It's looking a little tetchy out there. Jeremy Wright publicly culled his blog lists, kicking out the A Listers. Scoble is unplugging from blogging for a week. And after the drumming Technorati took at the Blogher conference for its Top 100 list, Jason Calacanis is offering $10,000 or $50,000 in advertising for someone who comes up with a "better list that is more accurate and includes many more people." (though Jeff Jarvis thinks Calacanis is on the wrong track in requesting just one list..)
And now, Shel Israel is banning anonymous comments and has put together a policy to rein in rude comments.
Hot times indeed. Are all the summers amid blogs like this?
