Why is technorati so easy to game?

Look through technorati seems like a reasonable way to generate new ideas for your site, blog or cart, right? I mean, let’s just do a quick search for shopping carts and see what people are talking about. Wow – Ashop sure is popular. In fact, according to many bloggers,

Ashop Commerce is a leading US provider of hosted shopping cart software that offers a complete solution for merchants to sell online.

Has anyone in human history other than a paid pitchman used the phrases “leading provider” and “complete solution” in a single sentence? And why can’t technorati filter out obvious splog postings? And why on earth is Ashop using this idiotic strategy?
