On Tuesday, the Dallas Morning News filed a lawsuit (complaint embedded below) against HS, a Wisconsin woman, and a company they believe she is connected to, alleging rampant copyright infringement of their content.

I remember all the users of spinners out there at one time or another, posting barely readable junk posts on WPW, even V7N. They mostly came out of the blue, no relation to the thread/forum topics and were (guessing) about 500-800 words or so.

Speaking of SEO's, I wonder where the likes of Will, Steve and John are these days. :?:

Did a bit of colaboration with Morestar a few years back. He actually set up a Skype call between John, himself and I. It was certainly and interesting converstation.
