Fun with spam!

Every day when I log into this site, I check my spam queue. Akismet’s spam filter does a pretty good at catching spam, and I’ve had only one false positive through my entire use of it. Most of the time I see real spam that deserves to be trashed. Today was the same. Lately the spambots are having a bit too much fun with the character map. This gem came with the character map funtimes today, and it deserves to be shared, then trashed.

The author of has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: Donald Duck was always naked but always wore a towel when getting out the shower Thanks for the info.

In case you’re curious, the comment was in response to what my alma mater assumes about technical knowledge. Clearly the point of my entry is like the Donald Duck, but why does he wear a towel when he exits the shower? And in fact, he’s not always naked. He wears a shirt, remember? Was this an insult of some kind, or was the spambot referring to being bottom-half naked? You can certainly argue about Donald Duck being naked.

I’m probably taking a spambot message way too seriously, so let’s take it at face value. My point is in some ways a universal truth. I like this. Clearly I should start a movement.
