Link: NO NOFOLLOW
Following Google’s recent rel=”nofollow” development which is being added to blog systems and the like in the effort to combat spam, there’s now a “no nofollow” website. Somewhat
pathetically designed (edit 24th jan: it’s been redesigned) and unfortunately in German (with an English footnote), I don’t think it’s going to achieve anything.
On the same note, I don’t really see how the nofollow attribute is going to combat spam either. Taking advantage of what Katy said: spam bots don’t look to see if you’ve added a certain piece of coding to your links, so they’re going to spam you anyway in the hope that eventually they’ll find an unprotected blog which will give them publicity.
I know I’ve already done this once, and individually for many, but I wanted to re-post a ‘Merry Festive Season’ notice for all. Whatever you celebrate (if you celebrate), have a good one. Remember to have fun, drink responsibly, don’t feed your pets ‘off’ turkey. ;)
Reviewed: Elizabeth Site URL: melancholy-aura.net I am reviewing what I assume is your default skin; “A Special Hiding Place”. Gosh, another site that seems to be aimed at those running high-speed connections. Slowly, I see a delightful photograph appear in front of my eyes. Despite the pointless ‘line’ effect you’ve added to it, it gives… read full entry »
I have noticed while browsing other people’s blogs a general increase in the publication of opinions on various subjects recently. From breastfeeding in avatars, to 13yr olds in love. It’s the Christmas season, where is the love? I’d like to think that some of you remember your youth. Christmas is a time to let the… read full entry »
Reviewed: Li Site URL: thundercake.com I think I might go and make a coffee while I wait for the site to load. My connection has been slow these past few days, so I’m beginning to appreciate the boredom that dial-up users suffer while they wait for larger layouts to load. The 274Kb of top image… read full entry »
Reviewed: Candice Site URL: wastedwords.org Ouch! 205Kbs worth of top image. This is nothing for my funky cable connection, but dial-up users may have an issue with it. It’s already a .gif, which is great – but is there any way you could decrease the area of the image, thus decreasing the file size, without… read full entry »
I was supposed to post this yesterday, and forgot… There’s a new worm floating about that targets iframes, exploiting bugs in MSIE and installing itself automatically. Apparently it only affects Windows 2000 and Windows XP service pack 1, so if you’re running either of these then I suggest you switch to Mozilla if you haven’t… read full entry »
Pinch, punch, first post of the month! I guess I can now officially announce I failed my first NaNoWriMo. In fact, “failed” is an understatement. While most of you participants were busting your guts to get to 50,000 words, I was watching TV and forgetting all about the challenge I’d set myself. I obviously have… read full entry »
Reviewed: Cissi Site URL: arach.net.au/~electrawoman Eek! What have you done to your website? The text was big and chunky and readable. Now it’s small and harder to read. Okay, seriously, your text is still readable, but if you’re aiming for better accessibility like you say, then surely the larger text size which you were using… read full entry »
For all you Mozilla Firefox users on my friends list, you’ll get a mega kick out of this article: nrg.co.il/online/10/ART/825/507.html
Reviewed: Elea Site URL: seeking-solace.org “Aww, just look at those cute little doggies!” As first impressions go, I am impressed. You’ve made me smile, and given me high hopes for your website. I was slightly let down by the fact that you’re using a silver-style layout yet have a lavender/purple background. I don’t quite see… read full entry »
Reviewed: Mysti Site URL: mysti.virtualperfection.net Oh my, 458Kb worth of over-used celebrity top image. Unoriginal and repetitive are my first impressions. Even with the “trendy” brush effects you’ve added, it doesn’t exactly strike me as interesting. Already I wonder if the rest of your site will be this over done. Just a note; I saved… read full entry »
