A site that made its name and fortune indexing the blogosphere is now infested with sploggers. Technorati apparently could resist the urge to be a content provider in addition to its aggregation role so they rolled out Twitter like mini-blog functionality for Technorati users under the name Where’s The Fire.
I went to go see “the fire” via the trackback and a found spam blog (splog) link. Hoping that it was an aberration I went to go see the main WTF page. I can tell you that it was no aberration. That place is a sploggy craptacular from top to bottom. Every two-bit link huckster around is pumping that well.
Technorati’s heart can’t really be in this WTF stuff if they would allow it to become such a cesspool, right?
It’s time for Technorati to euthanize WTF.
