I could not make this up.

Occasionally I receive a comment from one of those automated comment spammer programs which makes a Google-like attempt to capture the essence of a particular post based on one or two words in it and then form a comment that offers a product or service related to my post (or what the software thinks is related to my post). Today I received a gut-busting laugh-out-loud comment from such spam software on a 2006 entry in which I complain about how the strange-looking bed bug bites on my arm are often mistaken for some sort of skin infection or herpes.

Got Herpes? Do not despair. You are not alone. 1 in 5 men and 1 in 4 women are living with herpes. Don't Let Genital Herpes Run or Ruin Your Life. Dating and relationship help for people with genital herpes now http://www.****************
Only a computer could do something this stupid.

I'll try to post again this weekend.

It's funny but being one of the small percentage of bed buggers does make you paranoid about other thing such as herpes. The scare tactics they use like, "most people spread herpes when no symptoms are present". So if you have ever had sex you are thinking, geesh..what if?
paranoid? Paranoid is thinking that they have gotten into my boyfriend's car and even if I ever get rid of them in my place that I'll get reinfected when I go in his car. I want to move in 3 months. Can I get rid of them before then?
P.S. I am not in NY I am in NS
