a bush by any other name

LucasArts has a new blog that we've been using to talk about the up-coming release of our new game, "Lucidity."

So far, the blog has been doing well and we've been getting a nice dialogue going with LucasArts fans and developers. However, as with every blog, a little spam slips into the midst. This weekend, we got some spam that was caught by the spam filter, but the text of it just struck me as so goofy that I wanted to share it. Spammers, does this really prove to be a successful way of driving traffic to your spam site?

"I stand here today humbled by the task before Dofus kamas, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our cheap Dofus kamas. I thank President Dofus for his service to buy Dofus kamas, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition."

Uh...

Turns out the "kamas" are the currency in a free, Flash-based MMO named Dofus. I have to say, I'm very grateful to them for their generosity throughout this transition, as well. Who knows what would have happened to us if President Dofus would have turned his back on us.

Hi, this is in response to your old entry about Claire Clay. I knew her briefly a long time ago and just found out about her death. If you'd be so kind to email me so I could ask you a question or two, I'd really appreciate it.

Even if I don't hear from you, thanks for that blog post.

Hi, Cal -

I'd be happy to email you, but your Blogger profile doesn't seem to contain any info. How can I get in touch with you?

Thanks a lot
