How can a blog be hated? There are more blogs than you could possibly count in a year so SOMEONE must like them. :)

Well, another question could be:
What are the things that Google is the most curious about?
Hm, hm, it is possible to get quite al lot of 'mountain view' visitors if you happen to put the right words in your post and blog.
However if this kind of attraction happens someone is usually in dankger of ban and loosing all google links as I know personally.

I'm only surprised that "music plays automatically" was only hated by 79%.
