It all seems to make very much sense and it's an interesting _opinion_ (or
suspicion rather) to be aware of.

It is not the bots that concern me, but rather the opinion of visitors.
People are being fed the (possibly justifiable) belief that blogs are
uncensored, unauthorised and a bogus source of information. I think the
media as a whole should know it's the best way to prevent losing readership
to blogs.

People often discard information they read on a blog or a forum because of
this impression they were led to have.
