State of the Quilas, 4-27-2013

I discovered something this week: my geographical readership status is updated not only weekly and monthly, but quarterly as well. Which means Quilas is one quarter of a year old! I might switch to quarterly status updates, going forward. I have to think about it.

Anyway, with no further ado, here is: State of the Quilas!


This week’s International Readership update probably looks similar to that of two weeks ago, but it’s not. Mexico and the United Kingdom were added this past week. Oh yes, and this is a quarterly map!



Now, onto the best of this week’s spam! You will notice that between April 24th and 26, the ability to rate spam messages was removed. I wonder why.

I know what you’re thinking: That’s not spam, it’s fan mail! But no, the site it links to has this in the Bio: “Delicately, softly, catchy moving moving company house removals moving company removal company movers move removal company”.
It’s for a moving company.

So says the I Ching.

Why, thank you! Feel free to comment any time.

Yes. Yes it will.


This comes from a comment I made elsewhere:
Thanks for reading! You misspelled ‘shmnyc’.

That wasn’t me. You misspelled ‘shmnyc’ again.

Here’s another old one I found.
Sorry about the short attention span, Anonymous.

Thus ends another Quilas roundup. Until next time!

      John, Sorry, I’ve been really busy this week. Until recently, I’ve been able to write during down-time at work, but for the past week, I’ve had negative down-time. I can tell you that since I posted “Sharon Zukin on Jane Jacobs”, I’ve had two new followers. Check them out: and . This blog takes on a life of its own!

      I have been putting together ideas for future posts, though. Here are their current working titles: The Kiss of Death; N7E and Stalinism; Corporatocracy; Landlords; Workers Organizing; Nostalgia; Against Localism; The Wrong Black. It’ll take me a while to get to some of these, whereas I’m going to start working on “The Kiss of Death” right now.
