‘Sustain! We imagine you have a great evening.’
Recently someone expressed their wishes for me in this format. Yip those pesky spambots again, the messgaes read as follows.

It is rather awesome to read simple things your site content, this individual. And I will probably give attention to your websites daily and even call at your blogging site to read simple things your own most current articles and reviews, any time you update.
Sustain! We imagine you have a great evening.

I am often puzzled byt eh rule sof the english lanugage and you can tell the spammers have tried to generate comments based on making rules around how a sentance is constructed. this is a bad thing mostly. Occassionally despite the fact it would fail the Turing Test, the use of language throws up an beautiful thing. ‘Sustain! We imagine you have a great evening.’ is one of those beautiful phrases.

the exhortment to ‘sustain’ is perhaps the key thing for me. we often talk about sustainability, but that is in relation to withdrawing ourselves from the situation. Is it sustainable? It is interesting how at odds it is as something to encourage someone to do when society wise we have a career ladder, we are spiritually on a journey. We speak in metaphors which esteem change and movement and we yet the idea of telling someone to sustain seems counter to how we assume life should be lived.

‘Sustain! We imagine you have a great evening.’ I think i will be using his in my email signitures from now on.
