Turing test

I had a recent comment on my spam comments post from a nice chap.

Bizarrely, his comment was much along the same lines as you often get from the automated spammers – “I like your blog”.

I nearly deleted it.

I investigated by clicking on his name and it didn’t seem to link through to a blog. I was suspicious!

In the end I didn’t delete it and I followed up with a comment of my own. It turns out he is a real life person. Hello!

I wonder what it was about it that made me tell the difference?

I guess computers aren’t any closer to passing the Turing Test. (Assuming of course we have our most highly powered computers on the case sending spam comments on WordPress.)
