Spambot with a sense of irony

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Elsewhere, I received the following comment spam:

Every time I visit this website I loose [sic] my assurance that everything written here is real. But even if it’s not true, I keep on visiting it because it’s interesting. There are many posts which you can’t find anywhere else.

I laughed out loud. How’s that for ironic?

I was tempted to respond:

Every time you visit this website I have complete assurance that everything written by you is not real. But even if it’s true, SpamKarma will keep moderating you because you look like spam. There is spam like yours that can found everywhere else.

But what’s the point of debating my existential uncertainty with an automated email script?
