    From a programmers point of view, what exactly is happening behind the scenes? Are autoblogs just taking RSS feeds, and posting them as...well, posts? If so, then where does the original and unique factor come from? Are they going through a synonym translator, or something related to that?

    For example, are they taking the sentence "Wet Dogs, and changing them to "Soaked Puppies", "Drenched Canines", "Dripping Mutts", "Saturated Pooch", "Soggy Hound", etc? If that's the case, than it wouldn't work 100% of the time, as it wouldn't exactly make sense.

    Sometimes they do not make any sense. It all depends on the type of autoblog you have
    If you have one where it just takes the rss feed and places it on your website it keeps the same content. But if you have it use a plugin such as caffinated content then I think it takes the words and finds synonyms for them. Sometimes it comes out very well but sometimes it comes out horrible
