What is worse for an autoblog? Scraping Content or Using a Rewriter that produces garbage?

    First, I'd like to thank all of you on BHW. I've read a lot on autoblogging here so I decided to try my own. Within 1 night of going live, I got an email from another blog which I had taken full content RSS. They asked me to remove their content.

    I have Wordpress WriteAgain installed, so I activated it. The result was garbled sentences that could barely be read.

    What do you autobloggers do? Non-rewritten will get frowned upon from SE right? Rewritten looks like crap. Is there a better way?

    Just search the forum for autoblogs. This topic has been discussed in detail many times so you will get the answers and opinions that you want.

    I leave the content, usually the webmasters are happy they get some backlinks from it.

    the best is to spin the content from the rewrite program by yourself too to make it readable

    But it's not automatic :(
    I don't rewrite the content for my autoblog, the SE rank is bad but it gets constant traffic from twitter with 3000+ followers, so SE ranking doesn't matter if you have another traffic source...

    I'd say rewrite (with better software, or milder rewrite), you don't really want the users to read your article, you want them to click on adsense. That way you avoid copywrite issues (i had my share too, ran away and deleted the content like a scared little girl)
