The blogosphere was hit by a blogspot.com splogbomb. Someone did the inevitable and wrote a script that created blog after blog and post after post.
Im not talking 100 blogs with a 100 posts each. Im talking what could easily turn into 10s of THOUSANDS of blogs pinging out millions of posts !
Some Cuban’s suggested fixes are not exactly practical.
Its not an imposition to ask a blog poster to confirm their post with a link inside an email, or a word confirmation.
Oh yes is bloody well is. You want Google to hinder the ability of thousands of regular blogger users? I can see the need to make it hard to set-up these spam blogs, but a challenge/response everytime I want to make a post? What’s the next bright idea, stop email spam by asking us to call in to an automated center to verify each email we want to send?
