ctwxman writes: "To confirm some suspicions, I did a Google search on my site. It would instantly tell me which of my pages were most popular. I was stunned. The list was long and mainly consisted of pages I hadn't entered! The pages were virtually 100% made of keywords and links. They were obviously computer generated without human intervention. I clicked on one. The address bar in my browser read I went to my web server and looked for the files that made up this page. They weren't there. Though the address bar said, if you manually typed the web address you'd get a 404 error — page not found! Something was very fishy."

From The New York Times: "And unlike consumers looking for music and other media, viewers of pornography do not seem to mind giving up brand-name producers and performers for anonymous ones, or a well-lighted movie set for a ratty couch at an amateur videographer's house." I believe the Times is saying, "content is kink!""
