They don’t care about him

It was just a matter of time, I suppose. This came in as a comment about 2:00 am:

I will surely miss Michael Jackson, he is really worthy of the name King of Pop and he is certainly one of the greatest musicians of all time…

Nothing wrong with that, I thought, until I pulled open the moderation queue and saw that the ostensible poster was named, um, “Body Detox Diets,” with a URL to match.

So now we’re getting Michael Jackson spam. You don’t want to know the way this makes me feel.

    We have truly lost a star. Now Michael Jackson shines for all eternity looking down on us.

    I’ve also heard that there are e-mails making the rounds claiming to contain – as an attachment – either deathbed pictures or “his last video EVER!”

    Of course, the attachment is some kind of virus/malware/whatever.

    If Dante were writing today? He’d have to tack a few extra circles onto Hell for these guys.

    Michael Jackson spam actually makes a certain amount of sense. Both he and Spam® contain similar proportions of non-artificial ingredients.

    …and call them “Vista.”

    FYI, this particular guy haunts Twitter under the name “BestBodyDetox.” Highly blockable.

    Calling him a “musician” should have been the first clue. ;-)
