It's probably not going to work; at least, I don't think it will, nor do a
few others. There's some discussion going here:
It's not really applicable to you fine gentlepersons. Sixapart are
acting to move their software out of the range of spammers, having
tried to be nice and cooperative with certain other parts of the
industry they've basically been responded to thusly: it's not about if
you can outrun a tiger in the jungle, it's about weither you can
outrun your partner.
So, Sixapart will commit PageRank suicide, they've heard all the
arguments about how weblogs clutter up Google anyway so now they'll be
removed. Sixapart are acting to make the average Joe's life easier, in
short they've decided to help their customers run faster than you
(the non-average Joe).
So while you sit discussing the in's and out's of this idea or that
idea, others act, and action is almost always better than inaction.
Sorry if this sounds a bit bitter, it is, and it's not aimed at
OpenGuides specifically, just an attitude I pick up on in lot's of
places. I'll get my coat.
