Ever wonder what my most popular piece of writing was? Here it is. It’s a short-short anecdote about how Gini and I thought the third episode of Sherlock was extremely slow-paced, until we realized that a background process was playing the video at about 75% speed.
Spambots fucking love this piece. I get three, four comments a day on it, mostly about prostitutes: “prostitutki moskva on layn.” I clear them out overnight and come back to the applause of more spambots, happily commenting away.
I’ve considered locking this entry, but I’m actually curious to see how far it’ll go. For the past three months, it’s like clockwork: I wake up, and the spambots have commented on my Sherlock post. I’m not sure why they’ve settled on this piece, when there are so many others to choose from, but there you have it: spambots love Steven Moffat.
It’s good to know that the robots love me. Maybe when the Singularity hits and the ad-bots rule us all, I can be their poet laureate. Or a comedian. Or whatever floats their boat about this entry, I don’t know.
