Interesting spam

No, really. As a comment to an earlier post, I received this:

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

This is a worthwhile sentiment, and inspiring at this time in my life. But it came from a spammer (the supposed sender is a rugby player; I just went to the site again to check specifics and it was flagged as ‘Warning Unsafe content’ and had been taken down).

Weirdness of the day.

Spamming the Blog: Update

I found this comment — labeled spam by the glorious Akismet — absolutely hilarious:

I found your topic “Spamming the Blog – cybercoven.org” when i was searching for curtain tracks and it is really intresting for me. If its OK for you i would like to translate your topic and post it on my german blog about curtain tracks. I link back to your topic of course!

They’ve really gotten tricky.  .  . or so they think!
