Initially, I thought only those who opted in to compare their stats are part of the Izearanks and only their blogs URL will be shown.

However, I just realized that whatever blogs I have which have the Socialspark codes are now open for public scrutiny! WTF?!? Thank goodness I have removed my codes for a few weeks already!

What pissed me is the ‘Flag this site for not being a blog’. WTF, sez who? I mean, with an open invitation like that, people are going to abuse it. Knowing how ‘popular’ I am, I bet I will get my blogs flagged real soon. And if someone pissed me off today, what’s there to stop me from hitting them below the belt this way? I am just giving an example, ok?

In my opinion, this IzeaRanks is worse than Google. You know why? If you want to submit a ‘Report paid link’, at least you need a Google webmaster account to do that and you are somehow accountable for your action. For Izea, can we just tick at fancy? Well, I don’t know what will happens when we put a tick for the Flag as ‘Not a blog’ because I wouldn’t want to subject anyone’s blog (not even my greatest enemies lol) to that.

And knowing how uptight some school ma’ms are, they can say if your Ingrish suxs, your blog is not a blog. How are people going to define what constitute a good site a good blog?

Ladies and gentlemen, this is just the beginning…..Remember to read my review on SocialSpark.

What’s your opinion? Do you agree with me? Our blogs now belong to Izea.
