I agree with all your points Max. And I disagree completely with the concept of spamming the search engines (that's what makes it so hard for "real" sites to get listed and/or found). But it seems to me that there are legitimate reasons to have entry pages and I think it's unfortunate that the spammers are "poisoning the well" for those legitimate uses.

For example, If a site is dynamically generated, it seems that the only way to establish a presence would be to create some entry pages, particularly if the site covers a number of different topics.

Or have I been out in the sun too long?
