Weird Comment

Mr. Samiulhaq, apparently from Saudi Arabia, reached my weblog by searching for samiulhaq. He got to my post on Activist Islam in Pakistan and commented:

send me photo

Now, if only he had looked around on my weblog, he would have found a number of photos of me. But alas, he wasn’t that curious!

I just hope it’s Ms. Samiulhaq (Sorry, Amber dear).

  1. yasmine: Yeah it was funny and an easy target to make fun of.

    Owl: I don’t think his being a Muslim has anything to do with it.

    I’ll only be a celebrity when there are lots of people demanding my photos or autographs and there are fan websites dedicated to me. 😉

  2. I get quite a lot of spam from people with Muslim-sounding names: a lot of the Nigerian scam emails are like that. Occasionally, I get spam from what seem to be real Muslims, which is stupid and annoying.

    But I’m not sure what Owl means?

  3. I was going to say desi infamy, but I realize your admirer was in Saudi. See, desis leave their marks online in the most irritating ways. They’re the ones in the chatrooms “looking for friendship” and dropping the most irritating pick up lines on your blogs and websites, and being general scuzballs. It’s a sad way for the browns to put themselves on the world wide map, but they’re doing a dang good job of it.

    Does this make sense, probably not. We can’t always be logical, some of us. And we’re not always right, hope as much as we may.

  4. Owl: I know what you mean. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, some desi kids thoguht my name was Zakia instead of Zakaria which obviously also changed my sex. So I would receive crazy “private chat” messages from lots of guys. Some wanted “friendship” while others were more direct. A few choice words from my keyboard and they all went away.

  5. Someone left this exact message on three of my posts. The funny thing is that they were all by different people. Maybe great minds think alike….
