Should you drop your links to Washington Monthly and Calpundit?
A week ago I posted about Washington Monthly editing comments without noting they were edited.
But, there's a completely selfish reason why every blogger should re-examine their links to both Washington Monthly and Calpundit.com (Kevin Drum of WM's former site): many of those entries are clogged with spammmm. That's OK if you don't mind linking to pages filled with spammmy keywords and links, but as for me I suspect that search engines might put me in the same neighborhood as the comments to be found at calpundit.com/archives/002525.html (Warning: the comments and links there are NSFW, as is this screengrab.)
I'll be replacing my calpundit links with bare text like that above, and if you link to either site I'd suggest reviewing the linked-to page to see whether you're linking to something you probably don't want to.
