Matt Haughey is a man on a mission-a mission to inspire an international blogspot flagging day to combat spam blogs (splogs). We agree with Blogger Buzz that it’s a cool idea. Flag Day is set for Saturday, September 10th.

After 60% of blogspot blogs were found to be splogs and spoiling the entire Next Blog experience, Google’s “Flag As Objectionable” feature became a fierce weapon of the blogopolitan to get splogs de-listed from the blogosphere. (I think that’s the largest number of made-up words I’ve ever used in a sentence.)

At Haughey’s blog, A Whole Lotta Nothing, he suggests that everyone combine their flagging efforts for one day in an effort of anti-splog solidarity. Blogger Buzz picked up on the concept and endorsed it as a way of “rooting them out and bringing them to a desperate and violent end.”

“I bet a movement of bloggers flagging obvious abuses at blogspot would work just like a clean up your local park’ day might.”

Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? See you Saturday in the blogosphere for some sharp shooting (click).
