The "SimSpore" thing was based entirely on the fact that simspore.com was, I believe, registered by EA. Besides, Will Wright has said that he wants to work on something that's not another Sim game.
Meaning: Your fears are mostly baseless. Move along, citizen.
Will Wright, the original.

Because otherwise, nobody would have registered that and redirected to a shock site! People are just too nice for that to happen on the internet!

To put this to rest:

Quote from: Will Wright in an interview with Wired
WN: What do you think about people calling Spore "Sim Everything?"

Wright: That was actually my first choice for a name. I thought I would call it Sim Everything, but we needed a secret name for the project, and our lead artist, Ocean Quigley, said, "How about Spore?"

The more we thought about it, the more we liked it. It just felt right. It works on different levels: You start as a little spore-like thing, but also you're seeding life in the world, and you're spreading it like a spore. Also, the content you're creating, that's very much what Spore is: the compressed representation of something that you send around and which propagates.

Also, not putting "Sim" in front of it was very refreshing to me. It feels like it wants to be breaking out into a completely different thing than what Sim was.
