I don't know what that means!

I have gotten an anon spam comment on one of my old lj entries, in toto and I quote:
Subject: Thank You for site

Thank you for your site. I have found here much useful information. Good
site ! ;)
The thing is, I can't figure out what the purpose of it is. It has no informational content at all. No links. I even checked the source code, to see if there was any embedded evil, and there isn't: it's just the text.

WHY??? I would've assumed if they were doing it for the heck of it, they would have left a less polite message. Is it a test spam, to see if they can get through the filters, or if I'm enough of a sucker to leave it up? Is there some thing where if they send a certain number of non-spam comments, lj won't block them? It makes no sense!

Meanwhile I'm trying to download a ringtone now that I've remembered my cellphone's PIN, and the provider's website doesn't work in Opera at all, only sorta in Firefox, and not at all (but in a different way) in IE. I hate when websites have a gateway that's supposed to make sure it works with your browser, but is SO STUPID that it just makes the website nonfuctional on browsers it *would* work with. And in order to listen to the streaming audio samples it looks like I'm going to have to freakin' *update my OS*.

Right, that's another six months of default ringtone then. Bye-bye, polyphonic MacGuyver theme.
