Hey Nonfamosi: most of you don't see the comments we're discussing here, because David and I delete dozens a week. It's a pain in the ass. We pay good money to host this site, and invest lots of time in its maintenance. Comment spammers are bottom-feeders, and the blog community is fighting them aggressively to ensure that they don't do to blogs what they have done to email.
Thanks to our high Google pagerank, comment spammers can increase their own PageRank by linking to us. Since this is clearly a valuable service, we've decided to charge for it. (Thanks to PacificViews.org for the text.)Posted by jay at March 19, 2004 10:05 AM | TrackBack
