So a friend of mine, Shannon, did this and talked me into it. I’m not really sure how applicable it is to my only concrete work in progress, since Færie Patrol is so very much a “I’ll jot down a few words if I suddenly get a bug” status right now.
Still, it’s cute, it can’t hurt, so what the hell, right?
Below is a screenshot of a bit of comment spam that WP caught for me this morning.
This is just insulting! Cooking video?! Are they even trying?! I mean Regarding Fanfic, I’m fairly certain, doesn’t contain anything that any properly written algorithm should decide is about cooking.
I mean, come on people! If you’re going to run a scam, you’ve got to try harder! Just a little more effort, just a little more, and that might have just about looked like a legitimate comment … to someone who wasn’t paying attention, maybe, but still. But, no, of course not. They have to go talking about cooking. I don’t talk about cooking, so red flag number one. Oh look, it’s on my fanfic policy page … duh.
I hope that computers reach the point they’re at in Jeph Jacques‘ Questionable Content comic soon, simply because I’d love to think that no self-respecting sentient machine would allow itself to send such insultingly undisguised nonsense.
