Splog Tool Stupidity

5.8% of all blog posts created everyday are spam. That's around 50,000 spam posts a day -- and now, they can be automated.

If you're too too stupid to get a clue on the Web, or so cynical that you think readers will mistake automated information regurgitation for actual thought, then go ahead and buy this software. $247 for an ersatz brain.

In any medium, Industrial Age marketing always tries to drown out authentic human voices with canned drivel. In the Participation Age, it will fail. I trust that the human yearning to hear real thoughts from real people will make blogspam sink to the bottom of the blogosphere's sea of thought, consumed only by the bottomfeeders who excrete it.
