Now, I may be wrong, and please excuse me if I am, but...

Isn't that how the Cold War started? Just askin'!

Well put like that...

Do what you want mate. That last post wasn't so much a "don't do it" as a "well if you are going to do it then expect this." It was just a statement of fact about how the world works.

Actually, personally I would rather that you didn't, but for entirely different reasons. I happen to think that there's enough shit flying around as it is, without adding any more to it. But I don't see that you should live your life round my personal desires (although with the Island, you are in fact doing a remarkably good job of just that).

Joshua: Greetings, Professor Falken.

Stephen Falken: Hello, Joshua.

Joshua: A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

Someone edit for canon, I'm not awake enough to write anything funny.

I hear Ray Ban 310's are really popular right now.

Sheesh.... It's like they've lifted their kilts and are just taunting us now!

It's a human spammer now, rather than a horde of spambots.

This is progress. Humans have the ability to decide, hell, they're just wasting their time on this place. Might as well move along to all those other less frequently monitored sites, where their posts will actually hang around long enough to be seen by a search engine webcrawler.

No use fuming at this individual, who's only trying to make a living in a sweatshop somewhere in China and likely doesn't have enough English to read this. The company he/she works for will have procedures: if a site does this, try that. If they respond to that, try this other thing. Eventually there'll be an exit point -- because there are millions of easier targets out there.

Oh! That is good news!

But, uh, how can you tell when a spammer is human vs. bot? Still seemed like the typical word salad ripped from one site with keywords replaced as links (some not even finished!).

The word salad isn't being typed in. It's supplied by the employer, is selected randomly, and is either copy/pasted or, more likely, inserted using a script. But there's a human being doing the account creation and manually triggering that 'insert spam' script.

Horatio: Greetings, Doktor Improbable.

Joseph Hawton: Hello, Eleanor.

Horatio: A strange game. The only winning move is to ask The Watcher to lower your rank. How about a nice game of tennis?

Joseph Hawton: *Maniacal giggling*

Edited for canon, as requested.Is "edited for canon" gonna be a thing? I hope so. Hopefully, no-one will read this and figure out my goal of meme-ship for it.
