Poor show from Google Blogger

tags: , ,

Askimet provides the wendy house with an outstanding blog spam filtering service. Hoorah!

The service is much like an email spam filter, it puts all comments that it considers as spam in a place where I can review and delete them. Most of my blog spam is from people trying to sell loans

Every few months my blog spam folder contained a comment from a Blogger  hosted blog that was more than just Spam. It was promoting racial and gender hatred. I am suprised that since December 2010 the Google service Blogger, has been  prepared to host this blog that:

  • Spam other blogs
  • promotes hatred based on gender stereotyping (e.g. get a more obliging wife from India)
  • promotes hatred based on racial characteristics (e.g. Philipino women are ok)

I’ve twice reported the blog, for abusing the Blogger behavioural code by spamming and hatred, using the Blogger ‘Report Abuse’   facitility. It’s still there.  My opinion of Google continues to dive while they continue to knowingly host a blog that the awesome Askimet recognises as a spam source and normal people recognise as promoting gender based hatred

Poor show Google

    Yes, this spammer went a bit nuts the other day, but Blogger spam did put it in my spam box… Is the blog still up and running? Ridiculous.
    Anyhow, I am also a huge fan of Askimet!! Works brilliantly on my Calligraphy blog; I was having a real headache with spammers, as soon as I plugged it in they were gone.

    I had it a couple of times. Deleted it the first time and reported it as spam the second. Who writes this stuff?

    gosh, I’d assumed the harassment wasn’t too broad until I heard your stories, now I’m even more shocked that Google (blogger) haven’t bothered to remove the blog

    I reported spam from it ages ago. Very surprised to see it is still up and running. Not hears of Askimet before but will look into it now.

    Hi Happyfroggie, Glad you reported it too! Blogger will have its own inbuilt spam filter, you wont need Askimet…
