Cleanup Stage 2.
A second run through the listings has identified another set of blogs that have now been deleted from the Blog directory.
Many of these fell into either sites that had been wiped clean, and reverted to the default page for whatever service or operating system they are using, the rest were of a more pesky nature.
By pesky, I mean when the blogs in question were originally submitted, they would have contained genuine content, then at some point after acceptance, the contents were removed and replaced with ‘generated’ content.
The generated content is designed so that it could appear to be a English language document, with keywords inserted on a fairly regular basis. However, it is just garbage really, sentences merged together at random via software.
A few other blogs that had not been updated for years were also removed, and more sites that had moved have had their details updated.
