A comment was posted yesterday by x l i b r i s (no googling for you bastards) that was commerical spam. It was annihilated, as any future comments of that nature will be.

Actually it was not commercial spam, it was a tip to a possible solution for Erik Naggum's book publishing problem. The _quote_ from the page was the gist to elucidate as much.
I'm sorry. It was a piece of pure promotional text with nothing that indicated a human being did anything more than keyword search. I showed it to a few other people who thought it was probably spam, too, and the phenomenon of spam in weblog comments is not unknown.
