I don't understand the obsession with spinning. Is there some kind of benefit I am aware of to having spun content over just syndicating content? Seems to me having tier 1 web 2.0's with syndicated content from your site would be easier and higher quality. And I would think even article directories would prefer syndicated content due to the higher quality. Big sites syndicate content all the time, seems to me all you do by spinning content into tons of content that adds no value to the user and is generally crappier than just creating syndicated content is show Google that you are trying to game them, and that your original content is worth nothing. I would even go as far to say that syndicating content adds authority to your site. What do you have to say for yourself BHW? Can anyone give me a real reason or two why I should spin my content vs. syndicating it to my tier 1 sites?
