I realise that links are technically verboten in forums, but in the current environment of confusion and for some Hubbers, distress, after Google's latest 'adjustments', I'm hoping that HP will allow this one.

Wonderful. Just so awesome; another attempt to weed out spam to allot irrelevant content. Why all the changes? Why the constant "up dates"?
You know, I sometimes look back with fondness at the early days of search.

Ahhhhhhh Kind of funny considering this is the sort of thing Bing (Microsoft) was probably wishing for, a major screw up on Google's part.

I have not logged in to this site for ages but see a ton of 'Admin Approved' comments. Is this new? Can I turn it off as it looks like I'm ignoring lots of comments.

Who is Vetting the "Admin Denied" Comments?I just checked my comment filters and I have TONS of comments from readers on various articles asking questions pertaining to the articles, many of which have been admin denied. I understand that many get denied for leaving urls, but a bunch of...
