Interesting post on mashable.com re: splogs ( spam blogs ) and how big a percentage they are of the overall blogosphere. The discussion stems from a speech our Matt Mullenweg recently gave where he mentioned that on WordPress.com we have zapped around 800K splogs so far and as of March 4th, 2008 we are hosting 2,556,082 legit blogs.
I’m playing around with google apps, and one great feature is the ability to import in existing gmail accounts – all email messages and even labels.
One thing I assumed was that no messages from my gmail spam folder would be imported – and that turned out to be true. But after the gmail import I noticed a bunch of message in the new google apps account’s spam folder. On closer inspection they were all legit messages including google alerts sent to my gmail account. A bit convoluted, but if this is still making sense to you, it looks like google apps email hasn’t white-listed google messages.
Odd, no ? See screenshot below showing google alerts for a stock I follow, MVIS:
