Spam comments have suddenly got a lot more interesting

What’s going on? Is a new creative intelligence at work in the spam factories?

This is how they used to be (up until last Friday):

Nice weblog over here! I’ll just wanna thank you for that. If you like to visit my website check out our website to please! thanks for visiting!

This week I’m getting messages of a much higher quality. Such as:

Will you be free tomorrow evening? That’s neat.Don’t worry.The girl in red is his girlfriend.What a nice day it is!He goes home early everyday for fear that his wife would be angry.He goes home early everyday for fear that his wife would be angry.What’s your favorite steps? Stop making such a noise.They played a shameful part in the whole affair.

and this one starts with a predictable sales pitch (do they ever work?) and then suddenly dives into a different literary landscape. Interesting use of repetition. What is this….Dada spam?

Let me tell you some details about clearance.You are a chicken.I will arrange everything.Could you tell me your secret for a long, happy life? Japan is to the east of China.I’m doing some washing and John is cooking dinner.I’m doing some washing and John is cooking dinner.The train arrived on time.Neither of the men spoke.They misplaced this book under other categories.
