  • The Muppets Meet Murderbot

    I’ve been getting a lot of blocked spam comments, mostly from Russian IP addresses. I clear them out once a week or so, and tweak my IP address filters. You’ll probably never see them, as I block comments that aren’t from a previous poster or a verified OpenID. However, in clearing them out today I noticed a block of text that I felt inspired to reformat into a more poetic form. The credit goes to random spammer username Gefafuw (which my brain wants to read as “guffaw”, ironically enough). It appears this particular WordPress comment bot is using a very simple bigram language model.

    Another Drunken Energy

    Several days their meaning
    muffled voice turned,
    been unable
    when meat is enough.

    Sanity spoken aloud,
    Astur attacked,
    multiheaded beast.

    Fruit bonus machine!
    Stilled shock and direst need
    until today raise their difficulty.

    Have the luxury noticed
    just that caribbean stud
    videos another drunken energy.

    Of course it makes no sense! That’s the point! :oP The raw text, with spam links removed:

    I found it an amusing distraction, at any rate :o). Have you received any particularly hilarious spam that was attempting to beat your spam filters?
