Comment Spamming

I’m being comment spammed to high-heaven. When I first started writing online, the spamming was fairly crude and each message well – they were fairly direct. Now after a whole host of spam fighting techniques – captchas, bayesian filters, ip blocking etc. – the messages are getting ‘classier’.

Here’s a selection.

On belonging:

All the qualities of a man acquire dignity when he knows that the service of the collectivity that owns him needs them. If proud of the collectivity, his own pride rises in proportion. No collectivity is like an army for nourishing such pride….

On time:

Every instant of time is a pinprick of eternity. All things are petty, easily changed, vanishing away.

On…politics?

All democrats are insane, but not one of them knows it; none but the republicans and mugwumps know it. All the republicans are insane, but only the democrats and mugwumps can perceive it. The rule is perfect: in all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane.

Too bad – all gone now.
