chapping at chaff
so i suppose on some level i should feel good about the fact that every couple of days some spambot sprays their comment diarrhea on some random posts from 6 months ago. that they've deigned t.s.o.a. worthy of infestation must mean that they think people will see it right? still there's something about it that is disturbing beyond the level that involves me having to delete the comments and ban the IP addresses from posting comments in the future. i don't know how they pick which postings to comment on but i'm guess that there must be some sort of trigger words that it uses. but he strangest thing is the way the comments are written, either complimentary as in "that was interesting" or weirdly philosophical like "man constantly strives for a perfection he doesn't understand with tools inherently flawed." occasionally i catch myself trying to figure out the meaning before realizing that it's all just a trick to lead me to cheap prescription drugs, penis enlargement and pyramid scheme websites. i rarely notice these things on other blogs though. is there some sort of proscriptive blocking mechanism that i'm not aware of?
but do you like what i've done here? now when the bots append nonsensical comments to this post about nonsensical comments in a couple months it will create this seriously meta entry guaranteed to blow some minds. dig.
