Roboblogger is as bad as the worthless trolls. There is nothing remotely about GLBT people nor in the other articles displayed on the link. The victims were not even the same sex as the perp. So why did he post it here? Some has programmed him to post anything with the words "child pornography" on the gay board.

I was wondering the same thing. Why is this posted in the Gay/Lesbian forums? Ii suspected just from the headline this would have nothing to do with GLBT, and having read the article, I was right. This doesn't belong here.

Everyone, write Topix with feedback. This is insulting and does not belong not the LGBT news thread, but apparently Roboblogger thinks pedophilia has something to do with gay.. They need to bring the editor program back.

The reason this article got picked up for this page has absolutely nothing to do with the article, but the news stream that appears at the top of this page as the first paragraph for the article. Roboblogger read the last sentence in the site's news feed and then grabbed the page it was on when it read it as the story. So a blurb about Putin and his anti-gay law crawling across the screen at the time was enough to give us a story about a straight pervert. You should look through their news feed for this page, the percentage of junk links like this they generate averages about 1 in 5 and they are capable of generating entire pages of links added to the feed in error. We're lucky that the junk gets added to the forum is as infrequent as it is.

Huh, you sound like you're in the inside. That all makes sense for what I know. Roboblogger reminds me of like how search engines once worked.

It's a combination of factors. I've had to work with computers since the days of punch cards and tape to tape copying. All programs are only as bright as those who wrote them. When Roboblogger views any page, it scans for tens of thousands of key words and sorts it appropriately to the forums those key words serve. Since it is a snapshot of the page when it got there, anything live at the time also gets scanned and tossed into the mix, even if it disappears later, as in this case. It also doesn't look for context. I learned this from them four or five years ago, when I posted a story to this forum which contained an unfortunate reference to a Spongebob Squarepants rectal thermometer. Did you know that there is a Spongebob Squarepants forum here and that it automatically cross-posts to a Nickelodeon forum? They had to spike the story on this forum to keep it from reappearing on the others, because Roboblogger is programmed to recheck its work on stuff already on the site some place in its never ending pursuit of key words to find and sort.

You are older than I had you figured. I also worked with punch cards. Not only from using them in my accounting, but in my youth I had a job with a printing company that printed them, and also was a Card Punch Operator. That was back in the mid 1960s.

That's funny, but I think somebody ought to get in there and adjust Roboblogger's algorithm. As it so happens, a large amount of my experience includes SEO and bot programming. For any given article, the largest portion of text usually is most relevant. From what I see, Roboblogger should have ignored the article for lacking a substantial amount of text in any one of its <p> tags, and likely, this is the reason it grabbed a completely irrelevant summary. In addition, it is not conducting an effective keyword analysis. Had it checked keyword weight, length, and word position against words in the document title, <meta>, and <h1> tags, and permuted prases, then the simplest algorithm could determine that the following summary lacks relevance. After assessing the largest portions of text, a good algorithm would have marked all of it as either irrelevant or insubstantial.

I learned to keypunch in college in the early 80's, when I was working in NY in the late 80's, it was pretty much the dawn of the computerization of Wall St and there were so many different freaking systems you had to get used to. I started with an AT&T computer in a bar-sized, upright video game console, it had a black and white screen and a keyboard in place of a control panel. Fortunately the beast had wheels, it had to be turned to keep the sun off the screen.

My college days were in the mid sixties. However, I went to night school, and worked during the day. I wish I could have experienced attending a college campus during the day, and maybe joining a frat, but there wasn't enough money in the family. Speaking of operating office machines, do you know what a teletype machine is, or rather was? I worked on one for many years. Got up to a speed of something like 150 words a minute. Oh, oh. I'm getting nostalgic. I better quit.

An algorithm is only as smart as those who created it and the ones to blame for this one, well... it isn't just this forum which pays the price, it's a problem that exists on all of them.

I made it through school by juggling small scholarships and student loans. My parents really couldn't afford to put me through college. I went to a commuter university, it didn't have much of a college life to it and I was rarely ever there. I was on the debate team, did speech competitions and model united nations, I went to classes Tuesday evenings, all day Wednesday and Thursday mornings, if I was lucky, because I traveled to tournaments every weekend, of one form or another, 30-35 times a year. I spent more time at other colleges and universities than I did my own.

Not every minute, not all the trips were particularly good ones. Wichita was a place not to be in the early 80's, but it was worth my while and I did end up with a fairly good education that I ended up putting to entirely different uses.
