Let The Great Experiment Begin!

You've probably heard about the video game Left Behind: Eternal Forces and what a pock mark it is on the face of American Christianity. If not, that's okay. For what it's worth, here's my favorite analysis of the game from Brant at Kamp Krusty.

Anyway, that's not the point. The point is from a recent article from Talk 2 Action which features the observation that LE:ET actually has its own spambots. Yeah, if a blog mentions this stupid game, one of these spambots will come along and say something like:

Hey, with so many people having an opinion about this game, how many have actually played it? And what credibility do they have? Focus on the Family has publications which can set the record straight for [link deleted].

I've actually seen this exact message turn up on two blogs, one being Brant's. That's why I have begun this little experiment.

I'm going to try to get spammed by the Left Behind: Eternal Forces spambot.

I imagine that it won't take terribly long, unless my word verification does what it's supposed to do. Both the blogs I've seen these messages on are Typepad rather than Blogger. Well, it's worth a shot.

So whether or not you've played Left Behind: Eternal Forces, just know that somewhere out there is a Left Behind: Eternal Forces spammer, ready to plug Left Behind: Eternal Forces if you mention Left Behind: Eternal Forces on your blog, if you blog about Left Behind: Eternal Forces, or if Left Behind: Eternal Forces is mentioned on your blog. Left Behind: Eternal Forces.

Okay, go!
