“you’ve got to admire their hutspa” are two elements that are usually put together, that is, admiration for verve,drive and in many instances, sheer cheek. This is an occasion when the two elements of the adage did not sit together for me. An invitation to join a group here on BlogUK did not engender admiration in me in any shape or form, the purpose of it irritated me.
A bot tag search has, no doubt, brought up the posts I have written about the travails with computing. It is also likely that the same type of search has brought up posts written by friends and others about computing issues. A guy in North London who specialises, according to his profile, in repairs and spares of laptops, has opened up a blog to invite people to his group called ‘laptoprepair’. He has a a similar www. business address. The invitation didn’t even have a personalised touch to it. Unlike some of the other uninspiring invitations I have received, this guy does appear to have written a blog or two, which I freely admit, I did not study.
The style of commercial advertising, as that is what it appears to be, is a bit different from the usual selling posts dumped on BCUK. Some people may be happy to give their all to what appears to be an innocuous pitch, however, as I have not appreciated this hutspa, I have denied/declined the invitation.
