‘Spametry’: Spam Poetry

Every day the Oracle staff receives comments, many of which are insightful, supportive, and thoughtful.  However, occasionally a bit of spam slips in there.  Spam comments make no sense and  leave the writers of the Oracle utterly befuddled and confused, but nonetheless amused.

Some spam comments are too good to overlook.  Such comments fall somewhere  between free verse poetry and a dramatic reading of Shakespeare — if Shakespeare spoke in gibberish.  Below is an example that I have taken the liberty of rearranging into free verse form.

I would like to thank the “author” of the comment, the SpamBot with the screen name of “ShoorMurb,” for entertaining the whole Oracle staff and readers.  We hope that you will laugh as much as we did.

As part of Archer’s active and engaged community, the Editorial Board welcomes reader comments and debate and encourages community members to take ownership of their opinions by using their names when commenting. However, in order to ensure a diverse range of opinions, the editorial board does allow anonymous comments on articles as long as the perspective cannot be obtained elsewhere, and they are respectful and relevant. We do require a valid, verified email address, which will not be displayed, but will be used to confirm your comments. Because we are a 6-12 school, the Editorial Board reserves the right to omit profanity and content that we deem inappropriate for our audience. We do not publish comments that serve primarily as an advertisement or to promote a specific product. Comments are moderated and may be edited in accordance with the Oracle’s profanity policy, but the Editorial Board will not change the intent or message of comments. They will appear once approved.
