Article Spinning

Article spinning tools piece together an article for you using portions of text from multiple sites to form a title, intro, body and conclusion.  Choose to do this manually or auto-generate an article/essay.  You can determine the total number of words, sentences per paragraph, and also alter text with the synonym database.
