All entries but one on the site you talk about show links that you appear to have shared from a site to FaceBook. Maybe that is why you are showing up there so many times. Do the people you have looked up share links in this manner also?

Devorah Zealot Soodak

Jane,

Thanks for writing. I appreciate your taking the time to think about this and trying to help me come up with a solution to this little mystery. I am afraid I will have to stay mystified for a bit longer.

I have no apps enabled on facebook and all of the entries on that site are from facebook, nowhere else. They seem to be grabbing my wall posts from facebook using one of the APIs provided by facebook.

It isn't just links they are grabbing. They are also grabbing my status posts. I use the bookmark on my browser or the share option in facebook to share links. I do not use buttons or any other utility.

I don't know why they have me and not other people. I have my account security and privacy more stringently set than most people. It is very strange.

i guess I did not write things properly. I meant if you click a FaceBook button on a site, for example Yahoo, to share a link it can be gotten by other sites without having to look at your FaceBook page. I do not know how you are sharing the links so I do not know if this is the answer but I wanted to help. When I looked at the site I saw one status message and all the rest were shared links which is why I thought this might be the answer.

Devorah Zealot Soodak

Jane,

You are right about those facebook buttons on web sites. They do grab your stuff. That's why I don't use them. The fact that I don't use those buttons is part of why I'm so puzzled that this guy has grabbed me.

I'm really happy that you've gone to so much trouble. Your instincts are good and that is definitely the first thing to look at. I also tried to figure out what I'm doing differently from other people.

I've disabled all apps and the guy's still getting my new stuff. For all I know he found me by accident and has a few hardcoded links to people that he keeps up to date. Facebook is extremely insecure so I don't put anything up there that I don't want making the rounds.

If you have any other ideas, I'd be interested in hearing them. Thanks again for your help.

Baruch Hashem. Hoshia na.

I cannot think of anything else but if i do I will let you know.

i found a link to this post by accident, which is why i read it. I am sorry that I have not commented on any of your other posts. I apologize for saying this but I find it all confusing so I have not been able to read much of it. I found it very hard to find how to reply to your very interesting post but I wanted to give you my ideas so I looked very hard. Please except my sincere apologies for saying this and I would not have done it except that I would like to read more of what you say.

Jane

Devorah Zealot Soodak

Jane,

You have nothing to apologize for. I thank you for taking the time to read the blog and the trouble to research and respond. I'm thrilled that you found me.

The blog is kind of all over the place. I suppose it would make more sense if you had followed it from the beginning because some of what I write presupposes knowledge of what has come before.

Some of it is about me, some of it is about the internet, some of it is about life in general, and I try to tie them all together. I kind of collect things and put them in the blog and try to tell my story.

I'm sorry you find it confusing. I wish you could explain what you find confusing. Maybe it's something I could change. I'd like the blog to be accessible to people while still being true to myself.

Thanks for your comments. I hope you come back and read more.

Baruch Hashem. Hoshia na.

I am sorry to be so not clear. It is hard for me to find what is to read and not to read. I see the same picture many times, things that I think must be from wikepedia, and many other things that hurt my eyes. I am not searching but i see many things from google as well. I think also I have trouble reading on a black background. Maybe it is because I have neurological problems but I find it most hard to find what your are writing and what is everything else. Please do not let what I am saying upset you. I am sure that many others find it much easier and it is only my difficulties that make it so hard.

Jane,

Now I understand the source of your confusion. What is the blog and what isn't. What's to read and what's just there. Some of that is deliberate on my part because the blog is as much about the internet as it is about me.

The links that I put in myself all have titles that you will see if you hover the mouse over them. Same for the pictures. If I have linked them to something, it will tell you so. Those links always open in new windows so you just need to close the window to get back to the blog. The links that are part of the "screen scrapes" are as they were in the originals.

I show the Google searches several ways. I show screen prints (pictures linked to the searches) and sceen scrapes which are the actual search results embedded in the blog. These are snapshots of how the internet appeared to me at that moment, a little freeze frame if you will.

You can just read the stuff that I write if the other stuff confuses you. I think the stuff that I link to with the pictures is interesting and those links create a parallel thread to the blog. I always try to relate them back somehow; sometimes I am more successful than others.

The stuff after my signature is purely optional. Feel free to skip over that. I put in the stuff from Wiki there because it has all of the copyright information. I also think it's kind of cool. I always look at the picture pages even when I'm just looking stuff up on Wikipedia for reference.

I also have neurological problems and that probably shows up as my scattershot approach. I haven't been feeling well and that makes it really hard for me to tie up the loose ends. I understand your struggle. It isn't a lot of fun.

I hope that you like the blog and get used to it. It's really nice when people take an interest in it and make the effort to read it. It's even nicer when they take the trouble to comment. I'm really happy that you wrote.

Feel free to ask me questions. I'll answer them the best way I can. I look forward to hearing from you soon, on this post or another.

Be well.

Baruch Hashem. Hoshia na.

I would like to read other pieces that you have written but I am finding it very hard to find them. Is it possible to make what you have written look different than everything else so that I do not get confused? I maybe am the only person having this problem and that you like it this way, so I apologize for asking. I do not want you to think that I am not interested or I would not ask at all.

Jane

Devorah Zealot Soodak

Jane,

You aren't the only one who has found the blog confusing. I really am not quite sure what to do about it. I've been trying various things, I'm guessing without too much success.

Here is a blog post that I think will be a little less confusing: Carpe Diem:Epilepsy Carpe Diem: The Jewish Zealot Lunatic Epileptic Leper Says: Hello from the Gross Out Hotel!. I wrote it earlier this year.

This one is almost only stuff that I wrote. The stuff that I didn't is after the signature. You can see in this post that what I write is in short paragraphs with pictures on alternating sides. Please let me know how you find this one. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Baruch Hashem. Hoshia na.

After thinking about this much, I know now how they are getting your posts and other peoples of course. They are not getting it from your page. They are getting it from your friends pages. Only if every one of your friends has very tight security will your posts not show.

I hope this is helpful to you as it has been a puzzlement to me.

Jane Brown

I do not see this idol bin when I click the search you provides up there. I want you to know this.

Devorah Zealot Soodak

Jane,

Thanks for writing. Thanks for letting me know what you see on the search. Mr. Idol Bin has fallen to page three of that search when I run it now. Things change. I was really not too happy to see him above me in the rankings. This is more like it.

He says he's experimenting with some facebook graphical API to grab the data. I do not allow friends' apps to access any of my data so I don't think I'm vulnerable to their security settings anymore. That is a huge vulnerability that you correctly point out. That's why I plugged that hole.

I really don't care so much if he keeps dumping my feed as long as he keeps falling in the search rankings. If I start seeing him crowd me out of the search rankings again, I'll figure out what to do then. For now, I'll just let sleeping dogs lie.

Have you read any of my other posts? I'd be interested to know what you think. Thanks for your interest.

Baruch Hashem. Hoshia na.

Devorah Zealot Soodak

funny,

Thanks for writing. I don't see it anymore either. The man who created the site must read my blog. He has removed me without my having asked.

I also figured out why he got my posts and not those of my friends. I have the visibility of my posts set to public because I harbor no illusions of anything I put on Facebook being private. That makes them accessible.

That's two mysteries solved.
