Well, I just deleted some spam that had nothing to do with the post that that comment was made to. It had a link to a website that looked like it was written in Russian (since I don't speak Russian, all I know for sure is it wasn't English).

Two comments in this journal that had nothing to do with my posts in the last few days. One more off topic post in this week, and I'll be setting this journal to pre-screening comments.

update: I just had Babel Fish translate that Russian website for me. It was a very poor English translation compared to what I'm used to seeing from Babel Fish for other languages. It was good enough that I got the gist that it was some kind of Russian sales pitch selling something that didn't translate into English though. Definitely spam.

I hope this doesn't become a trend, now that LJ is owned by the Roo-shuns.

I doubt it will, but I did bookmark your backup journal in case anything happens to this place. :)

I use Babelfish quite often since Kurt's native language is Dutch. Their word translations are so literal, the phrases that they come up with are hilarious sometimes!

Perhaps you should report anymore spam you get to the Eljay folks?

When Babel translated that Russian site, well, there were two or three words in every sentence that didn't get translated. Much worse than the other languages I've used it to help me with over the years.

As for reporting spam, I do check that option when deleting inappropriate comments 90% of the time.

Thanks for popping your head up and letting me know you're here. :)

Just as an fyi, right now things are a bit crazy for me. My mom has heating troubles at her house that I need to deal with, and my gf is coming into town to spend New Years with me too. So I'm prob. not going to be doing much with this journal until after new years with those two keeping me busy.
