Dahmer and the real estate spiders

Over on the My Friend Dahmer blog, I posted a few months ago that Jeff's boyhood home, the one that was a major setting in MFD, was once again on the market.

Since then I have gotten regular "comments", at least one a week, like the following, from someone named SizzlingLEO:

Really nice but One way you can view a lot of the homes that are for sale in your desired area is to utilize a listing agency. They maintain information on many of the hot properties that are on the market. If you are looking to sell some property, you may want to hire them to include your home in their listings. Click Here to get free consultancy now!!!

That's right. Some real estate entity's online spiders flagged a post about a serial killer's home, where a young man was murdered and horribly butchered, as a worthy place to drop a commercial message! Hilarious. And kind of comforting really. Instrusive technology that is completely ineffective. Let's hope those NSA spiders are, too!
