Online Poker Googlebomb

Slashdot has a story on bloggers fighting back by Googlebombing the online poker Wikipedia article for the phrase "online poker". Its already number three in the rankings.

That's exactly the idea behind chongqing. Except we also make sure visitors to the page know about the spamming for that keyword and who has been doing it.

In the comments a lot of people don't seem to understand the point of this. Some even suggest Google should step in and stop it. Obviously these people are not blog owners. It would be great if Google would stop this, if they were able to they would also be stopping the effectiveness of blog and wiki spam in the process. Just because this Googlebomb isn't likely to stop any spammers it still has meaning. It is getting the message out; a lot of people don't have any clue these spammers are a real problem. I support this Googlebomb.
