#1) That graphic makes me want Dunkin Donuts. #2) That exchange _is_ a classic. Love the Eck. #3) The Eck will always be an A. :)
That's due to Twitter not growing actual users, but instead, spammers. As more people follow more accounts, clearly they don't have enough time to click through the % of URLs they might once have.

As far as blog spam goes, Warcraft gold is the #1 topic, by far. It's easy enough for me to delete comment spam when it comes through Disqus, but when they end up on my old Blogger comment-enabled posts, it's painful to go one by one, so a lot of them have unfortunately made it through. In December I jokingly said to Twitter that I was giving up: http://twitter.com/louisgray/statuses/1064213938 "More than half of the English language blog comment spam I get is for World of Warcraft and where to buy gold. Maybe I should sign up." So no... you're not alone.

The storage community is quite small. I've been lucky enough to be at the same storage company (BlueArc) since 2001, but even during the last eight years I've seen companies rise and fall, competitors come and go, and people with them. At times, SNW seems like a massive reunion, not just for me, but for colleagues, partners and others. Often, I can watch folks I know simply move from booth to booth between years! That also is partly why I think it makes sense to be more about promoting the users and being transparent, rather than distrustful of competition in what at times has been a quite combative industry. I'm glad sites like yours exist and that we have forums to engage. Maybe we'll bump into each other at some upcoming event, but may we both keep our respective logos! :-)
