Now you can! It's The Content Farm! Featuring "informative articles about every topic, written by people with a passing knowledge."
Does it make me weird that I was really happy I knew about this before The Awl posted it?
This website is seriously jackin' some strat right now.
"This website" = The Awl, or The Content Farm?
My first job after earning an English degree was writing "content" for a sleazy SEO/Internet Marketing company. Mostly for small local firms who were suckered by my boss' sales pitch that "article marketing" would help them score huge returns. It was awful. I had to write 500 word garbage articles about plastic surgery or home repair even though I knew nothing about either.
My boss and the one or two true believers at the company were as loathsome and amoral as you'd expect small-time Internet marketers to be. Anyways, I'm no longer there and am no longer mucking up the Internet with crap content. And I truly am sorry for the small role I played in making the Internet annoying.

I've always considered the Awl as my Content Ant Farm.
