By now, everybody in the Indian blogosphere is aware of IIPM vs Blogosphere. Rashmi Bansal of JAM carried a fact checking mission on IIPM's tall claims and found it wanting. The issue was linked to by Gaurav Sabnis. After a two month gap IIPM sends a legal notice to JAM and Gaurav Sabnis. The notice may be nominated for the Joke of the year award. From what little legalese I can understand, it looks like IIPM inadvertently wants to sue Google, the owner of blogspot. And suddenly a lot of obviously fake blogs spring up to fight for IIPM. Their comments and words used are such that it will even make drunk Engineering college students blush. Here is a timeline of the entire episode
June 22: Rashmi Bansal mentions in her blog about the lead article in JAM.
August 5: Gaurav Sabnis links to the JAM article and expresses his thoughts on this issue.
September 16: In response to Gaurav's post a purported former employee of IIPM gives his inputs about IIPM.
October 6: Gaurav laughs at the legal notice sent to him by IIPM.
October 7: Rashmi posts a clarification against the vilification campaign of JAM and Gaurav Sabnis by fake blogs. The comments by the fake bloggers are vile and stupid.
Somebody states that the Real Gaurav Sabnis is a alumni of IIPM and the guy posting as Gaurav Sabnis is a fake. How stupid can you be to call a well known blogger posting under his own name, who has posted about his college, city and work place extensively as fake? If you are going to lie, atleast lie consistently. And most of the fake bloggers only have a blog account, no blogs. And in the one post that is posted on the fake blogs, they have fittingly received spam comments.
It is funny beyond words, those who thought that they can outshout the bloggers by fake bloggers must be now running for cover. I can see only one winner in this fight and it is not IIPM.
