Spambot of the day

Word-coining bot:

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was etlmerexy long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up and say, do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers?

Here’s the first: it would be etlmerexy good if you used words already in existence.

    This may be a good place to post a “heads-up”: The latest Leftist meme in academia is this catch-phrase, “Rampant Individualism.”

    Look for it soon in a panel discussion near you.

    I spotted this one in three different academic books I was editing this spring and summer (I work for one of the most prestigious academic publishers), and recognized it as a Leftmeme immediately.

    Rampant. Individualism. Only the American variety is scorned, of course.

    They’re getting bolder and bolder with their Kulturkampf.

    Your bot reminded me of this:

    “Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh?”

  3. Charles Says:


    Can I have the word origin please?

    Can you use it in a sentence?

    Oh, wait, I’m not on the Scripps Spelling Bee blog?! My mistake.

    For whatever it’s worth, Neo, I did a Google search for “etlmerexy” and even though all the results were this same spam blog comment, neo-neocon was listed first. yea!

    @carl in atlanta: I think you’re right! Extremely would fit :D

  5. LisaM Says:

    Are you sure it wasn’t Art?

  6. Artfldgr Says:


    besides, if you search it, only 5 hits come up…
    weird combination of representative subjects…

    neo’s blog
    Israel forum jblog
    thinking out aloud (blog)
    economic scuttlebutt
    wedding ceremony tips at i pronounce you
    zahung forum (vietnam)

    only one tried to use it in a proper sentence, the others were the spambot

    “I am 5′ 10 and 200 lbs, my feet are etlmerexy flat (no arch) and I have an outward pronation.”

    i have really searched hard to find it, even using soundex, and adding a letter to the front..

    The ‘bot’s i-Thingy prolly has an ‘etimerexy’ APP.

  8. ZZMike Says:

    It’s a mark of how good our brains are at decoding language that most everybody knew what that word really was. (As carl in atlanta points out.)

    Many years ago, I did a search for “thriteen” (by mistake) and came up with thousands of hits. Today all I get is a measly 87,400. And I had to convince Google that I means what I spelled.

    double-plus etlmerexy

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
