    A lot of those sites deserve it.

    A lot of them should also get their domains blacklisted by all email spam filters. DIRTY BASTARDS


    Don't feel bad for them

    I suggest everyone add those domains to your spam filters list as well and ifyou have forums add them to your banned words list.

    Not surprizing Revenews was banned as the snobs and suckups to the professional affilate spam operations often block my postings there. I put them on the map in the good old days, when it wasn't an elitist Blog, but an informative forum. I also brought down that forum when it became a smoke screen for the bad actors in this industry. Can ya digg it.

    The original article had a link to this article:
    http://www.wolf-howl.com/grayhat-seo...ger/#more-1061

    A lot of these web 2.0 sites have an achilles heel....they attract spammmers. And later, all the steps they have to take to thwart the spammers can reduce the usefullness of the site.

    Site is back up. Random 24 hr db outage. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'd love if anyone can suggest a shared hosting solution - I'm sick of 1and1...

    Ah-hah! Just as I predicted.

    But if they think that silly little list is going to stop it, they're in for another sad surprise.
    That whole way of doing sites is a sea of spammability.

    I don't know about shared hosts, but there's a huge thread around here somewhere for host recommendations that you ought to be able to find with the forum search (look at the first posts when you find it--the ones that came in before the web hosts found out about the thread). The thread's a bit old, but unless some host's situation changed drastically, it should still give you some ideas.
