A Bit of Credit

It’s time to give a bit of credit where it’s due. My original blog post about Google and StopBadware.org generated some attention, and two people from those organizations responded with a helpful attitude. Matt Cutts from Google posted a comment pointing out a Mister Poll user who was trying to exploit our system. Earlier this evening, John Palfrey from StopBadware.org emailed me with news that his group is currently working with its partners to send me specific information about what triggered the badware advisory in the first place. I don’t think it’s officially either of these gentlemen’s jobs to handle communication of this nature, but I certainly appreciate them stepping in and lending a hand where others fell down. Thanks. I’m hopeful that this situation will be resolved on a positive note and that a more inclusive official process will result.

    good news about your fight against exploiters….it’s so frustrating to create a poll and some idiot votes over 1000 times in one ot two hours…keep the fight up…

    maybe one should login to vote…

    Thanks, vulcannightbird. Actually, requiring a login to vote will be an option in our new system. You will be able to choose to keep it wide open or require login.
