Due to the extreame amount of automatic emails we got through the submit form, I have implemented an open source (captcha) bot test to it. I hope this reduces the spam. I only noticed the spam in my junk mail folder, I have to say that Mail 2.0 (osX) is quite good at spam filtering.
After a long time, I have made another visualization today. Basically it counts the number of links a blog has, to and from other blogs within the mvblogosphere (including the unlisted ones). It then generates a dynamic Link Cloud, using a not so mathematical formula i derived balancing functional aesthetic values.
Also, it is worthy to note that on this day, the most popular (linked to) blog is Choppey’s!
