I know it is not polite to open a thread just to be mean about someone else's hub. But I thought I could raise a smile by sharing the delights I have just found.
'Have you ever realized how a girl's shoes build her happy?'
'If you compliment a woman on her shoes, her face will immediately light-weight up'
and repeatedly 'combine of shoes' which took me a while to work out was in a 'pair of shoes'.
Only sharing because the saddness of all the spun articles I have seen today made my face heavy, but reading the article out loud made my face light-weight up
Someone here on HubPages has taken articles from me on other sites and spun them for this site. I reported them numerous times and so did a lot of other people who he stole from and HP just made it seem like no big deal. His spun article is still published and actually outranks my original one which really pisses me off. What pisses me off the most is how obvious it is and yet HP won't delete the hub.
I appears to me that English is not this person's first language. Why not drop them an line and see if they could use a little help?
From the same article: "If you routinely notice yourself confused when you are around girls, it's ok to appear at the floor! Just ensure your eyes are scanning the room for the most popular combine of shoes. Or if you're a small amount a lot of conservative...."
I wonder if its making any money? Pretty depressing if it is?
Did anyone flag the profile so HP staff could "do something"?
Haha, that's classic. They could at least use a paid subscription to an article spinner that will at least proofread the article a bit before sending it off to the masses to be chuckled at.
I enjoy finding these articles-- they can make one appear at the floor laughing.
And you don't have to worry about hurting someone's feelings. They can't read this.
Shouldn't this be in the religious forums with the other talking in tongues thread ?
The real mind-boggling thing for me is when I actually find myself trying to figure out what the article is supposed to be saying. At least for awhile, I'll actually get drawn in and kind of approach it as if it's a puzzle. (Then I can aggravated and flag it. ) I suppose it's human nature to think something is "just an error" until you get more "evidence".
I read a hub recently where the english was poor. I can understand that and actually applaud people trying to write in a language that is foreign to them. What did annoy me however, was the number of spelling mistakes. Lot instead of got, mut instead of but etc. Simple spellings which got worse further into the article. It seemed like the writer had started off with good intentions then got bored with it all and had not proof read it all.
I agree that doing this in a language you were not born with is difficult and something to applaud. I have enough trouble (spelling and typos) in my own.
I wish them well, and hope someday they will all improve to the point where they can even appreciate the humor caused by a few mis-used words.
I go around to blogs on entrecard. I used to thing they were spinning but when they have a pagerank of 4 you need to reassess. It is that they write in their own language and have it translated into English. That is where it breaks down, I think.

I'm looking for a sentence or two that are obviously spun from an article spinner program. I've been told they are easy to pick out, but want a few solid examples please.

As I read and try to learn about the internet, I keep running across people talking about content spinners. Isn't the content that they create considered duplicate content? Or not? Does anyone use them for any other applications? Are there good applications for them? I'm curious on what everyone...

I know that many people don't like HP cracking down, but I personally am hoping that HubPages will continue to find new ways in 2012 to encourage the good writers on here and discourage the spammers and spinners - I really do think that it helps the site's reputation overall with Google and the...
