Wired is reporting that Jason Calacanis of WeblogsInc has outed Fark.com as a seller of links for dollars. Calacanis, who is well known in the blogosphere for his blogging for dollars network, takes the moral highground with this quote:
“I was shocked because I had come to trust the brand [fark] and the person behind it,” Calacanis said. “Anything that is an advertisement should be labeled as an advertisement. This is not rocket science.”
He may have a point but an uber-blog the size of Fark would be facing huge hosting bills and as long as the content is keeping with the theme of the site, good on them for making a quid.
