In Mourning – co.mments Shutting Down Due To Spammers

commentsBoo.  Hiss.  There is a lot of complaining about spammers, but now they have crossed the line.

Announced on the http://co.mments.com site this week:

co.mments will be shutting down Jan 11, 2009. It’s been a wonderful ride, unfortunately regular upkeep, and our friendly spammers, have turned it into a chore. I need the time and energy to focus on other things, so sadly, I’m going to shutdown the site by the end of this week. Thank you all for your support, Assaf

Cote clued me in to co.mments two years ago.  In my book, this site was the hands-down sleeper hit of the Web 2.0 world.  It provided a personalized and surgical way to slice through web conversations.  My co.mments feed in Bloglines was the first feed I checked – every day, no exceptions.

What a drag – is there anything to replace this?  I will seriously miss this service.  Thanks for the ride, Assaf.

Looking for a Xobni Invite

I’m in the market for a Xobni invite if anyone has one… willing to trade for a ThinkFree Premium or GrandCentral invite! ;-O
