First Spam!

I just got my first comment spam tonight! And what a spam it was. It was on a post from two months ago and of course had nothing to do with the post. I saved it off in a text file before I deleted it. If anyone is interested in reading it, let me know and I will email it to you.

Note that while I allow anonymous comments, I do require 'word verification' (captcha) which makes it unlikely a bot entered this comment.

Some features of the comment:

It does not have any URLs in its content which would seem to make it useless for SEO.
It does have three email addresses at one point.
It is somewhat stream of consciousness, but not entirely. It has something of a structure.
It has a lot to say about the end of the world.

It is 405,854 bytes or 62019 words long.

I saw it pop up across multiple blogs yesterday. Very strange stuff. I think Haley covered it a few months ago and tried to do some research:

Yep. From Haley's excerpts it certainly looks like the same kook. Wow.
