Miss Snark + Google = Mighty Conspiracy???

Yes, Barbara Bauer of Barbara Bauer Literary Agency is in the news again. If you haven't already seen Miss Snark's post on it, you should. Barbara hosted a podcast with some fellow "experts".

Ms. Bauer apparently doesn't like being on the 20 worst list and is pretty quick to react and react about it. In her podcast they discuss the google conspiracy (didn't know about that did ya?) and they discuss the google bombing of her website (what exactly is a google bomb and where do we get one?). BTW, can someone please tell Barbara how to pronounce Oregon? One of Barbara's visitors came up with a brilliant suggestion... are you ready? Yes, let's have the federal government police the internet and protect commerce, finance, and business!!! Wooo - Won't that solve all our problems?

I'm done laughing now... I'm going to go back to my novel... TTFN!

I remember driving past and seeing... gee there had to be at least 20 signs for "the thing" are they all still there? My brother and I would say, "Dad, can we stop? Mom, make dad stop! Can we stop????" Dad would say, no. Mom would say, "oh honey... the kids love it." Sometimes he'd cave and grumble the entire time and sometimes he'd just drive on by! :)

It's definitely fun being part of a conspiracy, especially when it helps fight against a scammer. You too can be a Google bomber!
