WordPress Disables Blog Posting on Blogs

I had an interesting situation today come up, where WordPress.com decided to disable posting on my WordPress.com hosted blog because it contained more than 100 outgoing links on a blog post.

Apparently WordPress is now cracking down on blogs that have too many outgoing links on blog posts. I do not know if this is a new feature of theirs, or whether they used this as an excuse to have me remove one of my blog posts. I suspect that due to the content I released on that blog post they had received some correspondence from more than one person regarding it so it needed to be removed. I have no problem with that, and quickly removed the blog post. But, just so you know, I do not recommend posting an article that has more than 100 outgoing links. It certainly is not very good for search engine optimization.
