Save who from Berlusconi?

Filed in: Spam.

Here's a strange thing - web sites are showing up in google with the query string "Save Us from Berlusconi" appended to the end of their URL, like Witness: Google results. There's even a long thread about it on Google Support. I happened to notice it when a Google Blog search came up with the errant query string added onto the Transformers Wiki and URLs.

I suspect the way that they may be getting in there is by someone adding the URL with query string to Google Reader. Why someone would do this is a question in itself. What are they hoping to achieve? It's clearly a political statement, but delivered in a distinctly odd manner.

Well, perhaps if you saved them from Berlusconi, you wouldn't be having these problems now, would you?

I'm too busy saving people from Kevin Rudd at the moment. They can wait their turn. :)

What everyone seems to forget is that Italians like their leaders to be crooks - and Silvio is simply the most egregious example of the breed. A look back at Twentieth Century Italian politics shows that the government in that country changed more often than you or I change our socks. And what with the Vatican there as well, you can add homophobic misogyny, wilful denial of plain truth, and paedophilia to the mix.
