Why Do I Come Up With 'Out Of Niche' Posts Once In A While?

Shypy,one of the readers of Blogger Whale is confused about my 'puzzle-post' and i thought it important to address his question publicly.

He asked:

No here what i wonder:

  1. What has this got to do with this blog's niche?
  2. What does the picture suggest?
  3. What does this message suggest?
  4. Why am I wasting my time?
  5. Blog-Author, why are you giving me reasons to unsubscribe?

Glad you cared to ask.But since you seem to be new to BW,you must be really confused about why i come up with a post that may look senseless to my niche.The fact is that the puzzle was a DIGG BAIT like a few other posts i had done before.

In more complex evil kind of blogging [John Chow kind of blogging] this type of posts are quite common and the puzzle was targeted @ Science community @ Digg.Science community is a geek-rich community and the easiest to bait and i had tasted success in the past.And usually most of the subscribers are aware of my bait posts.And usually tag them under 'Out of the box' label you can find more bait posts there.So if you're thinking of subscribing again you can expect these kind of test posts once in a while[not too often,because it takes more effort than writing niche posts]

I hope your 1,4 and 5th questions got an answer.

And for the 2nd and 3rd one.....

You got close it's actually Caeser's square[the method used my Caeser to encrypt sensitive messages].Rearrange the 64 letters into a 8x8 square and read the message column-wise.
