Nice Brief

No, this isn't about Hanes. Or Fruit of the Loom. Besides, reviewing what someone chooses to wear, particularly of the undergarment variety isn't what my blog is about.

Besides, that would be of the plural sense. Like scissor vs. scissors.

"Nice Brief" refers to a comment I received on January 31st for my post "Hull Breach Is Imminent". A classic Dilbert cartoon I ran across recently while perusing an old hard drive backup. The comment went thusly:

"Nice brief and this fill someone in on helped me alot in my college assignement. Say thank you you seeking your information."

Now, I don't expect that everyone in the world is a genius at English. People who are, probably don't lower themselves to reading blogs, unless they are looking for examples to show their classes. Besides, geniuses at English probably get paid to show others the subject. That the commenter says they are working on an assignment is at least somewhat conversant in English, albeit broken.


That day, there was a visitor to my blog from "The Russian Federation", but there was no actual "page" viewed. Strange, that. And they'd left a comment. And since I moderate the comments to my blog, and finding that comment all that much more peculiar, decided to Google it.

Glad I did.

For there, on that glowing Acer Netbook screen, were about 30 other blog comments with exactly the same text. No, that's not a coincidence.

What does it mean? Hard to tell. Maybe it's someone doing research to find out how gullible internet denizens are, to just allow any comment to be made on their posts. Whether by the commenter or the Engrish professor proving a point to his or her class will never be known.

Needless to say, I deleted the comment.
