Duncan Riley> I’ll preface this commentary by stating that despite some concerning aspects about how TypeKey will work, and my reluctance to p*ss more people off after last weeks episode, I’m for TypeKey. Why?
I couldn’t care less if SixApart was really an undercover operation of the CIA created to spy on bloggers and Ben Trott was really an international assassin who is using his high amount of international deal signing to knock off anti-US bloggers. I am sick and tired of Blog Spam, and I’d consider selling my soul to not have to spend 30 minutes every evening deleting spam that MTBlackList has failed picking up. I am sick and tired of free loaders trying to boost their Google PageRank by trying to obtain free advertising on this site by flooding this Blog (if they want to advertise they can pay for it). If you’ve not experienced Blog Spam you may not understand, but for the many of you out there reading this article that have, you will understand. Any thing the Trott’s do to stamp Blog Spam out will be beneficial not only to the dedicated bloggers who spend countless hours deleting and trying in vain to protect their beloved sites against Blog Spam, it will benefit the blogosphere as a whole to bring back a time when comments were interesting and not full of advertising.
