The idea that folks think they can blog and nobody is listening is ludicrous. It can cost you your job and cost you your home. And if you have committed a crime, and you admit it on your blog, it can cost you your freedom.
Adrants posted this quicky (see Adrants: Weblogs Are The New Spam) regarding a report by Dave Sifry of Technorati, pointing out blogs as the latest spam culprit. They used the term “horrifically depressing” right at the front of the post, for additional FUD factoring.
Thank goodness Dave responded, to clarify matters.
