Not so firm as all that

Spam blog, semantic dementia, or something else entirely?

You make the call.

I'm not sure I understand what it is, exactly. It does have a spam flavor to it. One wonders if it is computer generated. If so, I vote spam. If not, I vote semantic dementia.

It's a spam blog, but in a formative stage, like a pupa.The idea at this stage is to earn a good spot in search engine results for the word "firmer." After it has attained this, the content will be replaced with links to the site it is really trying to promote.

sean's assesment seems correct, and the text could easily have been generated by a chomskybot/chatterbot type of program.

I looked at it and came here with no freaking clue except maybe it was some kid so juiced that this was the best he/she could produce. But Sean's explanation seems reasonable. My question then is, "Why?"

But how does it feel to know you've made it all the way to being a Spam Link?
Very cool.
I hope to see you in my inbox someday, with the subject of "Bigger And Better!"
