I was just looking at some of the keywords, which had found one of my articles.  I came across this gem.

It took the searcher to my 400 pages tips and tricks article, which they must have duly clicked upon, for me to get the registered keyphrase.  Bless their little cotton socks.

I hope they enjoyed the article.  I enjoyed the back-handed compliment.

Not guilty!

I have long since decided that although you and I disagree on some things in life, I enjoy your writing too much to fall out with you.

Wow, reminds me of when I published the shut up, stupid ugly mutt page. Found keywords later: Why don't you shut up, you stupid ugly bitch!

There are some scary people in cyber world, Jo.

You know, thinking about it, it might have been me.  I was on a bit of a downer yesterday.  Mmmm... Oh! I'm innocent too.  I didn't type it into Google! :p

And why do I get the feeling that I've set myself up now?  I'm going to log in tomorrow to find all kinds of abuse in my keyword log.  Mostly from my friends. LOL

No you wont, friends wouldn't do that. One oddball doesn't make a Christmas. Their complete and utter inability to deal with people in a normal and reasonable fashion, is their problem. It's just some jealous nut, and you shouldn't give it any more thought than that.

Oh! Some of my gaming friends would do it for the lulz, now the way is clear. But it would be in good fun.  Not the original. That's a whole different kettle of fish.

And while we're on the subject, what IS a kettle of fish?

I actually have no idea what a kettle of fish is, yet in my neck of the woods that expression is used all the time. This, we must establish!

A kettle of fish can be found at a fish fry.  Especially Southern folks like to catch catfish all day, and then hold a huge fish fry pardee.

A "mess" of fillets is dipped in seasoned flour, then egg wash, then seasoned corn meal, then deep-fried in a huge kettle with hot oil.

Sounds utterly delicious, Chef. And I don't even eat fish!

Sam: <3

Janet:  Life's too short to worry about such things.  If it was someone I knew, then I'd feel more hurt. But it's some random person on the internet who doesn't know me.  That means that they don't hate me, but what I've achieved here at Wizzley.  If it's my success or ubiquity, then the 'hate' should read 'am jealous of'.  They should have our pity.   If it's something else, then they should either tackle me about it, or else be the change which they wish to see in the world.  They patently see me as some kind of threat, which equally means that I'm doing something so well, that it's threatening to someone who can't. Hence me seeing it as a back-handed compliment.

Hollie, Chef and Paula:  Oh no!  Poor fishes!  But thanks for solving the mystery, Chef!

Congrats!  You've arrived as a writer on the Internet. 

 

Seriously, these days if you don't get hate mail/comments for no apparent reason you're doing something wrong.

Actually the 'Kettle' part is a specific open metal pot or pan in which fish were boiled. They can be especially large when required for Halibut. Do not think of the kettle as the implement that we now know for boiling water.

The phrase may relate to the muddled remains left after the fish is removed from the kettle.
