Farewell Geocities

<p>Ten days after my post about <a href="/blog/archives/2009/04/spammers-love-geocities.html">spammers using Geocities[/url] (and other free sites) to host their ads, Yahoo! has announced that Geocities will be closed down. I don't think this has anything to do with my post, and it may not even be directly due to the abuse of the service by spammers. Geocities had simply outlived its own initial success and, with nothing new to offer, was probably just a drain on resources. The spammers, like rats leaving a sinking ship, are already moving on to other hosts, such as LiveJournal.</p>
