Mark Cuban: Whats a splog ? A splog is any blog whose creator doesnt add any written value.
Randy: I guess most linkblogs also qualify as splogs. I don't think Mark gets it, but it's good to see someone with visibility talking up the issue of blog SPAM.
Mark Cuban: If blogging is supposed to be a personal medium, I dont know why we cant use an email confirmation for blog posts. We do it for comments to keep out comment spam. Why not do it for blog posts?
Randy: Let me get this straight. When I ping IceRocket, I'm gonna get an email with a link that I need to click to validate the ping. At which point, most of us will stop pinging IceRocket. I'm sure Sifry (the competition) likes this idea!
Update: It would seem our friend Mark Cuban, wasn't impressed with this post. IceRocket informed me that I'm no longer welcome to meta-aggregate their feeds, quoting the above as final reason.
