What is Directory Spongiform Encephalopathy?
Directory Spongiform Encephalopathy is a common degenerative web directory disorder characterized by enlarged “directory” sub categories that give the directory a bloated or “spongy” appearance.
Research indicates that DSEs are caused by abnormal, excessive submission to and acceptance of useless web directories.
The obsessive feeding of directories to directories mirrors the absurd practice of feeding livestock slaughterhouse waste to livestock under the guise of milk replacers, calf starters and feed supplements.
Feeding ruminants to ruminants resulted in Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (Mad Cow Disease), and the corresponding practice by directory owners will yield similar, fatal results.
Symptoms of DSE vary, but commonly include degenerative internal PageRank over successive updates, a gradual reduction of SERPs and the eventual domain quarantine (removal from index).
DSEs tend to progress rapidly and usually culminate in death (zero PR) over the course of a few months. There is currently no treatment that will halt the progression of DSE, and attempts to treat the symptoms with the injection of additional citations yield no results.
A few clinical trials are underway in an attempt at finding a cure.
