Steve Rubel over at Micro Persuasion notes that a recent study pegged 75% of blog pings as spam. I think the number is more like 99%, but who’s asking me anyway.
Guys like Mark Cuban can lead the charge, but they are not going to solve the spam blog problem alone. It is the responsibility of bloggers (and service provision admins) to take care of their own systems if the community is going to make headway on this issue.
Over here at Spamroll, there is no blog spam, because the system employs a spam filter that the administrator actually knows how to use. Of course, Spamroll doesn’t get much in the way of legitimate comments or trackbacks either, but that is because it just sucks (but who’s asking me anyway).
