Aug 21st 2012 – Interior decoration is a matter of pleasure or stress, depending on how you look at it. This technology is brand new and has only been around for the past 6 months. The flight is scheduled according to the needs of the passenger at his or her own pace complete with any stops or side-trips that may be requested. How can this be for real? Something is going wrong. It is 2012, and this is the United States of America

Does that make any sense? Not really. I posted it because I found it particularly amusing. This was, indeed, the 167th spam comment I’ve received. (In the URL field was the address for some site selling cheap handbags.) Something is going wrong, at least for this commenter. It is 2012, this is the United States of America, and I moderate my comments, bozo!
