Current Status Updated

It appears spammers have changed their tactics. They seemingly have gone away but they are still there. They're just hidden. They know that people like me are coming after them vigorously. They are now creating splogs that will not show up on blogger directory so clicking on Next Blog button will not show the splogs. Google will still index them thus fulfilling spammer's goal of manipulating Google search result generating revenue. I guess it's time for me to read up on Google API to ferret out these spammers. This may actually be a good thing since I can now use Google to find splogs instead of clicking on Next Blog button. They can run but they can't hide.

Turns out that Blogger removes highly flagged blogs from the "next blog" pool and all other usual links ("newly updated", "of note", etc.). So some suggest making a list too. Feel free to link, with rel="nofollow" in the a tag, to spamblogs from this wiki: FlagDay.
