    Hi,

    Kontent Machine scrapes articles from the web and even inserts images.

    Where does all this come from? Its not our content so isnt this some kind of stealing content and images?

    Yes. Half of the BHW is in jail right now because of that. Be careful.

    Some of us get to use computers if we conduct "good behavior".

    Kontent Machine is totally safe, it scrapes content that is in the public domain and creates completely unique content. Hope this clears up your confusion...

    is this guy above banned because of his "rude" remark?

    So, there is no problem in using it you say. Is all content really taken from public domain sources?

    I was also curious if he was banned because of that remark.

    Doubt it, not really offensive, clearly he said something silly :) anyway discussing banned people is not allowed.

    Non-sense isn't allow specially during serious conversation.

    Yes, all content bots pick data from web but their quality and performance based on perfect spinning of that content.

    This is actually one of the kindest and sweetest things we do here.
    You should see how people are building links.
    Not to talk about monetizing as well.
    Some of them really end up in jail :)

    To prevent doing illegal things like Kontent Machine I go to websites, zoom the browser in on the text, take a photo of my screen, load the photo onto the pc and use Text Recognition on it. Then I consider it mine to use freely.

    It's similar to what I do but instead of text recognition I hand type it just to stay under the radar of Google

    It's not illegal, if you use it wisely.
