Fastidious Spam

Recently the inbox for this blog has been overflowing with spam. Some of them have been carefully worded to generically apply to most any subject matter -- with a link to their own handiwork, of course. Like this one (all links disabled):

I am sure this post has touched all the internet visitors, its really really pleasant piece of writing on building up new weblog. Feel free to visit my homepage; low carb food 
my website - high fat diet 

OK, not too bad -- even if the comment was attached to the post HD Radio's Rate of Decay (maybe HD Radio would do better on a low carb diet?)

But this one really takes the cake -- er, processed meat product. Twice this week I've received a comment using the word "fastidious."

According to Merriam Webster, fastidious means:
a : having high and often capricious standards
b : showing or demanding excessive delicacy or care
c : reflecting a  meticulous, sensitive, or demanding attitude
And here's the latest comment I've received with the word -- this one from a classical CD review (Weinberg: Symphony No. 6 - A Russian composer is given his due ):

Hi Dear, are you really visiting this site daily, if so after that you will absolutely obtain fastidious knowledge. 
Also visit my webpage ... Freaky-Monster Wohnaccessoires 
my site > MiniMonster GeschenkegroƟhandel
 [MiniMonster Wholesale Gifts in English]

Sure,  toots, thanks. So is this knowledge you refer to capricious, delicate, or demanding? My writing can be characterized many ways (such as good, bad or indifferent), but I have yet to hear this term from any of my editors!

I don't think spammers have gotten more creative -- just stranger.

UPDATE: Shortly it went live, this post received its first comment:

If some one needs to be updated with most up-to-date technologies afterward he must be visit this site and be up to date all the time. My webpage: Privat Krankenversicherung Kind

More spam. And not particularly fastidious, either.
