WordPress Homepage Link Spamming Fiasco

Posted under: at 09:31

Following the recent link spamming done by WordPress homepage, I’m now removing or at least nofollow-ing every link to WordPress homepage until they stop engaging in shady practices. As both an anti spam activist and a regular WordPress tinkerer, I find this behavior unacceptable. I love WordPress, I enjoy using WordPress, I even created four WordPress plugins so far: Browser Detection, PHP Exec, IM Smileys and IP to Country. I find this practice a stab in my back. I recommend fellow WordPress users to remove links to WordPress homepage (or at least nofollowing them) until this matter is resolved.
