web design and development for people who think the Internet shouldn't suck

Roger Hilsop If the spam is recognizable “from a mile away”, it shouldn’t be too big a lift to sift it out then, right? Or is the real problem here here that link farms bringing in fat stacks of cash through Google AdSense are too profitable for the search engine giant to cull from the herd?

One commentator opined that Google still works, it’s never been perfect, and you can spot the spam links a mile away, so stop whining. True. The problem comes when the whole first, second and third page are spam links.

Hey anthropologists of the internets, come make sense of all these white people complaining about racism!
Malone, what’s up with the lower-case fetishist/academic talking in this article? How many years of schooling would I have to go to legitimately destroy her career? Might be worth it. “White Flight”—yeah, cause I left MySpace due to concerns over the resale value of “http://myspace.com/cosmocatalano” after “http://myspace.com/UAintGonHitIt” and “http://myspace.com/playa4real” became friends of friends of friends of mine. Flight from MySpace is due to lousy design and lousy content. The relative preponderance of honkeys on Facebook is a demographic artifact from that site’s first two years of exclusivity. My guess is that 13 year olds of all races still set up both sites, and by their 14th birthday have given up on Newscorp’s 500 million dollar baby. Within two years, there will be no demographic differences between the two sites—assuming MySpace still exists.
