Perhaps you have read a blog with comments inundated with spam from online casinos. Perhaps a favorite blog has had to shut down, temporarily or permanently, due to thousands of spam comments and referrals. Perhaps you are a blogger wrestling with the problem every day.
I thankfully have had to do very little of that -- as far as I can tell, Typepad has effectively filtered out the spam -- but the problem affects all of us directly or indirectly.
Netaloid has done a masterful job, and a service to us all, researching not just the origin of the online casino spam, but also the tools for us to fight back. If you are a blogger beset by such spam, go sign his online petition. Believe it or not, we in blogtopia have some political leverage over the spammers. Use it!
