Hi Taxi fans,

Sorry for the delay in posting, the lovely folk at Blogger decided that this blog was a 'spamblog' and blocked me from being able to access my own bloomin' blog. However, they had a good look and realised I wasn't trying to sell anything, no mention of Viagra in it (oops, there is now) so they promptly unblocked it again.

Keefie: I only accessed by taximail today and saw your invite to Dubai. Sorry I missed it, when's the next one?

Lucky from Al Ain Times: my anonymity is the only card left in my hand. I love your glorious newspaper but I can't grant an interview, not yet anyway.

Friends in Al Ain who know who I am: You know who you are, girls! (They won't tell anyone coz they're sworn to secrecy and if anyone else does find out then I'll know who told 'em)

This is so weird. Yours is the third blog this has happened to in the last few weeks, and none of them have been remotely spammy. I just cannot imagine what Blogger's algorithms must be - what their watchlist is - to trigger this.

I know, too. But I'm not telling.

Oooh Flic,

Don't tell the Al Ain Times. Neither of us will benefit as they won't pay you anything for the tip off!

Hi, I don't but it doesn't matter.

I use the taxi all the time, so I'l keep looking out for you.

P.S: you are not the one who (two days back while dropping us off on a roundabout and wanting us to exit quickly) bellowed amiably to my 2 kids: "Get out! Get out!" are you?

What a concept to write anonymously. Do you do that because you are...actually afraid for your life?

Not afraid for my life but afraid of being lynched in the HnJ

Dear Al Ain Taxi,

I had expected that that would be your response. Actually, minutes after I send my letter to you through Gmail, I began telling myself how stupid I am. But as a journalist is, I still hoped for your reply and tried to communicate with you through your blog. I believe that the idea is good and would be interesting for our readers simply because you and this blog are No, I'm not saying that to change your mind even though I would be grateful if it would. If you do not like to expose your anonymity, could it be possible that I interview you through e-mail? (Sorry, just can't let go with a no answer :) Please think about it, Al Ain Taxi. Anyway, whatever your answer is, I still thank you and wish you good health. Keep on rockin!

Taxi, I think it's great that you are able to keep your anonymity. I tried to by not telling anyone that I write a blog but I'm sure those that know me and who read blogs, know it's me.

Knowing who the real person is behind the blog takes half the fun out of it.

Who are you, Maryam?
