I do see improved results in MSN Search lately when it comes to redirects. I agree that people do not praise MSN Search enough for accomplishes they have made. However, I do still see a lot of sub domain sites in the serps (blogspot.com). I am glad that the Strider Search Defender Team is focused on improving these. We could end up with far better results in MSN than we see with Google and Yahoo.
I agree that MSNDude has been very humble and helpful to all of us here in the Webmaster World forums and we are very glad you are here. MSNDude has been here to get feedback like I have never seen before. Maybe this feedback will help MSN become the #1 search engine based on quality.
Yahoo is also having a difficulty with these blogsite -> redirect problems. I guess we could open up a whole new forum just on these splog sites alone.
