Spam Pings... Spings?
Micropersuasion reports the hijacking of the ping-o-sphere: "According to a study performed at UMBC eBiquity Research Group at the University of Maryland, nearly three out of every four pings to blog ping servers are from splogs - or what they're calling spings! They also found that more than 50% of claimed blogs pinging are splogs. UMBC is also kindly providing hourly updated blogs vs. splog sping statistics on their Web site."

Check out Steve's original post to follow the links & see the graphics. What's next in the world of claiming and validation to cut down on this phenomenon?

I guess we'll have to phone in the pings, or write a letter and send it via snail mail. That would cut down the spingers.
