Evony, a browser-based MMO which debuted recently, has angered some bloggers by using a comment spam campaign.
Online pharmacies and questionable purveyors of herbal remedies advertise by comment spam… Porn sites advertise by comment spam… Fraudulent financial services advertise by comment spam…
Legitimate business, and legitimate sites, do not advertise by comment spam. I associate comment spam with the underbelly of the web, with fraud and crime and child porn… Maybe Evony’s site won’t inflict malware on my computer. But I won’t take that chance. Given the company Evony has chosen to keep, you shouldn’t either.
Bruce on Games expresses similar concerns in a post titled simply, "Don’t Play Evony."
