Is Geoff Getting Too Much Attention? June 6, 2009

Posted by Michael in News.
trackback

Starting last night and continuing this morning, Geoff’s article below was the top-ranked post featured on the main page of WordPress.com.  Then, with new links and many hits still coming in, it abruptly disappeared altogether from the Top 100 list.

Inquiries were made by me to WordPress, suggesting censorship.  No reply so far, but Geoff’s post suddenly popped back up in the Top 100. He’s #4 right now.

Hmmmm.

Here’s another funny thing — Geoff got linked by Instapundit this morning (I pimped the post to him yesterday), we got a couple of hundred hits from this mega-site, which would normally take a couple of minutes, and then Instapundit went blank.  This must have happened right after Glenn linked us.  See for yourself.

More hmmmm.  I’m getting paranoid, I guess.

UPDATE: Instapundit is back.

Is Geoff Getting Too Much Attention?

No.

Surely WordPress wouldn’t be a bunch of leftwing Kool-Aid drinkers now, could it?

Naw, Sox, they are based in San Francisco and . . .

Thanks for checking, Michael. If this is true, it’s a bit disappointing that it happened under WordPress.

5. geoff - June 6, 2009

And now we’re #1 at WordPress again.

6. Michael - June 6, 2009

Still waiting for a reply to my message to WordPress support.

Hard to figure how a software glitch could make that happen.

I wouldn’t have minded if they’d rotated it out of the top spot – even I think looking at Lo Pan at that size is a bit much. But knocking it out entirely?

*looks at the bigger pic*

Well, I was totally wrong.

That doesn’t look anything like Chinese food.

The sad thing also is that by the time Instapundit comes up, our link will be way down the list.

Sigh.

10. geoff - June 6, 2009

Huzzah!! Insty is up!!

Geoff, you were robbed. You could’ve beaten Michael’s record by double. At least.

Now, now that’s not important – we’re all part of the IB family. It’s not a competition as long as I’m ahead of Michael.

Geoff deserves more press. Truth is good.

14. geoff - June 6, 2009

And now we’re no longer #1 at WordPress, and we’re not in the Top 100 Posts. Even though a somewhat muted Instalanche has just started.

What is going on?

[I wouldn’t have noticed except that every time I start FireFox, I have to log back into WordPress. That’s turned out to be a blessing, today.]

I’m gonna email those Japanese porn sites and ask what they want next.

Weird…

17. geoff - June 6, 2009

All right, my friends, it’s time for me to pack up and start driving my 1350 miles west. See you tomorrow.

18. BrewFan - June 6, 2009

Drive safely, geoff.

Hi PattyAnn! *waves*

21. Obsessive Fan - June 6, 2009

WE WANT GEOFF! WE WANT GEOFF!!!!!!!!

22. PattyAnn - June 6, 2009

Hi, FFNH!

23. nicedeb - June 6, 2009

time for me to pack up and start driving my 1350 miles west.

Good….that will give him ample time to think of a good chart to put at ND. Hmmmph.

Chaucer has a blog?? All he writes about are old English peoples!
