Eye - VK, Voight-Kampf test

Turing Test FAIL

Now, I have no doubt that this is spam:

Same entry.

Addendum, 23:25: I suspect that post-dating an entry several years into the future to keep it at the top of one's LJ makes it "sticky" in more ways than one. Since a lot of spambots post their phishy little comments on the journal's latest entry, that post-dated entry is going to pick up most of them.

Note that this particular comment is generic enough and innocuous enough to create the impression of legitimacy on many normal blog entries. Ironically, it's the same elements of my VK-CAPTCHA post that made it so hard to determine whether the word-salad response was a robot or a hipster that made this more innocuous one so obviously machine-generated.
