It’s All Russian to Me

[EDIT - I'VE GONE AHEAD AND DELETED THE COMMENT REFERRED TO BELOW]

It’s happened to others; now it’s happened to me. I’ve received a posting whose source appears to be Russian, though the posting is in English, sort of. If you’d like to see it for yourself, I’m going to leave it up for a little while. It’s the fourth comment posted onto my entry of 10/25 titled “Unconstitutional.” The comment is titled “What are your XYZ !” It almost makes some kind of sense… but not quite. Since it is apparently tied to our upcoming presidential election, they probably found my post by doing a keyword search for terms such as “Obama” and “McCain.”

One word of caution – I strongly suggest that you not click on any of the links given there. The only one I clicked on was the link to their LJ, which was all in Cyrillic characters. I wanted to leave it up for others to see simply because it is so gloriously nonsensical. I suspect it was translated by a brute-force online translating program, but it may simply have been done by someone whose English is not yet ready for public exhibition.
