Since the splog detection is far from reliable in the current state of the art, the price to pay is likely to be a very high number of "false positives". I suspect that many legitimate blogs have also disappeared.

Also, Blogger just added the capability to moderate comments. So now you can have word verification, comment moderation, or both to prevent comment spam (which is, of course, very frequent on Blogspot blogs without any protection).

I assume the splog removal was part of the upgrade that included comment moderation.

Well, I really hope that it works 'cause it's extremely annoying to keep wading through so much spam blogs that sometimes seem legitimate but they're just copying news articles from CNET or wherever and wasting my time.

Didn't the spammers find some way to avoid showing up in the random blog thingy? Or did they find a way to disable the flagging of their sites? I can't really remember...

As long as registration is open there shall be more splog. They need an invite/SMS system like Gmail.

Two splogs in my first five clicks through the randomizer. It's not over yet.
