I promise not to make a habit of bothering my readers with this issue. But I just received -- in rapid succession -- two more "non-sequitur" comments. (If you scroll down a few posts, you'll see a fairly lengthy discussion of this strange phenomenon.) Both of these new examples were directed toward old stories.
The first read:

The second read:

In our previous discussion, readers suggested that these comments use hidden HTML code to sneak malware onto a website. But I could see no code -- just text.
For some reason, I'm not able to track the responsible parties via my stat service.
Why would anyone send unfathomable messages of this sort? I know that I'm not the only blogger who receives these mystery comments.
Both of the above comments contain the nonsense phrase "servimundos melifermuly." Google reveals that this phrase has appeared on many other sites. Some other blog owners do not moderate comments, which means that the non-sequitur offerings are automatically published on those sites.
If someone has invented a clever new way of sneaking virii and trojans into innocent web sites, then we may be facing a serious problem.
