    The Problem With User Contributed Content. GreyEnlightenment.com

    "Awhile back I discussed how ‘user contributed content’ (UCC) is clogging Google, but I wanted to address the issue again, because it’s a bigger problem than many think, and Google’s response to the problem of content farms may still be inadequate. UCC is like the ‘new spam’…one that is very stealthy but also so commonplace you may not even recognize it, with perhaps the only sign being reading an article from a purportedly reputable publication but feeling miffed or annoyed afterwards because the article was so vague or generic as to not justify the commitment of time to read it, or perhaps the content didn’t live up to its headline.

    I just checked the link URL and it works still for me.

    The observation that struck me was of comments so vague or generic as to not justify the time to read them or that don't live up to their headline..

    I just put David McBeth back on my ignore list after realizing that a large fraction of its entries were obsolete (HankT and LEO229 and Interceptor Knight) and clearing it out - like fall cleaning of an old attic, blow out the cobwebs.

    I have been finding the articles at GreyEnlightenment enlightening, underscored by the fact that I found the site through that 'Hub' site which must remain unnamed.

    I note also news that Indonesia is moving to prohibit public use of 'memes' as bullying(!) while not quite understanding what is a meme - as the article makes clear. It also cited knowyourmeme.com; which I believe is Safe For Work.
