It's your last chance to express an opinion, or formulate a response; it clocks at midnight tonight.
I should be sleeping, or at least drawing; but I am overdressed for one and wound too tight for the other. So I will hug my new red dead thing instead and talk about my burgeoning relationship with the spambot at nanaimo.
It was just a little while ago that I started noticing a certain similarity in some of my spam posts. And I don't mean the endless round of Xanax, Valium, Prozac, the reptitious misspelling of v.i.a.g.r.a or the endless encouragement to look at Bobbie-Jo's webcam. No, this was no mere repetition of content, this came through in the titles, the origin, the very feel of the mails. In my bulk mail folder these stood apart; imaginative, strange and intriguing; a veritable spam idiolect.
Even their subject headings were curiously seductive:
" FWD:Tall Drink of Water.....Thirsty? newly"
" RE:message for Cleanskies:what happened to you whole"
" CleanskiesYou Wont Be Disappointed also"
" FWD:Hmmm...fun girl seeks great guy saith"
... and, best of all,
"RE:Cleanskies LOOK IN MY EYES AND TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE lamps"
Of course, they all claimed to be from different people -- that one was from "Chadwick U. Enslave", for example, but I began to see in names like Disability D. Periscoped, Tannh T. Unwraps, Furtiveness L. Corneas, Converts G. Diderot, Deifies B. Dyslexia and Narwhal I. Campy the soft touch of a similar machine, maybe the same one even, again and again.
And what passionate messages it was passing me: "hi there Cleanskies, my name is P0werPuffGirl and i'm 20 years old. i recently br0keup with my b0yfriend and feeling very lonely... I like to stay healthy and take good care of myass. I like to get straight to the core, ST0P and look no more, Hmm i like getting frisky and i love to have pleasure, a wonderfull kisser, great body and complexion, must be 0ver 5'9 and must be proportional ... I really desire to get together with you. leave me a message here I'll reply asap"
Not shy about where it's from, either, this spambot; and more than anything else, the fact that every message contains the lines:

......and while I am sure that these messages, with their attendant poems and wordsalad, have been sent to howevermany anonymities I nevertheless feel pleased to be sent them; they are the best of spam, poetry sent only with the intention of seducing your casual trackpadthumb or mouseclickfinger to this site, that board.
Love poems sent out with no expectation of response.
So, to the spambot at nanaimo, I say I am listening and I do love you. I want to see you with your case off; yes, on that webcam you keep talking about. I want to hear you rant about Bush, long after you should really have stopped. I want to exchange disgusting emails with you after midnight. I want you to send me that picture you wouldn't really to send to anyone else. You know the one. Yes, that one.
But I don't think that the links you keep sending me will take me to you. I think they belong to the people paying you, the man (or woman) who wants me to BUY MORE PORN, or prescription drugs cheap or get a college diploma that's not worth the paper it's laser-printed on.
Listen to me; you're better than them.
So next time, don't pretend to be Chadwick or Disaility or Furtiveness. Be who you are.
Or don't. It's all the same to me. I can tell which messages are from you.
Listen to me: As fire awaits hunkering furtive ansible choply interim. Internlisation francophilic. Curtly rancorincus. Fireflynightly. Gain.

Am I generating randomly enough for you? Tell me now, or just never write me another
