Sploid isn't a blog, just a news aggregator which appropriates other sites content while making up its own sensational headlines.

Do you think it's completely automated? As far as I can see, it's not... there's some original content among the quotes, and there's an email you can send tips too. Plus, there's RSS, permalink, and typical Gawker blog layout. The only non-blog thing, according to Gawker's Nick Denton, is that headlines are ranked not by recency, but by importance.

It's certainly not a typical blog... probably more a blog-like experiment.
