NOTE: This is just an opinion of mine. It is in regards to this post here. if you haven’t seen it yet you may want to so that this post makes sense to you.
The basic premise of the technique is to get your MyBlogLog avatar to always show up on a A-list blog for free advertising. You do this by have a auto-refresh plugin for your browser so that your avatar is always on top.
Sounds like a simple process right? Well, not only does MyBlogLog take steps to prevent this from happening, it is just plain evil and wrong. Let me explain.
First, who the hell are you to try and game my site and get yourself listed on it for free? Other people pay good money for a link on a blog, but you want to game the system so you don’t have to? And this is coming from a site on how to make money on-line, yet they are giving this sort of advice?
Lets not forget that if this actually worked, that is one less spot for others avatars to show up, and you are also burning up the owners bacnwidth that they pay for! Thats just fantastic. Not only am I going to get free advertising on your site, I’m going to make you pay for it.
I mean there is evil, then there is just unethical. And trying to justify it in any way by doing it to a blogger you don’t like does not make it any better. Maybe I am just not evil enough for these types of things, but I am trying to learn how to make money, not cheat others out of theirs.
