A lot of comments and responses on my official and personal blogs have been
redirected to similar machine generated blogs. I thought they were spammed
and eventually taken down. Blogspot and Wordpress tries quite hard to keep
out machine generated content, going by some of their help sections on spam

There was something on AOIR (or a similar list, my apologies if i got it
wrong) that discussed machine generated spam content. Will post it as soon
as i find it in the archives.

Is anyone on the list aware of studies that examined machine generated
