Automatic Posting in WordPress = Splog
Nina reported that someone stole her content which was not under Creative Commons License. In fact, Nina produced a screenshot of it. Guess what, it was also posted on the same website who copied some of her photos in Flickr.
kasi kung human yan eh bakit naman siya mag post ng photo na katulad nung pinost ko?
Translation: If the post is really produced by a human being, why would he post a photo like that I’ve posted.
And I realized that it’s indeed a splog. The splogger could have used this framework or perhaps made a hack on the available plugins for WordPress and abused it.
The next time you went blog-hopping, you may want to check if it’s a splog or not. Lorelle has a post about spotting a splog.
