Save Jeeves: The Blog
Story Text:

Not sure if it's real or like many of us thought "hey lets kill the butler and then start a buzz viral grass roots campaign to bring him back and generate some free publicity". Either way here's the Save Jeeves Blog

I want to save Jeeves, and I want YOUR help. You can help, by passing this link along to other Jeeves fans, or even non-Jeeves-fans who might find it informative. My hopes would be that the higher-ups in the Ask Jeeves world (and their parent company IAC) -- and perhaps ultimately Barry Diller himself, will come to read this piece, and reconsider their decision.

I think the person running that blog commented on my Jeeves kills the butler post. probably commented on a few other sites as well.

I don't think its from Jeeves officially...can't seem them doing it on a blogspot blog...more likely they would host it at bloglines.

If i was ASK, doing a fake blog, the last place i'd put it would be bloglines...

Even if the blog do come from ASK's men, I can't imagine them admit it..

Got to be viral marketing

Always thought it would go this way.The BBC is now running the "save the butler" story.. Sorry folks, but the butler is going to stay!

No No No Gurtie, they drive little cars around it. It's a rally-ing point.

Personally I think all this publicity would be far more useful if it was directed to finding Jeeves an alternative job. Surely there's plenty of people over at Google in need of a Butler?
