Fainting with damn praise

A spammer left this semi-hilarious bit of nonsense in the Akismet trap:

What a wonderful blog. I invest hours on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to to begin with give kudos to whoever created your web site and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only several posses and to be truthful you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely very rare with the big quantity of blogs on the internet.

The real gem here, of course, is “…writing what i can only describe as an post.” Because, you know, that’s what it was.

I have to assume that this was translated from Spammer to English by someone who speaks only Shyriiwook.

    Yeah, I’ve been getting piles of those. PILES. It’s kind of like stepping in gum while wearing new shoes.

    “…writing what i can only describe as an post.”

    Of all the spam comments I have ever read, that was one.
