Almost famous

Well, I seem to have hit the blogging A-list or Blacklist or some-or-the-other list.

I have, hold your breath, been impersonated.

I didn't know what was the blogosphere protocol for this. Should I get angry or amused? Should I fire off emails to all and sundry administrators ? Should I enable comment moderation? Should I grovel to the other blogger who was getting a bunch of spam-virulent comments in my name?

But then I realized that this impersonator fellow/felli, had supremely developed histronic sensibilities. He was not content impersonating minor fry like self - but also donned KJo's persona. August company indeed.
Do not miss the offended, yet magnanimous comment (written by the fake KJo) is certainly worth its weight in gold.

For further details, see last post comment stream. (The only REAL comment of mine is no.18)

Wonder whether Page 3 will pay me for a low-down on this?

Edited to add: Have had to enable comment moderation now, been getting some vague-ish comments which are avoidable. Apologies to all the regular folks.

Just wondering - Given that the impersonator's profile links back to your Blogger profile, wouldn't this also mean that your gmail password was hacked?

Having said, hilarious comment stream! :D

Messenger from Outerspace said...

We just do the same whenever a post deranges us. Hence we just did the needful, so please don't read too much into it and bother about us. May be since we have been doing this from a decade, we might have developed this so called histrionic sensibilities(anyway i will take it). You are not at all a minor fry. We all respect your blog. Sorry for our behaviour about comments and commenting by misusing ids. We aliens obviously are not as refined as you human beings are, so please forgive us for those rude outlandish comments. We wont disturb your blog again UNTIL any of your post perturb our eyes again(u should understand what goes into making a good movie, so please spare movies in your posts, a HUMBLE REQUEST from all of us...thank you).

traveller: Our SOLE intent is only to maintain equilibrium in this virtual space, so even if we intrude into any id, we WONT change any settings as we have to move on to other spaces too - a mission for which we aliens are brought into this world. So nobody needs to worry on that and the fact that we hadn't changed any one's password till date is a strong testimony to my warrant. Thank you and long live you all human beings, God bless!

Epiphany said...

Two suggestions 1) change your google password 2) put the image verification thingy...

I guess desi pundit has its downside!!

Reluctant Warrior said...

What other options (no mindshare for anything with Bebo in it) do I have to get my account hacked by messenger uncleji?
Kurbaan Sucks!! Does that qualify??

Cyn, This place is a hit!

We just do the same whenever a post deranges us Ha Ha Ha!
You are not at all a minor fry Ha Ha Ha!

Awesome Looneys!!

Nandini Vishwanath said...

Err...I think you are going to have a messenger from Outerspace for every post going forward :D

Check if its your mother or mother in law ok?

Reluctant Warrior said...

Kurbaan Sucks!! Does that qualify??
Not yet my great great grand son. Only if you write down a disparaging review on Kurbaan in your space. Just try it for once to see the TRUE POTENTIAL of we aliens!

Nandini Vishwanath: Not for every post Nandini. Only when the situation DEMANDS. Generally we HATE to get down on a blog space but when we are OBLIGATED to do so, courtesy our mission, we can't help it ^-^.

Epiphany: After seeing your comments, when i asked a messenger to swoop on your place, the feedback i got was that your blog was TOO BORING to land on it. For a change, why don't you write a reprehending review on Kurbaan, so that my messengers can pounce on your sphere and do the "needful".

PS: Generally when we land on a space, we don't/hate to come back but not when someone compels us to do so. Please don't test my patience and make me open my "fourth eye". Thank you all, esp Cynic. Long live all you human beings, God bless!

Messenger from Outerspace said...

Amen!!!

sunshin3girl said...

Woohoo! You have definitely made it to the A-listers. Karan Johar is too small a being, your blog is popular on Mars too. Now, you publish a book.

a traveller said...

@ a traveller: It is a trick.

Starry-eyed nut said...

i am confused, i knw KJO was fake, but culdnt figure where u were copied :(
ok dnt laugh if am sounding like a duh...i have my dumb moments too!

Messenger from Outerspace said...

**so that my messengers can pounce on your sphere and do the "needful" **

If I had any messengers pouncing on my spheres; I'd be busy saving my fourth eye!!

Reluctant Warrior said...

Man! messenger uncleji is wicked!! He wants to open his fourth eye and show his TRUE POTENTIAL

Whatever makes you happy!

Cyn, Catch you on those A-Lister parties. Messenger Uncleji is my ticket to Celebrity OuterSpace!

Messenger from Outerspace said...

We're also confused little crybabies who like movies no one cares about.

Messenger from Outerspace said...

Cynic ji, please forgive me. I have nothing better to do, no friends to speak of so I talk in the plural to account for all the voices in my head.

Anonymous said...

Dear Messger from Outerspace...u are absolutely hilarious...thanks for making 'us' laugh...

Messenger from Outerspace said...

Thankyou Anonymous...Its "our" pleasure!! Thankyou one and all....Long live all you human beings ^-^

@Cynic: If you truly feel i have offended you then i am really reallysorry Cynic. As a messenger my only purpose of visit is to maintain equilibrium, which i hope has been "maintained" with my visit, finally :-)

ZiggyStrauss said...

The account isn't hacked, yo - it is merely imaginative use of the Name/URL method of commenting. Change the password all you want, 'cos I could do much the same thing sans hackage. (in fact, I think I might start)

ZiggyStrauss said...

of course people have already figured this out and I am just a bit late on the scene.

Silverstreak said...

WHAT. WAS. THAT!!???

Cynic in Wonderland said...

don't worry Cynic no one has hacked your account- they are just doing this.using the name/url option

Apologies for testing it out on your comment stream

Australopithecus.

Australopithecus said...

So one of the options you have is to allow only people with google accounts comment on the blog to avoid such situations.

Cynic in Wonderland said...

Dear Messenger from outer space.

Hope your stay on earth, more specifically on my blog has been suitably fruitful and enjoyable. Without meaning to sound particularly rude or inhospitable, might I give a suggestion? I think you and your friends with your vast dramatic talents are completely wasted in a comment stream. why dont you start a blog of your own where you can allow full rein to your views on us poor mortals? I would like to add that I did enjoy your visit here - despite the fact that your comments to some of my readers have been less than polite. ( Something that I do not approve of).

bon voyage.
