SPLOGS is a term that means “SPAM BLOG.” Usually a SPLOG will be filled with automated nonsense content stolen or scraped from other sites. Usually they promote affiliate links or PPC advertisers until they get shut down for TOS abuse.
Any author listed on our site that gets reported or identified and investigated for splogging will lose their account. We do not want to associate with those who engage in SPLOGGING. The last thing we need on this planet is more SPLOGS — they are just as evil as email-based spamming.
