The Poetry Of Spam?

We’ve been getting a bunch of comment spam this last week or two. Fortunately, the anti-spam tools in place on the blog having been doing their job, and none of it has managed to get though to sully your much appreciated comments.

As I’ve been glancing through the spam that has not been automatically deleted (it gets held in a comment spam queue initially), I noticed two things.

Firstly, 95% of the junk has a .ru domain based email address or url attached to it. .ru is the top-level domain for Russia. Methinks they should stick to sucking on the backyard potato vodka rather than wasting their time on spam – they are pretty useless at spamming.

Secondly, I started to notice a certain level of poetic nuance in some of the spam. It’s all auto-generated, but it does often come across as almost stream-of-consciousness stuff, ala James Joyces’ Molly Bloom and others.

Here is my attempt at putting lines drawn from the spam to some use:
