Google: Kill Blogspot Already!!!

Chris Pirillo: In the past few days, I've been inundated with an enormous amount of subscribed search spam for designated keywords. 99% of the crap coming in is directly from a single domain: blogspot.com.

Randy: Confirmed! I get much of the same. At one point, it looked like Google was shutting down the Blogspot SPAM and even shutting down Adsense on splogs. This seems to have stopped. I don't think Google needs to shutdown Blogspot.com, but surely they need to devise a strategy to stop the splogs.

What I'm suggesting is a captcha mechanism for publishing. That would HAVE to curb the flooding that's happening.
