Blogging has its up and downs, I suppose. A minor highlight is reading the weird spam comments a blog occasionally attracts.

WordPress has a built-in spam trap, plus I can edit out the advertising links in any comment which gets submitted, so nothing really gets through unless I allow it — and I don’t usually allow it unless I can mess with the spammer.

I got this beauty the other day as a response to the “Time Traveler” post. I can’t decide which would be funnier: the spammer having no idea what he was really saying or if he knew exactly what he was saying. Either way, I decided to have some fun:

Generika Potenzmittle? What the…? “Generic potmetal”? That’s aluminum, isn’t it?

Have fun! — Steve
