Extremely Peculiar Spam? Or A New Friend?

The thing about comment spam now is that some of it's so weird and pointless that you can't tell whether it is spam. For instance, a new comment just was posted on an old entry here called "Matt Taibbi: Is He Secretly Jesus?" The name given by the person (bot?) commenting is "FalaffelKerfuffelX" with the address The comment itself is:

You are diseased... and if not, go to a 'bug-chasing' party and get caught. Remember, be 'positive' about HIV!!!!

This is, of course, an extremely cogent point. So I'd hate to believe it wasn't directed to me personally. What do you think?

You are a bug! Go to a falafel party and get positive! Remember, be Michael Moore!

Your comment spammer is an unhappy wingnut, Jon. Wingnuts think the homosexual agenda includes wild anal sex parties where everyone tries to get HIV. These are called "bug chasing" parties.

Homophobic latent cases make good movement types.
