You Linkin' at Me?

Jeff Jarvis thinks AOL blogs will be a good thing. Bill Dennis, however, is worried about trolls:

Once the AOLers learn about blogs, look for comment sections to attract even more trolls than we already have.

Personally, I plan to use IP banning to block all AOL customers. If I lose regulars, fine. That should be another incentive to switch to a real ISP.

I am not saying *all* AOLers are idiots and that they can’t operate nice blogs. I am saying that those who want to, already have the power to do so, through Blogger, and it doesn’t cost them a dime.

But as soon as AOL starts linking to blogs on its own content screens, the troll level in the blogosphere will double or triple. Count on it.

I say: bring’em on.
