MMORPG.com blog feature currently in ruin thanks to viral marketers and 'advertisers'.

Something needs to be done, really. MMORPG.com staff need to step up with moderating these 'user blogs'. Most of the entries these days are either copy pastes done by gold farmers with links to their unsafe websites, or posts by paid community representatives advertising their particular game. I don't think this was the intended use of this feature. Oh well, could just be me.

I am not interested in reading about events or features of a bland and uninteresting free-to-play grindfest. If I wanted to play one of your mediocre time sinks, trust me, I would be.

And the gold farmers, oh the gold farmers! Sometimes these morons post three entries in a row, composed of back to back copy pasted articles from the same website. Why are the accounts not banned and the blog entries removed? I am sure MMORPG.com does not want people clicking on links to websites that are not only promoting services that are against the TOS of most games, but are also horrenduous security risks.

When the blogging feature was first introduced we had numerous interesting blogs with either monthly or weekly entries with well written and original content. These days, you can only wish. I can only hope something is done quickly before the blogging community that once existed on this website is completely destroyed.
