You all can see the effects of "splogging" if you check out the comments on the previous post. According to this /. article, Blogger is the worst offender (most of it happens on blogger pages or comes from blogger users), but Google is taking meausres to stop it. Some of you may have noticed in the top bar on a Blogger page, there's a new button called "Flag". This flag button lets you flag blogs as objectionable. I've now gone to every blogger page linked to in these messages, and flagged all of their pages. I'd really appreciate it if anyone who reads this would follow the links and do the same. This should eventually lead to the page being removed. I will do the same for everyone else, regardless of whether or not they do it for me.

An added benefit of so many spam pages being removed, is that the "Next Blog" button actually takes you to peoples' blogs instead of some ad.
