matt haughey noticed a bogus blogspot site in his spam. when i was on the suicide mission known as (second-generation geocities), it was software pirates that caused us huge problems with their automated signups. i can imagine it’s only worse with the spammers and scam artists these days.

i’m surprised that blogger doesn’t seem to have done much to prevent this. you can see the automated crap via searches at for things like “herbal” and “hilton”.

it would be helpful if services like blogspot published information on sites that are deleted as well as updated, so services like, technorati, feedster,, etc could drop the sites from their databases, too.
