Don't know, some posts make more sense that average Chien speak.
There is a pattern to it… I think it's trying to tell us something.

This seems to be some sort of a diluted interference with service attack -- it plays hell, slowly. with the forum…

I'm, waiting for the latest robot AI delivering spam to us at the front door.
Just imatgine this : A huge, dangerous, *really* dangerous military warbot hacked - to bring to each one of us spam to the house door …


Edit : Again, the text snippets used by the spam bots are about american sports teams.

Well, that's weird. Nobody cares about those.
At least I don't. For me, sports is the least interesting topic in the world, followed closely by Viagra.

…well, there just aren't enough robots, glitter, sequins, winged succubi, fluffy animals, big bad wolves, unicorns and SWAT units in most sports I'm afraid (or in those Viagra ads). And no housing to speak of.

Even more reason fo me to squash these spambot things whenever I see them.
