Headline text[edit]

This page references the abreviation LCPC, but does not provide any explanation of it.

AdsBlackList.com[edit]

This sentence is essentially a commercial, it's been removed:

AdsBlackList.com has a huge database of these fraudulent MFA/LCPC sites for Adwords/Adsense members to filter, resulting in a higher ROI and better quality content.

Seems to describe autoblogging[edit]

This article describes 'autoblogging', which is used in MFA websites, rather than the wider range of MFA websites, some of which have original articles written for them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.141.96.142 (talk) 18:24, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

20.Jun.2014 : MindMatrix's version is again current version.[edit]

I (DabbleBabble) have made Mindmatrix's previous article version the current version - meaning: I have reverted so all my work has been removed, and hope that Mindmatrix, Ishdarian, and Brianhe are all pleased.
I do not understand why my requests for a discussion here on the articles talk-page have been avoided, and why I instead seem to have been targeted for an edit-war.
However! Should my wish of the elimination of my own work be disrespected, then I will take any action I see fit.
I have no longer any intention of attempting to contribute to Wikipedia - and will in no way contribute anything at all at any future time; except if the elimination of my own work is not respected, in which case no pleasant contribution will come from that.

DabbleBabble, this is a wiki, and your edits are licensed under the CC-BY-SA-3.0 license and GFDL (see below). Which basically means that they can be dug out from history and reinstated, if editors so wish. I have no intention to do that at all, but your threats are nonsense.--cyclopiaspeak! 14:50, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Global nonprofit search engine...???[edit]

This quote:

A search engine is not a scraper site itself; sites such as Yahoo and Google gather content from other websites and index it so that the index can be searched with keywords. Search engines then display snippets of the original site content in response to a user's search.

is completely out of synch with current SE practices. Right now Google, Bing, and Yahoo (the top 3 SEs) provide high/full-quality images to download right from the search engine (not thumbnails or "snipets") with no permission other than the tacit permission of NOT blocking their bots from indexing your pages (which could be deadly). There are two dozen scraper sites harvesting my images that fly right to the top of the SEs and I look like a footnote. I have a great tagging system down (I hired a contractor on a lowly artist's budget to write a program to tag bulk images with logos relative to their size, and I've spent a lot of time developing elite pro logos), but I see extremely few people doing the same. (Some people don't even think to put their name/site in their filenames.)

I mean Google isn't sinister about it, they do provide a clear "View page" link, but to compensate, there are two ways of downloading the full image instantly. An image downloads full quality when you click it and it enlarges (the preview looks small, but the full quality image has downloaded to your browser once the image gets especially crisp), then there's also a clear "View image" button if you're absolutely too clueless or lazy to click "save [full] image" from the preview! Anyway, there's some objective information out there about this (a lot of people are angry), but since the SEs control the flow of information (there are actually fake scam-detection sites that give the scraper sites A+ ratings and no complaints), there isn't a whole lot to bring to an article. I might attack the task another day, but I'm too tired of tagging to try it any time soon.

What we should have is a global nonprofit search engine akin to Wikipedia or the GNU/GPL. What'a'ya say, guys? Squish7 (talk) 19:13, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
