Article Spinning And How To Identify Spun Content

Red man=spinners. White men=quality hubbers

Red man=spinners. White men=quality hubbers

Article spinning is very popular these days as many people take a reasonably good article they find somewhere and redo it to make it their own. Hubpages has been very vigilant in getting rid of such rubbish but some always seep through the cracks. Your help is needed to get rid of spun articles on this site so please do your part.

During our quest to weed out these bad influences on our system we must be careful not to flag hubs that do not deserve to be flagged. I am concerned that my previous hub does not explain what a spun article is and might have people flagging hubs they think might be spun. There are many hubbers whose first language is not English and those hubbers' hubs may seem a little hard to read. I implore you to make sure the hubbers' first language is not English before flagging.

Check the hubber's profile to know if the hubber is from a non English speaking country. Check some of that hubber's comments to see their natural way of communicating (comments and forums). In order to do this you can check their hubtivity. I know it's a lot of work, but no one likes their hub flagged, don't do it unless you are sure.

What is Spinning?

I am not going to use any technical terms to define spinning. It it simply re-arranging articles to appear unique or original. If you own the copyright to an article and you rewrite it several times to get five different articles that is not bad at all. However many website and blog owners used to copy content from the web, but the Search Engine Results Page (SERP) would flag these contents and penalize the site. Those owners now found a way to redo the articles that confuse or trick SERP. They copy the content but rearrange the words so that the article reads differently.

There are different ways of spinning an article.

  • Using synonyms - this way, certain words are changed several times using similar words. An example. "Drink water to replenish and rehydrate," a spun version would read like this, "Consume|Intake|ingest|have water to refill|fill up and supply|furnish| render." In this one sentence you have ten different sentences. So one article can render dozens of articles when spun. The problem with spinning is that the articles that are spun (1)are generally copied content, (2) very badly spun using bad software. The badly spun article would read something like this, "Refill water ingest to and furnish," which does not make sense.
  • Using a software - there are two options; the synonym software and a general spinning software. After you install your spinner, copy your content there and click a button, your article is spun. The synonym finder is slightly different as you get to choose which synonyms to replace.
  • Manually spinning the article by using synonyms and rewriting to make sense.

A spinner can refer to the person or the software but usually the software. Persons who spin articles manually call themselves writers.

How to Identify Spun Content on HP

There are articles that are so cleverly spun that it is very hard to detect because they read smoothly and make sense to the reader. The articles we are calling a red alert to are those that are badly spun and easy to detect.

An article that is definitely spun and badly done, is one that has random words that, when read, confuses and confounds the reader making absolutely no sense. These are my own words, but much easier to understand than some technical term or phrases I found somewhere. Below are two versions of the same article. The first one is the original and the second I used a spinner I found online to do the damage to my article.

Here is an excerpt from one of my articles:-

"Use relevant tags for your content. The HP system will generate a number of tags to assist you but not all of them will be relevant. Imagine searching for "Black dogs for pets" in Google and you are brought to an article about a cat that was chased by a black dog. The author may have used the "black dog pet" tag, but the article was not about the black dog for pet. In other words, use your tags wisely and you are on your way to getting search engine friendly."


Here is a badly spun version:-

"Use to the point metal points by reason of your ease. The HP a whole power of determination engender a digit of metal points to befriend you no more than not aggregate of them power of choosing be appropriate. Imagine keen by reason of Shortcoming dogs because of darlings in Google and you're brought to a member end for end a cat that was run after give word toed by a color dog. The original may have used the Color dog fondling metal point, only the clause wasn't hind part before the color dog because of favorite. In other discourse, exercise your metal points wisely and you're on your advance of acquirement pursuit machine amiable."


The online spinner I found did something unidentifiable with my beautifully written article. I hope this helps when looking for spun articles.

A little Addition - Update

Many times these so called articles get bypassed by the system because only the first 1, 1-1/2 or 2 paragraphs are written properly, as in original. Then two things may happen why they are bypassed:-

  1. The search engines only crawl your first paragraph and pick random keywords or tags from the middle and end of your article.
  2. Some readers do not read an entire article, they skim through thus missing this kind of rubbish.

It is important to read all of the article once you hit the page, otherwise you may end up voting up one of these articles.

yeah, some people are just not creative enough to make their own but what can we do? some discoveries too have been thought by multiple people and that is sad

Maher on June 16, 2014:

thanks

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on March 05, 2014:

Hello Awle, this article was really created specifically for HP community. At the time there were many hubbers who had no idea what was happening when happened upon spun content. Some even though it was a computer glitch. Before HP introduced the QAP, there were countless spun articles on the site, hence this hub to inform the community.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your take on the matter. Have a great day :)

Al Aber on March 05, 2014:

Thanks for this engaging post, but you probably should have explored many other reasons these "Spun" articles are created. They are not meant to be for human readers...but for search engine bots. I do spin PLR articles, Software+me, and make sure the output is readable. But i wouldn't post them here, i post them in a number of places for "Backlink" purposes. It is for the search engines to see the post, credit the link that directs to my MONEY SITE, which helps the ranking.

This is a game big SEO related internet marketers play, it has no end in sight. You tell me it doesn't work, i prove it wrong, you say it will eventually be detected, yeah..but by then the gurus have designed a better plan...i am not one of those guys though, but i get some help from their services, sometimes. Thanks again

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on December 14, 2012:

Hi Jenggracehodges, just flag the article the usual way. It may take some time for HP to respond but they will and more than likely will remove it. IF you happen to still see the article around just ask a few hubber friends to flag it as well, the more flags it gets the faster the response as it moves to the top of the queue. These articles do not belong on the site.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on December 14, 2012:

Hi Mary, you are right when it comes to flagging these hubs. Making money off spinning is quite different as most clients request the articles are done manually. I have made it quite clear on Elance that I do not accept that kind of job so no client in their right mind will invite me to do a job like that.

Mary Hyatt from Florida on December 14, 2012:

I have seen 2-3 Hubs that sounded liked gibberish: I flagged them. I never realized there was software to enable people to do this. I still can't understand how someone could make money from doing this.

Jen Hodges from Southeastern United States on December 14, 2012:

Thanks for the information. I recently came upon an article via hub hopping that had several weird words that were seemingly synonyms to the words that should have been there. The article was obviously badly spun.

What do you do to an article that is badly spun? What is the correct way to report it?

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 14, 2012:

Hello there Skater314159, thank you so much! I am glad I could help. People are stealing and rewriting and that makes it hard to catch them because they redo the articles. Let's fight this online madness. Thanks for stopping by.

Skater314159 on November 13, 2012:

Hi! I searched "what is spun content" & I found your great article ! Thanks for explaining & giving example... I heard this term used, but I didn't know what it even meant. Now I do, and I can't believe people do this. I am making blogs and getting ready to Tweet World War One in real time (hopefully in Englisch & German, simultaneously). I will be angry if people steal my content, I'm working hard on!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 05, 2012:

Hi Dolores, wow, that is great. I wrote this hub specifically for HP users, I had no idea that it would be indexed so well. I never really checked to see where it ranked even though I do get some traffic from Google. Thanks for letting me know and thank you for stopping by. I hope you got the information you needed.

Dolores Monet from East Coast, United States on October 05, 2012:

Although I had some inkling of what spun content was, I wanted to be more informed. So I googled "what is spun content" and there you are right at the top of page one, the second article (I think it was).

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on August 06, 2012:

Hello TamaraWhilhite, the best way to tell if an article is spun is when it reads like gibberish or it does not make sense at all. I use Copyscape to determine if my articles have been copied but am not sure it they cover spun articles. Many articles that also appear to be great articles have been spun. When a writer takes information and rewrites it in their own words, technically it has been spun, but you have no legal recourse for spun content, only copied content.

Tamara Wilhite from Fort Worth, Texas on August 06, 2012:

Excellent article. What websites or resources do you recommend to determine if content is spun or if someone has spun your own article?

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on May 25, 2012:

Thanks Ibrahim.

Ibrahim Vet from Egypt on May 25, 2012:

Great Article ... Thank you for clarification :)

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on May 25, 2012:

lol, Hi Chris. The first time it happened to me I was shocked. I couldn't understand it at all. It was while freelancing that a client mentioned spinning articles and then I did the research found out what it was. Articles spun with a software are garbage.

Chris Hugh on May 24, 2012:

Good article. I flag spun articles all the time. It took me a while to figure out how an article could start out well and so quickly deteriorate into gibberish. I thought it was mistranslation or poor English or maybe insanity. Well, now I know:)

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on May 24, 2012:

Hi Angelo, I totally agree with you there. Readers will think it's the norm here on HP and not want to return. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Angelo52 on May 24, 2012:

Good article. I have run into these on occasion, not only on Hubpages but other places also. When I am sure what they are I tag them.

Afterall, badly written Hubs affect all Hub writers because non-Hub readers who read a bad Hub will consider Hub Pages to be a content spinner site and not come back.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on May 24, 2012:

Sky2day, yes you could email team but flagging the content would also be enough. When you flag the content place a paragraph in the comment that pops up when you hit the flag button. Choose a paragraph that sounds weird. 95% of the spun articles have very illegible content in some parts of the article. Sometimes it's one line or a whole paragraph. Thanks for stopping by.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on May 24, 2012:

Hey Jpcmc, yes they are to be flagged no doubt about it. Of all the violations I take this the most serious because not only is it stealing, when you spin you are messing with someone's work. It's lazy and people who spin are not real writers.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on May 24, 2012:

Hi Rebecca, spinning is frowned upon online especially by search engines. If you want to make it online you have to keep your content fresh. If you have two websites or blog, I would suggest manually rewriting the articles with a different twist or just not posting similar content on both. Thanks for dropping in.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on May 24, 2012:

Hi Lisa, I never knew about it either until I started writing on HP and the first time I saw it I was blown away at the garbage I was reading. Keep and eye open. Thanks for stopping by.

skye2day from Rocky Mountains on May 24, 2012:

cardisa Thank you for sharing this info!! I do not know if I would recognize a spun article. Sounds like the content could be horrific so who would continue to read? If the content is good who would know, if in fact it was spun? I would only hope the writer would discover the fraud and soon! Well, we do reap what we sow! The spinners will get busted sooner or later. Too bad that there are greed busters and or wanna be's out there. There are all types in our world. Sounds kinda funny in a sort of way but I feel sorry for them. They are lost!

No weapon formed against us, shall prosper. Isaiah 54:7

Could u email the hub team with your info about the writer that could be spinning content? God Bless U sister. Voted up girl.

JP Carlos from Quezon CIty, Phlippines on May 24, 2012:

I've read a lot of spun articles here. It's really important to flag them and inform HP. I see a lot of these when hub hopping..

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on May 24, 2012:

Thanks for this Cardisa. So much to learn! I am using imautomator and spinning is an option.I am clueless about how it really works, though as far as the spinning goes. Thanks for making me realize how little I know, LOL. Will have to learn!

Lisa from WA on May 24, 2012:

I'd never heard of this before, most likely due to how new I still am to writing online. I will definitely keep this in mind as I read articles. Thanks for explaining in such clear terms with really helpful examples.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on February 28, 2012:

Brinafr3sh, yes, articles spinning is a knock off that lazy people use to make money off of the people who work very hard. Thanks for stopping by and please enjoy your day.

Brinafr3sh from West Coast, United States on February 27, 2012:

Hi Cardisa, now I know what 'article spinning' is, I always wanted to know. Article spinning seems like "cheap knock-offs of the original." Thanks a lot.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on February 10, 2012:

LOL....You should see some of the stuff we find on HP. If it wasn't to annoying it would be funny. Thanks for reading.

VendettaVixen from Ireland on February 10, 2012:

Thanks for the information - I had an idea of what a spinner might be, but this clarified it for me.

I imagine it's very hard to proove someone's manually spun one of your articles, since they could just say it's a coincedence that they used similar terms to you.

That spun paragraph was hillarious. I've made a note to spin some of my own stuff next time I need a good laugh!

Thanks again.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on December 31, 2011:

Donna, don't hesitate to flag them when you see them. I don't! We cannot tolerate that kind of garbage here.

Thanks again Donna, really appreciate the visits.

Donna Cosmato from USA on December 31, 2011:

In my former life as a manager, it always amazed me to see how hard some folks would work to get out of just doing the job and getting it done. It seems like those same individuals have found a new tool in this spinning software you reference.

How sad...just think of what they might achieve if they channeled that energy into creative writing :( Voted up...we all work too hard on producing quality content to let the few bad apples spoil the site.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on December 10, 2011:

Hi Jean, actually it doesn't take long because there are many spinning software out there. The ones that are manually spun are almost undetectable.

Thanks for stopping by.

Jean Bakula from New Jersey on December 10, 2011:

Thanks for the great and easy to understand explanation. I have read one or two "spun" articles, and flagged them, but didn't know that was the correct term. It's a shame some people resort to that, since it seems to take as long as it would to write a relevant ariticle.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on December 03, 2011:

Very welcome :)

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on December 03, 2011:

Cool! Thank you so much!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on December 03, 2011:

RH, of course I don't mind. Go ahead and link! Thanks!

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on December 03, 2011:

Hey Cardisa - I hope you don't mind if I link this hub to one I am working on now? I will check back with you before I publish:) thanks!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 30, 2011:

Thank you so much for reading. They don't do any work on the articles at all, they use a software to do the work for them.

mljdgulley354 on November 30, 2011:

What a waste of time. Thank you for this excellent hub. Why would anyone waste precious time reworking someone elses article? I haven't to my knowledge run into this but now I will know when I do.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 15, 2011:

Thank you Homestead. Can't wait to read.

Cindy Murdoch from Texas on November 15, 2011:

Cardisa - I included your hub in my hub luv series for this week. Great hub!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 12, 2011:

Hi BB, thank YOU for reading and commenting. I hope you found it informative ans useful.

bangingbeauty on November 12, 2011:

Hi Cardisa, thanks for putting up this article to explain what is spinning. I look forward to reading more of your hubs. Cheers, BB

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 11, 2011:

Shhh. I don't want the spinners to know I have been flagging them.

Thanks Alastar.

Alastar Packer from North Carolina on November 11, 2011:

Excellent hub on those spinners and spun articles Cardisa, it's a spun jungle out there sometimes. They're the ones you can flag with pleasure. To put it in historical terms, you're Joan of Arc expelling the spinners from HP land, and we're your faithful followers!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 11, 2011:

Homestead, we need to get rid of the spinners from HP. Thanks for reading.

Cindy Murdoch from Texas on November 11, 2011:

I asked a question in the forums just these week in the forums about spinners, so I was glad to see this come up on my feed. Great comparison to help someone like me know the difference. Thanks!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 11, 2011:

Leann, I agree with you. It's like being in the writers twilight zone!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 11, 2011:

You are so lucky Hattie. Whenever I hub hop I see them at least three times per week! Maybe they are attracted to me or something...lol

Mostly it's the new hubbers without a face with some weird name that post them.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on November 11, 2011:

Spun articles are my greatest bane here on HP. I can tolerate just about anything else. I even understand someone not familiar with the rules posting their own content from another site here, but posting crap just freaks me out. So Don rant all you want!

leann2800 on November 11, 2011:

Yikes! spun article and really bad article. They are a synonym horror show.

Hattie from Europe on November 11, 2011:

Can't say I've seen many of the articles, and I read a lot all over the internet. :) Thanks for showing me though! I just must gravitate towards good articles! lol

Don Bobbitt from Ruskin Florida on November 11, 2011:

Cardisa, we are seeing far too much of this from the Far East recently.

I commented earlier today on a question concerning HP and them adding a grammar checker.

My point was that, this, in itself would aid many of the "content spinners" to get more Hubs out there onto HP, just to try to make money. Sic!

I guess that, personally, I just hate for my time to be taken up stumbling through the first few paragraphs of one of these submissions, before I realize what I am looking at. And, boom, I have just wasted 5 more minutes of my life on trash! Sorry, I was falling into a Rant!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 30, 2011:

Thank you Gloshei.

Gloria from France on October 30, 2011:

Yes I am thanks to your great hub.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 29, 2011:

I hope you are better equipped to identify spun content now Gloshei.

Gloria from France on October 29, 2011:

Thanks Cardisa,

I have never heard of spinning before this one will definitely be bookmarked so I can read it again to fully understand.

Great hub.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 28, 2011:

Eye Say, thank you for reading and commenting. I am happy to be of help,

eye say from Canada on October 27, 2011:

I had heard of it but didn't understand, great article,very clear, Thanks!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 24, 2011:

I also agree Rasw, hardworking writers should never have to compete with such garbage.

rasw on October 24, 2011:

Very interesting hub. I had never heard of spinning and I agree with Will it's so dishonest and stupid!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 24, 2011:

Writer who freelance face this problem all the time. The other day a job was posted to rewrite some articles for a client. I was awarded the job but I declined when I he explained that he wanted them spun.

Karla Domanski from Cadillac, Michigan on October 24, 2011:

As a content writer, I was once asked to gather ten articles on a particular topic and then rewrite them. He didn't care where I found the articles. Of course it was a big "NO". I offered to write original articles, but he didn't want to pay for originals. "Spinning" isn't much different, but it seems a bit worse. Not only is it stealing, it degrades quality work! Great hub!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

To figure that out James means you don't live in a bubble, you just not into the internet much, which isn't a bad thing. The geeks who create viruses are the ones that create shortcut software that can cheat any system, they have nothing better to do. The weird thing about it is that every Government has one on it's payroll, CIA, FBI and Army.

James W. Nelson from eastern North Dakota on October 23, 2011:

Good job, Cardisa, I had no idea. I must live in a bubble. The people who write that type of software probably also write viruses.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

I flagged about five spun hubs today. The best way to find them is to go to the new hubbers page or click on hubs, then latest and scroll to the hubs with no avatar and some weird names. Look at the title and see how it reads, sometimes the title is also spun. Most spun articles are about health, product reviews and Internet.

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on October 23, 2011:

You know Cardisa - now I am dying to find time to hub hop so I can search for some just to see if I could find one:). I thought - I bet a bunch of people are going to keep their eyes open too. Great point that it keeps HubPages a better place to write for us and I'm so glad about that because I really love this place!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

I can imagine...LOL and their homework was spun translation...LOL

Stephanie Das from Miami, US on October 23, 2011:

Wow, this spun content reminds me of when I was tutoring kids who were learning English. Sometimes they'd just translate their papers into English with Google and turn it in to me, and it read like a spun article. It made no sense whatsoever, and it got them a big F.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

You should see the gunk I read this morning. I flagged about ten hubs today.

FloraBreenRobison on October 23, 2011:

I came up with it by just not looking at the keyboard and pressing keys, occasionally looking down to press the space bar. I've seen hubs like these.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

Definitely!

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on October 23, 2011:

Well hopefully! Lol

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

Thank you RH, we all learn from each other.

Kelly Umphenour from St. Louis, MO on October 23, 2011:

Cardisa - thank you so much! I was reading the first hub and quickly clicked on the link to this one. I love it! I have been writing here for 8 months and I was unsure of what spun content was. I had an idea - and I would never use someone else's writing in any way!

You are so smart - I truly appreciate these hubs that really help everyone not just new people. Excellent - up and all that!

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

So true. People will never respect people who spin or copy content.

jt walters on October 23, 2011:

But I wouldn't do it anyway as I would know. The whole point is to be original in your writing to establish yourself.

JT

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

It is JT but you can't prove which or whose content was plagiarized.

JT Walters from Florida on October 23, 2011:

Thnaks Cardisa,

No spinning on hubs. I would think that is palagrism.

Thanks

JT

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

LOL, that's funny, but I think it will sound just fine coming from you....a real writer.

FitnezzJim from Fredericksburg, Virginia on October 23, 2011:

If I ever write an article on Kryptos, it will probably read like spun gobbledygook.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

You are right LL, I think it takes more time because you are not familiar with the article first hand so you have to spend time reading and going through it with a fine tooth comb to convert as many words as possible.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

LOL, Flora, how did you come up with that. You are hilarious...lol...lol...lol

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

WillStar, you are so right. These aren't writers, they are copycats and they don't deserve to be on HP. You know the weird thing. There is a writer on HP that does it manually, and the reason I know is that she has rewritten some of my content. I recognize my work but can't prove it because she does it so well. I also noticed that most of her hubs were "copies" of other hubs. She has disabled her comments capsule so no can can say anything. She has a profile score of high nineties.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

Dexter, flag them I say, it will be better for all of us in the long run.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 23, 2011:

Twodawgs, the badly spun articles will get weeded out but sometimes they are crawled before being noticed. I forgot to mention that the first one and half paragraphs are usually very well written and the search engines usually pick up the first paragraph and just a few words from the middle and end only. I have no idea how we gonna fight the manually spun article because there is no way to prove they are spun if they read well.

L.L. Woodard from Oklahoma City on October 22, 2011:

I would think that the time and effort that would go into producing a quality spun article would be greater than writing an original, unique article--at least it would be for me.

FloraBreenRobison on October 22, 2011:

And then there are the people who write this:

fhdtgh yhtryhe tft tutryur rtyty tryty tyty ty ters ry tytyuy tyrty yutyu ururty i utyru ..

WillStarr from Phoenix, Arizona on October 22, 2011:

(sigh)

If you have to resort to this sort of dishonesty, then you are not a writer.

twodawgs on October 22, 2011:

Seems to me the badly spun articles will get removed from the (proverbial) HP gene pool just by virtue of the fact they are poorly written and readers don't get anything of value from them. I am actually more concerned about the "well-spun" variety.

Dexter Yarbrough from United States on October 22, 2011:

Hi Cardisa! I tend to flag those hubs that don't meet proper hub standards as well. But I learned something about spun articles today from you.

Great hub and advice! Voted up, up and away!

Sinea Pies from Northeastern United States on October 22, 2011:

Me too.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 22, 2011:

Thank you Sinea, I really want the spinning to stop especially on HP.

Sinea Pies from Northeastern United States on October 22, 2011:

Very good clarification on an important issue. We need to be careful to produce quality, unique content every time.

Carolee Samuda (author) from Jamaica on October 22, 2011:

No, I did the spinning myself so I could have persons compare them to see the difference. I will update the hub to make it clear. Sorry for the confusion.

Marisa Hammond Olivares from Texas on October 22, 2011:

Thank you for clarifying Cardisa - I was still a bit confused earlier.

So, are you saying someone took one of your articles and did this as well? Is that what I understood from you at the end of your hub? I've been running my hubs through various plagiarism sites and have been lucky - so far.
