Tagging Technorati

Technorati Tag Overload

In his latest “State of the Blogosphere” report, Technorati founder Dave Sifry finally conceded defeat to spam from BlogSpot and .info domains. His team of developers will be issuing Technorati 3.0 SP1 within a few weeks to address this climate shift.

The impending update will transmogrify Technorati.com from a hub of live Web content into a portal where only the latest spam posts and splogs are indexed and displayed. All junk entries, all the time! It’s a market that’s gone largely underserved until now.

A-List mortgage and erectile dysfunction bloggers were not available for comment.

Akismet Accidents?

I turned on the WordPress Akisment service that everybody’s been raving about. Didn’t think much of it until this morning, when I realized that I had not recieved one single comment for the past couple of days (which is very odd, even with the recent platform transition). I looked at my Akismet settings and it had trapped 21 very legit comments – without notifying me one way or another. Is something wrong here? Isn’t there a setting that’ll have Akismet email me when there’s a comment to moderate? Are you not seeing your comments show up when you know you posted them? I’m going to turn off Akismet until I figure out what’s wrong – because none of the comments it trapped were bad.
