This answer from another thread seemed very appropriate here...

Whatever it is you're thinking of doing is doomed.  Find another way around.

What I want to know is why this topic isn't bold?

Well this is certainly a coincidence, as you're referring to my wife's weblog (which I made for her).

And you're correct in your experiencing trouble connecting to her site, since the (sometimes shitty) host, Ready Hosting, seems to be blocking most of Brazil from accessing their servers. I even posted something about this topic here:

I noticed that you misspelled the URL of her site. It's actually:

http://ingrid.poochkiss.com/

Presumably because Ingrid Pochkiss isn't bold either since she doesn't have a web site to her name, neither under .com, nor .org, nor .net nor even .edu even though I am sure she could teach me things. She is so much a blushing violet that she can't even be googled out of her anonymity.

Alas, it seems that I must remain forever single!

If you want me to pass on a message to Ingrid click the name below.

Google asked me if I was really looking for Poochkiss, and I gave up at the first attempt. Unlike Chi Lambda I do not have the steadfastness to deserve  the ineffable Ingrid.

Perhaps I should put an ad on the internet; "poor pooch looking to be kissed"

I'm tempted to put up a site 'Searching for Poochkiss'

Is this thread a sort of private joke ?
Or did the poster heard about Ingrid on JOS...

Pakter: This is simply a coincidence. No joke.

There's no way this could be a coincidence!  There are, what, a billion people on the Internet?  And he just happened to post the message to a forum that you read too?  Unbelievable.

Are you sure that he didn't have some reason to believe he'd find you on JOS?

"Are you sure that he didn't have some reason to believe he'd find you on JOS? "

uh, he probably saw chi lambda's original post about the website (referenced above)
