'Blogspot spam'

I was going to ask if anyone else had noticed a large number of spam blogs coming from Google's Blogspot, but a quick search gave me one link dating back to 2005 and another stating up to 75% of Blogspot's content was spam...

So I guess the answer is 'yes'

Interesting. So Google gets hurt twice. First, their blog is loaded with tons of junk that is of no use to anyone. Second, their search engine is pointing to lots more junk that is of no use to anyone. I wonder how they are going to fix this.


Books: Java Threads, 3rd Edition, Jini in a Nutshell, and Java Gems (contributor)
