Spam in My Dreams

I had a weird dream last night in which I was very distressed because I had deleted a comment, written in Cyrillic letters, from my spam filter; the reason for the distress was that the comment was actually a secret code carrying information of life-and-death importance.

    Do you recall any other details?

    No, that's pretty much all I remember -- Cyrillic spam, deleted, distressed because it was an important secret code. I don't remember exactly how I found out about it or what it had to do with.

    Actually, I think the secret code was by means of letters of the Latin alphabet strewn apparently at random throughout; but the rest of it is pretty hazy.

    I'll take a guess: Господи помилуй, господи спаси! :-D

    I had to look up the translation, of course, but you're right that something like that would give the best coherence to the story.

No anonymity (but consistent pseudonyms allowed). Abusive comments, especially directed toward other commenters, will be deleted; abusive commenters will be hunted down and shot. By posting a comment you agree to these terms and conditions.
