A Curious Coincidence
Over the past day or so, I've been getting a lot of hits from Technorati, Google, Yahoo, and other searches for the phrase "Paul Krugman." I've also seen the amount of spam in my inbox (the address is in the upper right-hand corner of this page) increase exponentially.

Is it possible that Krugman—or one of his minions—is Googling himself, found something he didn't like, and sent my name off to spammers?

I'm not making any accusations here, just positing a theory...

(On an unrelated note, the Blogger spellcheck suggests that "Technorati" be replaced by "degenerate." Could this be a sign of institutional rivalry, now that Blogger provides its own method of searching blogs?)

Weird, I got here by googling "tin foil hat" and "black helicopters".
