Stumbleupon Bans Entrecard

I was trying to Stumble this nice article posted on the Entrecard blog titled Blogger Designer’s Toolbox, which lists some useful Resources for Customizing Blogger Templates, but was surprised to see that Stumbleupon had banned the site.

The stumbleupon url redirects to http://www.stumbleupon.com/error.php?error=BANNED_SITE and here is the message you get

I checked the Entrecard main site and several other urls, and it seems the entire domain has been blocked. I really don’t know why and when they banned the site. But the Entrecard blog provides some great articles and I would really like to see the Entrecard blog unbanned so users can Stumble some great content out there.

Entrecard had lately changed the Pricing Algorithm to stop the card dropping game and recently also updated the quality standards to give a better user experience to Entrecard users.

Yes.

This is the Business secret. We must understand these type of activity from competitors. Because they are trying to avoid competitors from web 2.0 world.

Right now Entrecard have good Rules to avoid spam. I thank Graham Langdon for his Free Service in Entrecard.com.

Thanks

It is a sad news as Problogger has been banned once but it is ok now. I hope entrecard can be unbanned soon. T

Entrecard was banned from StumpleUpon because people were selling stumples in the Entrecard marketplace.

Basically people were stumbling sites in exchange for entrecard credits and stumble upon said that this was against their rules and banned their site.

It may be unbanned now tha Graham has removed the marketplace.

Well, I think that Graham is probably right. Both Stumble Upon and Entrecard serve the same basic purpose of increasing web traffic. However, Entrecard does limit its scope to blogs.
