Bloglines Spam

I just received one of those emails from Bloglines that says “User X has recommended the following blogs to you” followed by a list of Chinese spam blogs. I don’t if I’m bugged that I received this email or pleasantly surprised that it has taken this long for me to get my first one of these. One presumes it won’t be the last.

Update: I might be wrong that this is a spam blog. I looked at some of the links, and they actually appear to be written by a human. Hmmm. The email address was entirely numeric so I figured sight unseen that it was spam. It still could be, just more skillful than your average.

  1. I work on Bloglines.

    Thanks for the update. We’re not sending the emails. We’re looking into the situation. It would be great if you could send me a copy of the email so we can investigate.
