Comment Re:Ad revenue for contributors? Bad idea (Score 1) 272

I can see it now: people will just insert stubs (or copy articles from other sources) for subjects that are likely to be popular search terms, for the sole purpose of reaping the ad revenues.

I guess Google will have an easy way in finding articles copied from other sources. For what I've heard, they have a pretty big database of all the documents published on the net in various formats ;)

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
