Entrecard Cleaning up Virus-Infested Blogs

Over the past few weeks, Entrecard has been removing a lot of blogs from their network that have been "infested" with viruses and malware-type content. The main types of content blocked through use of their Terms of Service include: pop-up ads, redirections, outdated blogs, and non-English blogs. If you have blogs with any of these, there is a good chance that your site will be reported from another member or from an administrator at Entecard.

These changes are welcome, but it would have been much better if there had been a more sustainable approach taken, in order to avoid the larger problems that occurred as a result of a non-proactive approach.

Have you been able to notice that the network has been cleaned up?
