Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks
Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

So I was reading the Hullabaloo article on the main page and came across one of those generic "my aunt's sister's dog's hairdresser makes a million dollars an hour on the internet" comments... in black. Even though it was pending. The spammers are LEARNING!

Illustration for article titled Theyre learning!

I am honestly flabbergasted. I'm impressed at this point. Do those spam messages make enough revenue that someone figured out that they'd be gray in the comments and made a concerted effort to turn their text black? It's probably an HTML trick, but still!

I think the spam bots are becoming sentient, you guys.
