Since it’s come to my attention that WP.org has been involved in unsavory business projects involving a misuse of pagerank, I’ve removed all links to Wordpress.org from the blogs I manage. I’ve also removed any mention of the Wordpress software, including changing the meta generator tag to:
<meta name=”generator” content=”Elliott Back 1.0″ /></meta>
I encourage all you to the same. Deny wordpress.org your pagerank and help prevent further abuse in the future.
