A few days ago I posted about a spam comment I got, and now that post is getting spam comments.

I appreciate a tremendous publish, can study your personal others content. thanks for your thinking for this, I really felt a lttle bit thump by this article. Thanks again again! You commit a good time. Portrays natures best by the fantastic facts here. I feel that when more individuals considered it that way, they’d possess a better time frame receive the suspend ofing the difficulty.

Excellent, feel a little bit thump, spammers!

Yeah, I don’t have anything to say today, sorry.

Style, class, bravado.

Found this in my spam filter:

One of the more impressive blogs Ive seen. Thanks so much for keeping the internet classy for a change. Youve got style, class, bravado. I mean it. Please keep it up because without the internet is definitely lacking in intelligence.

Now I’m not one to turn down gratuitous ego stroking, even from a spambot, but what really made me laugh was that this comment talking about how classy I am was on the post titled “Oh look, more angry depressing shit“. That’s me, keeping it classy!

Spam

I just realized I still haven’t written anything today. I’ve been loving the weather, cool but not cold, slightly breezy, and going from billowy clouds and sunshine to light rain all day and just sort of forgot. I’ve also spent some time reading archives of Clan of the Cats, a webcomic I used to read some ten years ago. Funny how different it seems now. Looking through the archives, I see that the comic’s comments have recently been infested by spam.

Not to be confused with SPAM, the surprisingly versatile canned meat from Hormel, spam is one of those irritating things that we sort of work around and put up with. I’ve heard claims that anywhere from a third to almost three-quarters of the internet’s bandwidth is wasted on this crap. It’s a classic example of the tendency of people to find a way to make any good thing suck.

Seriously, if SOPA stood for “Spam Offenders Punished Accordingly”, I’d probably be cheering the stupid thing without even looking twice.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today, some tepid grumbling. Probably because most of my internet time today was spent in a world of witches and werewolves that could cross-over nicely with Buffy  the Vampire Slayer. See you tomorrow!
