    It's funny that you ask if it's legal or not on a BHW. What is legal ? It has it's own meaning to everyone. It depends on the comment and how it relates to the article.

    It's definitely not illegal. Unethical? Eh, depends on who you ask.

    I would argue that I'm VERY passionate about commenting on blogs. In fact I'm so passionate about commenting that I payed for a program to blast out my quality comments across the web.

    You are filling out a form on a website that is provided by the webmaster.

    It would seem strange that something offered by the webmaster to a user would be illegal to interact with.

    There is also an enforcement issue. Just because your site might be the one linked to, how would it be proven that you were the one that made those links?

    The right question when using SB is : is it legal for akismet to ban your website from commenting on ALL wp blogs due to a single blast.

    Anyone can take action against almost anything and find some statute to back it up if they are so inclined. Especially in the United States, the litigation capital of the world.

    The question is, who is going to really come after you for commenting on blogs. It would have to be a well financed blog, and you would have to be a severe pest.

    I would imagine just trying to pierce the anonymity of a proxy would be a very expensive endeavor.

    And if your not using proxies or through a VPS, should you really be using SB?

    Why only these bullshit answers?

    It depends on:

    -which tld you choose
    -where you are living
    -where your hosting is

    The next question is if they can proove that you were the person that spammed.

    If you for example live in germany, have a *.de domain, have a german hosting, pay somebody by bank transfer, give a description in the the bank statement, send him a letter with spam orders, sign the letter, then you definitly can have a problem!

    If you are living in Uganda, with a *.com domain on a hoster in any really fucked up country and you spam personally with proxies before, you definitly can´t get trouble.

    You have to look case to case in any situations between.

    But overall it´s unlikely that you get legal problems.

    Probably not legal as it hampers freedom of speech, earning money and its unknown whether it was the owner or some other person that caused it.

    Nah, it's not the litigation capital because in the USA only wronged parties may sue. Check out the legal circus in countries where anyone can sue anyone else just by witnessing the wrongdoing. You can literally sue a guy blocking a driveway which is not even yours.
