This is nothing new. With the rise of blogging, large corporations (and government) have staffers who constantly scan the blogosphere for references to their organization, good or bad. For example, Palousitics has been visited by Wal-Mart, Costco, Starbucks, Wal-Mart Watch, the Washington State Department of Ecology and the Washington State Legislature, among others.

Maybe they'll be nice to you now, Scotty!

I believe a very sincere congrats is due.

Now, if I could get Skagit Valley College to do that on a regular basis... heck, the state legislature IP visits more often!!
