Mingle mangle? Or how I became a Dating Agency's plaything

Inadvertently it would appear I am now carrying an advert for a dating site.

How so I hear you ask. Has Johnny sold out? Finally gone over to the dark side of commercialism? Coining it in at last?

Well not really. In common with other outdoor bloggers back in August I'd posted a little bit of light hearted fun entitled "How Addicted to Blogging Are You?"

Earlier I was following up a few thoughts which meant digging back into a couple of my archive entries. Somehow that particular one now carries the legend "Mingle2 - Dating Site" (and no I won't compound the thing by repeating the link here)

I'm pretty certain the link thru for the "Dating Site" wasn't part of the deal at the time, unless my memory is really slipping. If it was, it wouldn't have been used (Well perhaps not without some associated gratuity - no strike that thought - Hee hee)

But as my gran always said "There's no such thing as a free lunch". So if my suspicion is correct I'd be interested if anyone else using this service has been caught with the same post event advertising ploy. I'd hesitate to call it a scam, but the word sneaky must be in there somewhere.

That link was always there on your page - I spotted it as soon as I posted it on mine so I edited it out of the code and the link disappeared - but still leaving the word Mingle2 but as it had no link I didn't care as it was then meaningless.

Ho hum
It's why I never followed the herd on that one.
I suppose I could of done as Alan did, but I'm a lazy so and so at times.
cheers Alan- its just me then
I think Duncan has had the same thing.
thanks got that - so I'm not the only silly a*se
