I find the spam comment quite interesting. For one, it doesn't make any sense, unless you're schizophrenic. The idea of a schizophrenic spammer is actually rather amusing -- imagine Gollum typing on a keyboard (The Fat one knows !).

But discounting the possibility of a mad spammer, we must come to the conclusion that the comment was constructed in some logical manner for some purpose. It appears that the entire post was formed from many high-impact words. I suspect that the intent was for search engines to pick up these words as often as possible --- its something like casting a wide net. Or putting down every single temp job you've done on your resume.

I think I should make a spam post soon in the same fashion. It should prove to be quite fun writing nonsense which actually makes no sense once in a while.
