New Entrecard Contest to Clean up the Network

A new contest is being held at Entrecard to help clean up the network of spam blogs. You will simply need to become familiar with what is and is not a "spam" blog as defined by the Blog Quality Standards and Terms of Service.

Then, report a blog (or multiple blogs) that have some things wrong with them, which go against the terms, including automatically loading audio, non-English, etc., and report the site for a violation.

Each "warning" counts as one point and every "deletion" counts as two points. The more points you have, the more likely you are to win the contest, which is up to 10,000 Entrecard credits (nearly 25,000 total).

You have exactly one week to enter the contest, it will end on March 19, 2009.

Hopefully a combined effort can help clean up the site of blogs that aren't really blogs and violate common "laws" of building websites.
