I'm not sure if this is really an off-topic issue but I'm a bit concerned about the following issue:

By googling my name I found links related to proz.com, but I also found these sites/blogs http://uplights.ijix.info/, http://ue.uhezi.info/ and http://car-displays.ambonn.org/ that use my name and when I gave it a deeper look also use sentences I used in proz.

Does anyone know what are these sites/blogs about? It's so strange and awckward...

Best,
Ivana

They are probably "splogs" (=spam+blogs), see Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_blog

thanks to Gianfranco for the link Sep 14, 2006

I hadn't seen these explained before but suspected as much.
Further to Ivana's question, I would also point out in general that whatever information you see about yourself online you have probably originally posted somewhere yourself. So in general whenever you provide any info to "the web" it's best to be sure you wouldn't mind this info being made very public. ...but I'm sure these "splogs" are nothing too serious for you to worry about.
Just my two cents.
