Excerpt: After SMX, everyone is scrambling to support Schema.org's embodiment of Microformats. Our customers are asking us to implement it, but I don't think everyone is thinking this through. What do you think? This is what I think— 1. It's Sex for Spammers Take a Mozilla Instance, fire up jQuery, walk the internet as you please, and select the same things over and over again. It changes a whole lot for spammers because you can write exactly one commodity spammers' toolkit to handle exactly 1 Microformat standard (Schema.org) and get reliably clean data. It hurts you.

And then Google won't want to cohabit with you ever again. Well, you're still alive, and you're sick of getting attacked. We are, too. So, at least…

Excerpt: You thought cheap webhosting was a bargain. Maybe … but bad webhosting isn't just a bummer — it can get you delisted, added to badware lists, etc. And it doesn't have to be your fault (directly, anyway).
