While looking at referrals in Mint or one of the Google or Technorati Alerts I created, I discovered that someone registered Muskblog.com, someone other than me. At first I thought it was just an opportunistic cybersquatter because I couldn’t really see the use of the domain to anyone other than me. I didn’t do anything, but then I mentioned it in passing during a comment and it seems to upset other bloggers more than me.
So I took another look at what was being built at the URL and it is now a WordPress blog about marketing. I’m not sure what “musk” has to do with marketing. If Musk was synonymous with marketing I wouldn’t be unemployed.
I’m not the type with a lawyer on speed dial, if I was I would have called one back in March 2005. I generally don’t go complaining to higher authorities when things aren’t going the way I would like. I try to suck it up and push on. I’ve bitten my tongue so often it is amazing I haven’t swallowed it. Now I have a lot less tolerance for bullshit. I don’t know why people, friends, classmates, anonymous internet users choose to treat me poorly, to take advantage of my good nature, of my kindness…
But they do.
