Some words of wisdom from a spam comment trapped lovingly by Akismet:
Thank you for the auspicious writeup. It in fact was a amusement account it.
Look advanced to far added agreeable from you! However, how can we communicate?
Indeed. How can we communicate? If only we could add our agreeable, perhaps then our writeups would at last be truly auspicious.
I can but dream that one day we can come together, humans and spam, to make a better tomorrow.
But that day is not today, or indeed tonight, ‘cos I’m not feeling well.
So I’ll leave you with that thought – and with a link to the second part of my massive conversation about books and writing with Hugh Grimwade – and then go back to bed.
