Google is warning on comment spamming in their latest post in webmaster blog. It is a must update for the web masters.

http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/11/hard-facts-about-comment-spam.html

What you guys think? Will it be good for the quality of the net? How badly it will effect the web masters?

Will it be the end of the sites like linkvana.com who is charging $147 per month to do the comment spamming? :)

put what into action?

Comment spam exists for years and it still works because bot is not smart enough to tell which link is a spam and which one is not, it can improve but it will never be able to decode spam in perfect way thats why comment spam will always work, in this degree or another.

Besides, its google who decided to turn seo into linkspam fest with their pagerank idea.

Back in 2000's when comment spam was baby i needed 50 links to rank #1 now i need #5000, its still the same

They have been crying about link spam for 10yrs, this changes nothing.
All that happens is the link is devalued after a period of time

Do you really think they are not aware that you can kill other sites with it? Another reason nothing changes...

Don't worry about that. Imagine I hired a 24/7 guy to comment spam other sites with your domain on it and Google ban your site? lol Make nosense!

They could just search for links that have the same text beside them, or search for phrases like "nice post"

Then why are they talking about filing a reconsideration request? It's obvious they will penalize you for having comment spam, and once you remove it (I have no idea how though) you could ask them to take another look at your site.

Edit: Oh, I get it now, it's just scare tactics. Another instance of those google bastards lying to us

In the style of the linked article from the OP:

FACT - All my sites are powered mainly by comment spam and they have suffered no sudden drop.

FACT - Identifying comment spam automatically with bots is computationally intensive. Google can make it about 50% more effective but past this point, we begin to hit what are called NP-hard problems. These are mathematical problems which take an exponentially increasing amount of resources to solve.

FACT - To stamp out comment spam for good using its automated bots, Google will basically have to create true AI. Not gonna happen.

it's an attempt to decrease the amount of spammy comments. Nothing more.

This is great for a few possible scenarios.

I can kill my competitors or my competitors will stop doing comment spam and I can outrank them :)

Or you could get hired to kill your competitors :)

I don't think that they are going to penalize a website for this. Only sensible thing that they can do is to discount these links. This way neither a spammer (we) can help his/her (our) website or hurt others.
