However, her basic premise was, I think, flawed. She blamed the technology behind Sphinn. I blame the people.
Now, let me clarify this a moment. Im not having a go at Danny or Rob, or any of the people behind Sphinn as an entity. No, I blame the community that sits on it.
Ive no problem with people submitting their own content. Ive no problem with pimping for votes. The problem is that your content is probably unoriginal at best, and rubbish at worst.
With that out of the way, heres where I think the solution lies...
Someone needs to build a Techmeme for the search industry. Something bot powered and human edited, to make it less simple to get crap on the homepage.
The question I want to ask then is simple: should Sphinn be abandoned for this model, or should someone build this style of site, and then they can co-exist?
What do *you* think?
