A very fast splogger

The first post ever on Strategic Messaging went up at 2:49 am. Within four hours, I had my first splog trackbacks, all from the same site. The strategicmessaging.com domain itself had just repropagated through DNS hours earlier, and had no incoming links other than Whois and the like.

Pretty impressive spamming. Not that it did him any good, of course, except insofar as he was stealing a bit of my content …

    Hello Curt … still trying to figure out why your name is ringing such a bell … good chance I blogged you at http://gnodal.livejournal.com at some point, but that’s not it. HeyHo.

    Just a note about splogs: last data I saw as much as 90% of technorati pings are from them. Kinda sad to see good signal being drowned by such systemic noise.
