The guestbook on my home page

I was going through the guestbook on my homepage today. Thought will pick up some interesting posts – positive as well as negatives ones (alas! They are invariably anonymous or under disguised names). And one of them, well I still do not know what was the intention of the person who posted it, not have I been able to establish whether it was meant to be a positive or negative comment.

The following two are the negative ones.

average site.
Highly kiddish content and poem.
I like only one line in the whole site
“Putting up my resume is not why I have made this web page. So, I am not putting in anything else here :-)”
But better than the previous one. That was pathetic.
Rest is ok.
Anyways don’t get afraid. There is always a chance for improvement.
And newsgroups par kam posting kara karein.

Okay honest comments here… am sure you must be tired of these utterly pedestrian sychophantic eulogizing shitte… or may be you wallow in their warmth… what the heck… good site over all… writing is at best pedestrian… remember.. blogs need not have a narcissist hue… quotes… gawd what century you living in girl…waste of time…

And see this one – left myself as well as Priya laughing for quite some time. Its a nice joke on the title of my poems, several of them are of the form “main xyz hoon”🙂

Hi Jaya,
Was browsing through Ryze and came across your page and subsequently accessed your home page too.
Must appreciate the work and thoughts that went behind the creation of your web pages. Especially your blog which mentioned about thinking. After a long time came across a page which looks genuine and depicts the personality of the person creating this page. It even triggerd my though process.
Thanks.

Regards,
Deepak.


And man! This is the one I shall never understand – is it a complement or a sarcasm?!
