Who do you trust on the Internet

Fighting automated spam (e-mail, blog comments and even web search) is difficult.

Internet services can use the Wisdom of Crowds to fight spamming.
Google PageRanks, WikiPedia, Amazon reviews, Ebay and Digg all
make collective trust measurable and quantifiable.

These Trust Services can be manipulated. So they are manipulated by spammers.

The conclusion? Trust, but Verify
