...having seen a fun rumor of a "search engine
world championship" contest...
It wouldn't surprise me a bit if that rumor was true. I have

linkspams per week, but suddenly yesterday and today I've gotten
about a dozen.
I've gone ahead and switched
rel="nofollow" back onto URLs in
en.wikipedia.org's article namespace.
Good. That's clearly the right stance for now, dismaying though
