20 Jan PageRank Update January 2011…Big Deal

While the forums, twitter and blogs are a flutter with a PageRank update, I'm still surprised anyone cares anymore. The craze over the little green bar still makes some people feel all warm and tingly inside, but really, are you seeing any more traffic or ranking increases? Chances are they are not.

15 Nov Kudos To StopForumSpam.com

As a forum owner and friend of forum owners I know how bloody hard it is to keep tabs on user creation, even with all the technology we have.
