I was watching my favorite TV show The Good Wife last night, They had a court case on Socilbots. A Socialbot is designed to repackage comments and gossip by others and disperse it on to sites so it can drive interested users back to your site. Stated from the TV Show.
I found this information after watching the show.

Any of you ever tried this software or know where to get a real good working version of it?
