eHow = garbage, junk, crap and worthless content

For a fairly long time now I've avoided clicking on any eHow links in my search results.  This is because I had formed an impression that I would be unlikely to find what I was looking for on their site. Today I indulged and looked at the site a few times.

Wow -- and I mean this -- total junk.  I did a search on the site itself and and read the Wikipedia article on it and it is so obvious in retrospect.  The site is a content mill.  They don't care or even attempt to offer useful content.  Their goal is to show up in search results to generate a click-through... and that is how they make their money.

To their credit, the search engine DuckDuckGo filters out (eliminates) results from eHow.  Hopefully Google will get on this soon as well.
