Is it a new low or new high?

Some junker set a new record yesterday. He left a comment that tripped thirty seven different filters. That’s impressive. Stupid, but impressive. Such a massive concentration of signatures guarantees that it will trip at least one almost everywhere.

My favorites, though, are the ones that put in things to fool the filters that check for literal text. This is usually done in a way that is, in fact, easy to detect. One guy put long hex strings at the front and back for of his text. The filter for that took all of 20 seconds to write and it’s not the kind of thing that will trip on human generated text. Well, I have to get my amusement where I can.
