Cuil Says it's Not Cool to Comment Spam

Is Cuil, the new search engine that seems to have lost momentum, trying to bring brand awareness back to the forefront by adding spam comments to blogs? That's what I'd say -- after all, they spammed my blog:

Cuil.com Spam Caught via Akismet

And that's also what forum members have caught. A Sphinn submission points to a blog post where it's obvious that I'm not the only one who was a victim of the Cuil spam. Even WebmasterWorld forum members are a bit shocked.

On my flickr screenshot (click the image above for the link), Brad from Cuil writes the following:

Hey Tamar, it actually isn't us (Cuil) posting the spam. We are as against spamming as you. We'll be doing a blog post later today to clear things up.

And just as promised, the Cuil team has written a blog post to publicly inform the community that it's not them either.

Forum discussion continues at WebmasterWorld and Sphinn.
