Crazy Google Request

Discussion in 'Google' started by deano6410, Dec 9, 2006.

    I received an e-mail yesterday from a guy who wants me to remove my blog from Google because I am ranking higher than him and he thinks it is unfair.:eek:

    This is by far the weirdest e-mail I have ever received.

    I have posted the full discussion here: The full E-mail

    I may just ignore any future e-mails from him, but I am keen to hear what you would do?

    LOL. This is almost sounds like a veiled threat. Just ignore it.

    I would ignore his emails. This is a first...I guess some people are getting desperate as to where they rank with Google. Keep doing what you are doing, but don't reply...he could get unhinged in other ways!

    I haven't even done any link building on the blog, so that gives you an idea of how competitive the phrase is :p

    I think that guy has had it easy for the past few years and is not used to any competition.

    I am not going to do any further replies to his e-mails, but hopefully he will have got the point by now and won't bother hassling me again.

    However, it would be amusing to see what Google say.

    Some people's attitude to the net is just weird -- why can't they just work harder to achieve what they want instead of sending such nonsense emails?

    Thanks for the many replies.

    I was even considering mentioning this on Digg.com, but I feel the best idea would be to just forget about it.

    Hopefully he won't email me anymore.

    Lol, don't you just the audacity of this guy?

    I think you should build some backlinks for the particular keyword just to teach him a lesson.

    LMFAO!!!

    This has got to be one of the funniest if not the funniest and most idiotic email I have ever read. Does this guy really think that he will get somewhere with Google?
