Well, the question was much appreciated. Some people just go ahead and do it
until they get blacklisted and start sobbing. I will never forget that
chiropractor whom I saw opening dozens of blogs on Blogspot, then
ping-spamming just to enhance some stinkin' site of his.

The Net is polluted by some much garbage. The pinging service called
Ping-o-matic was estimated to serve spam blogs 80% of the time. Speaking of
which, did you know that, according to Symantec, 80% of all spam comes from
hijacked Windows workstations? Makes you wonder about how Redmond affects
even those who don't care for them and their software... *sign*... okay, now
I'm just ranting... I'll go get some sleep... 24 hours without sleep....
paper deadline means it'll be the same tomorrow...

Best wishes,
