Free blogs, spam and why wordpress.com is spam free

This article takes a look at it. Many reasons examined, but the best one is follow the money. One thing about WordPress.com is that wordpress and akismet are the primary businesses of the developers, not a side-model “we just bought it to add to our stable of other offerings” –other offerings such as, well, ads for the web. Wordpress.com makes it easy to report spammers, and hard to add ads to a site. Google-owned Blogspot, on the other hand, makes it easy to add ads and hard to report spam.

    God bless Wordpress. I bet they don’t edit the Internet for the Chinese either.
