Strike Rate

Frustrated your blog aint getting any attention?
Write a random post criticizing a community that is highly popular (famour or infamous).
And voila! You'll have 200 comments with random people taking a dig at it, at each other.
And your hits increases exponentially!!!!

Anyway not exactly in those lines, but I came across a blog post which most of you would have seen earlier.
Lemme give it some more publicity that it already is desperate for : http://helloji.wordpress.com/2008/03/05/iit-insufferable-indian-tribe/
It is basically a criticism of IITs.

So yeah it have some 357 comments or something; about the post, about mudslinging and even debating if the author is an IITian or not.

When I read the post I did not feel it necessary to either complete reading the post or to bother to comment.

 But what really surprised me was :

"this is so familiar :) . there's another "breed" BTW – the IIT-IIM combo! That just rips everything apart."

by a blogger who shares my name.

In fact I had tried contacting her once when I found her blog. And it did not blossom into friendship.
Irony of my BRAND is it?
