Auto Blogs, Does That Really Work?

Dear MMD Friends,

When I first came across the ideas of Auto-Blog, it seems like a great idea.
Tried 3 years back, but never really got any good results with them.

Does anyone have good or bad experience with Auto-Blogs?

If you have a Good one, please share how you do it ( The software and possible the niche)?

I personally don't think autoblogs are a very good idea at all after the recent Google updates that is like asking to be deranked. I personally outsourced my SEO.
