Down on the Client

Om Malik:

"I tag my post, Technorati benefits, and despite all that, my tags help spammers who clog my RSS readers gain more readers. Thats absolutely rotten! So essentially the spammers can write a script, generate tags, stay high on the Technorati listings and fool people into visiting their sites. By tagging I am helping this scumbags, the RSS-link blog spammers." -The Dark Side of Technorati Tags

I don't know, I think anonymity is one of the best traits of the Web, although you are never truly anonymous.
