"Flag This Blog"

Blogger figures out more and more ways to protect its community of bloggers against spam and scary blogs. I have just read on Kaye's Blog about Blogging the fact, that Blogger has since a while a new feature called "Flag This Blog. They write the following:

"the "Flag?" button allows the blogging community to easily note questionable content, which in turn helps us take action when needed. So we're relying on you, the users, to be our eyes on the web, and to let us know of potential issues that are important to you."

I think it's a pretty neat idea! :)

Oh she also links to other sources and examples!

I thought eventually "they" would find a way to report bad blogs, like the way we report spam in email services like yahoo, gmail & hotmail.

neat idea, and about time!

@gigabyte: Well, yes for blogs it's a very good idea, I hope they will check it then and not just block a blog. I mean, you could group up with people to report one single person, who is your enemy!

About email spam reporting, I prefer the way M2 does it! It marks spam emails and it has an included AI that learns from what I mark/unmark as spam and after 6 months and a lot of email, the success rate is up to 99% correct detection! :)
