Say it is so! Slashdot is reporting that Google is spearheading an effort to eliminate that dreadfully obnoxious comment spam. MSN and Yahoo! are both on board as well, so now those rat bastard comment spammers aren’t going to get jack for all their efforts. Unfortunately, this method requires two things: (1) bloggers to update their software and (2) spammers to be intelligent. I’m not worried about the former, I’m worried about the latter.
The googleblog has a list of software makers already on board. WordPress is one of them. I might upgrade to 1.5 sooner than I expected.
