If you’ve been blogging for any amount of time then you’ve probably experienced SPAM in your comments from folks trying to raise their Google page rank. It’s something that’s become a big topic of discussion in the blogging community and a variety of methods to fight it have been developed, but few bloggers actually have read anything from the folks who perpetuate this sort of thing on why they do it.
Which is what makes this USENET thread so interesting to read. In it a group of spammers discuss the techniques and the ethics of spamming blogs to increase page rank. If you’ve ever been curious about their side of the story then this will make for fascinating (and often humorous) reading.
