SPLOGS! (a blogging on blogging post)

I love science and technology.
I'm facinated by all things new and cool.
I am easily distracted by shiny objects.
I subscribe to Wired Magazine and read it cover to cover.

This month's issue had a extensive story on blogs which are really just spam in disguise.
These "splogs" account for more than 50% of known blogs which often started out as legitmate blogs that were abandoned by their owners (snif!) and hijacked by these sploggers.

All those spammy ads we get as comments help to create yet another "link" in the twisted chain of fake blogs designed to sell a product or simply deceive google ads out of a few bucks.

While the article from this issue of Wired is not yet available online, here is one with some useful tips to help you to avoid being splogged.

Wow Shifra... You get Wired too???!!! You're my kinda gal... Maybe you have a sister/cousin/friend that's available?

I was going to say what Steg said. Poor Mirty.

Like Mirty... :(

Darn. Everyone else already said that, I just realized. Where are you Mirty!?

Ok, let me third that about Mirty.

Mirty is on a quest to take down the foul splogger. We should help her with this.

Yawp!!!!!!!

Ooh, that happened to a friend of mine! She took down her blog and then a day later someone else had that blog address and it was all ads and garbage and stuff. :(
