Philippines: Blogmobbed

Filipino bloggers go after an accused “splogger,” i.e. someone who sets up a network of blogs that contain plagiarized content in order to draw traffic for Adsense dollars. Apparently, one of his tactics was to critique high-traffic bloggers so that supporters and friends would link to his site while defending those bloggers. The victims’ response? Argue back but not link to the splogger. Read Sassy Lawyer, Manuel Viloria or Yuga if you're interested.
