    Hey, if I use a 500 word article and use 4 versions of each sentence each with their own word variations, how many articles could I produce for a site I'd like to keep long-term, in other words how do you tell when you've reached that prime threshold?

    nice question :)
    I'd say around 24 to be on the safe side.

    Why? You have ~500 words/ article. You need at least 30% uniqueness, which I hope you'll get from changing about 1/4 of the article at the time plus some word variations.
    I can safely assume your article as being composed as a set of 4 large phrases or paragraphs of about 125 words each, that you can spin individually. Since order is important, this leaves 24 working combinations.

    This is how I look at the problem, I hope it helps. Take care with keyword peppering and common words (and, or, if, is, it etc), they are counted as words and duplicate a lot.

    Good luck!

    Spinning an article till it becomes blackhat? That is a new one to me. I don't think that is possible. I do believe that you might get a duplicate content penalty if the articles are not differentiated enough from each other. If the articles are at least 30% different, I believe it doesn't matter how many you have.

    I am not sure how you mean to use these articles, but I wouldn't put multiple articles covering the same topic on my site. What I mean is that I wouldn't put up 10 spun articles on how to pick out the best widget. I would put up 10 spun articles if the were covering different aspects of widgets (picking the best one, how to use, were to buy, how to get one cheap, ect....)

    Until it reads like it was written by a blind dyslexic Ukranian whore out on the piss one night. Then it becomes blackhat :)
