Splog? What’s That?


Buzzword of the Day

splog: A fake blog created by spammers as a home for their ads and scams. Of the 7,000 new blogs started each day, nearly 10% are now splogs. (Sorry, there’s nothing humorous about this one.)


It’s short for “spam blog”. Until I got this email, I did not know such a thing existed. But hey! There are even sites set up to report them, like Fight Splog! and SplogSpot. It’s sad but true: We really are drowning in spam, just like the Monty Python sketch that originate the term – pretty soon the Internet will have to call it quits, and the credits will roll.
