GTFO my egl!
Why does this girl keep spam-promoting her blogs on egl?

Earlier today, alittleviolin posted on egl about her "Alice Game." The post has been taken down and I can't find it, but here's a cap of the cached egl page.

This reminded me of the incredibly blatant blog-promotion by taffy_the_ninja here (original post deleted), so I checked out both blogs and found that they have the same owner.

I commented (on her Alice Game post):
1. What does this have to do with Lolita?
2. Aren't you that same annoying girl who spammed about other non-Lolita things to promote her personal blog, aka Chouko on Blogger?
and she replied "well sorry for annoying you then" (cap from my email notification because the post got deleted, either by her or a mod)

And then she messaged me to tell me to stop picking on her and to go away.

Wow, that's really annoying. But honestly, you could have likely been more effective by not being rude. If she does it again, report it to the mods or remind her that egl has a ton of members and can't really afford this kind of irrelevant content.

It's already her second time spamming (people were polite the first time around), and it appears that she created a new LJ username so that this post wouldn't look connected to her first ill-received self-promotion post, which is why I didn't bother being polite - apparently to her, polite = it's totally okay, guys.

Urgh I hate when people do that...I hate fake cuts to people's (off LJ) blogs too...I don't mind when people include a link to their blog at the end of a post (for example if someone posts a tutorial or a review and then includes an un-obtrusive link to their blog at the end of the post), but pointless link spam grinds my gears.

I did wonder if that was her when I saw that post, as I remembered seeing something on taffy_the_ninja's blog about an Alice Game, but I figured I'd check it out later.

Also, I got caps of the taffy_the_ninja spamming:
Cherry Blossom Trees post (with comments)
Cap of her posts to the comm (what I linked to in my comment.
I was toying with the idea of posting about it here, but it didn't seem worth it. If she's trying this again though...
