, and before I could even finish the final edit, they were once again re-blogged, by the same person.
He must have a ” bot ” working for him, because I went to the site when I was notified of a new follow, and there wasn’t much there. I always follow a follower. That’s my way to quietly stalk my visitors, and see what they have, and learn of their interests.
Within 20 minutes of my pressing the follow button on that site, my email box was over loaded with posts from that site. I read many of the titles on the emails, and they all seemed to be re-blogs, from all kinds of sites.
Is this some kind of spamming? I deleted 250 emails, from that site, and my mailbox continues to fill up with post notifications from that site. At the moment I still have about 4 or 5 hundred more to eliminate, and I’m sure it wont stop there.
I don’t want to offend anyone, but now I wonder if I should un-follow. I am mostly afraid that as soon as I post this, it will be snagged, and re-blogged, by the same site. I don’t think the owner of the site reads that many posts, in one sitting.
Am I being an asshole for posting this? Am I right about this? Is this the way to make friends out here? I NEED INPUT!
