Blog Spam

From The Net is Dead blogYesterday, I received an e-mail from my mom reminding me to call the National Do Not Call Registry and register my cellphone number. It got me thinking about a discussion we had in class about etiquette when it comes to deleting spam on blogs. It seems as though no one wants spam on their blogs, but no one knows what the right way to handle it. I personally really do not like spam and believe it is appropriate to delete it. No one really enjoys spam, that’s why we have things like the Do Not Call Registry and spam blockers for e-mail accounts. Wouldn’t it be great if in a few years there was a Do Not Post Registry? Imagine, you could register your blog so that if a spammer decided to post something you could take action against them. You could report and add people to the potential spammers list as well. Then maybe we wouldn’t have to worry so much about the proper etiquette when it comes to what to do with spam. Just imagine, a world without spam. And remember to register your cellphone on the Do Not Call Registry
