It appears someone has written up a nifty little AI program that scours a web site and pulls together key statements and phrases that are then assembled into a clever little piece of spam. If there is no human intervention involved here, I would be very impressed. Check it out...


happened to visit your website and came to know that The Secret Lair opened its doors in 1998, providing public tours of Tony Walsh's assortment of Web-based projects. This site expanded in 1999, offering a semi-daily Web journal known as the Secret Lair "Bites." Today, the Secret Lair remains a leaping off point for Tony's stable of content-rich Web projects, and garners between 300,000 and 600,000 hits monthly. The layout of the site has a very magical touch to it. I am extremely impressed with the effort you have taken to build this page. It is very informative and extremely well designed and it was great experience browsing through your site. In short a fantastic and informative site to visit. I think the potential of the Internet is best realized when information is shared. Please keep up the good work and I will definitely come back again to check out the new improvements that you would be bringing about to the site.

The spam goes on from there with details on how to buy the company's services. Crazy stuff.
