e Data Pro is Rude and Unprofessional

In the last month, I have noticed an increasing number of comments posted on my blog by someone calling herself Anesha.

Each comment is identical:
Hi Nice Blog.We are specializes in the implementation and management of high-volume, complex projects for data conversion services india. Using XML as a document representation format is of great benefit, and applies across industries.
She--if in fact she exists--is flacking a company in India called
e Data Pro.

Like most bloggers, I get these annoying ads from time to time. I could move to moderating posts to prevent them, but prefer not to do so. Usually I just delete the messages. But e Data Pro is becoming even more aggressive so I am fighting back.

Here’s my message to them:

Hey, Guys. You are obviously trying to get cheap advertising. It is backfiring. Your English is poor, and you are coming off as extremely unprofessional and rude. This morning, I have removed another three posts from you.

I am hoping that this blog post will now surface whenever someone looks you up in Google and have the reverse effect you are hoping for. I do not know about the quality of your service, but your English is atrocious, and your ethics are questionable. I sent a private email to you once asking you to stop. Instead I got even more posts. Therefore, I am going public.

I encourage other bloggers to send them messages as well. Here’s their email address:

P.S. I am quite satisfied with my small world protest. My post is now the second entry on Google--right after e Data Pro's home page.

I really don't want to ruin their business. If they go ninety days without spamming me, I will take my post down.

Update--January 2nd--Okay, I got another comment from e Data Pro this morning. Attached to my blog post for 12/19/05. I am updating this comment in the hopes of moving my post about e Data Pro from second place in Google's searches to first place.

They're spamming other sites and bulletin boards as well. It's great that your article about them comes up close to the top of the results for e-datapro!

Here are some keywords for them: e-datapro datapro prolific spammers spam "incorrect dataentry" scam fraud ripoff rip off unsolicited advertisement
