The only thing that Cuil has succeeded in doing with Cpedia is in possibly replicating the effects of brain damage. Cpedia isn't powered by artificial intelligence. It is an exercise in natural stupidity.

We need more Cuil news. Cuil, please keep launching new products, this is the funniest thing I have seen in weeks.

Regurgipedia.com - wonderful.

This has almost got me convinced its worth adopting IcrediBill's whitelist only approach to crawlers - the thing holding me back now is not "is it a good idea" , but "is it worth the effort".

Actually it's less effort.

Blacklisting means you analyze and chase everything and block new things you find.

Whitelisting means you only let in new things as needed, you never chase anything causing trouble because they're already blocked.

I just figured that at some point their IT department might notice and... uh.. regurgitate.. or block it.

(They also don't seem to have chosen a canonical).

IT department - assuming they have one? More likely a "fire and forget" scenario.
