Some sploggers are smart, I guess....
but some are dumb as rocks. 3 new custom comments left here overnight with links to 2 splogs... (no link, nofollow, no juice...) which I have just reported, flagged, tagged, fragged and bagged in about 12 different places. Good luck getting traffic, there!!

Custom comments present a problem, though. Someone somewhere is paying a real person / (more likely several hundred real people) to get around blogger's comment captcha, & all to drive traffic!!

This is getting really silly. How long 'til it isn't worth the effort for us to write any more, & the crapfarm takes over?

I posted something on splogging the other day:

In any medium, Industrial Age marketing always tries to drown out authentic human voices with canned drivel. In the Participation Age, it will fail. I trust that the human yearning to hear real thoughts from real people will make blogspam sink to the bottom of the blogosphere's sea of thought, consumed only by the bottomfeeders who excrete it.

Out of curiosity, what did you do with the comments, besides delete them?
