After much soul searching and internal debate, I’ve decided that I’m done with splogs and feed-driven blogs generating content from my blogs. Aren’t you?
Here is the scenario.
A trackback comes in with the following starting off the “quote”, followed by the start of your blog post content:
- […]admin wrote an interesting post today onHere’s a quick excerpt[…]
- […] Jim Phillips wrote an interesting post today!.Here’s a quick excerpt…
- […] Novak wrote an interesting post today on 100 bloggers worldwide collaborate to benefit charityHere’s a quick […]
Notice the similarity? These all involve the words “wrote an interesting post today” and “here’s a quick excerpt”.
I’m considering adding these two phrases to my banned commenters list, but it’s a difficult decision as many use these words perfectly innocently. I wish there was a way to put them in the filter using all of the words without kicking out the innocent usages.
It’s that, or teach all bloggers to never introduce a blockquote using those phrases.
