The spam robots have found my weakness. Every day, they post gibberish comments to my blog posts (spam robots are my most loyal readers) that are strings of random words, or sometimes they look like phrases and sentences pulled from internet search results. And then, yesterday, I got six or seven comments to different posts, and they were all about brewing beer. Some of them even made sense. And instead of having names and e-mail addresses like zxwxsqmxz@gmail.com, they had links to real Facebook profiles, most of them young children. And they were commenting on posts that had nothing to do with beer. So the spam robots are getting a little smarter, but they’re approaching that uncanny valley of appearing smart enough to seem stupid.

    These are not spambots; these are the people of your home planet. They are trying to call you home.
