Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Possible Duplicates:
Has Stack Overflow been haiku-hacked?
Overactive spam-ku

I've just submitted an answer to this question and a stupid message appeared (looks like plain text response from server). I had to go rewrite the answer which caused me to get shot by FGITW. I've submitted the answer using IE8 (I normally use Chrome/Safari. IE just happened to be open. It's the second time I'm seeing this today in IE).

It is spam haiku. It thinks you are a spammer. Shame on you, Mehrdad. – user27414 Dec 31 '09 at 22:06
I get it on every post in IE. I got it for this meta post too. In fact, I couldn't submit a comment. This is from Chrome. – xmm0 Dec 31 '09 at 22:07
@Jon B: Isn't this the hell you were talking about a few hours ago? :)… – xmm0 Dec 31 '09 at 22:12
@Mehrdad: Do not taunt stackoverflow. – user27414 Dec 31 '09 at 22:17
I still can't comment in IE. The spam heuristics are really bad. Wait a minute... didn't Google sponsor SO. Is this a coincidence? :) – xmm0 Dec 31 '09 at 22:19
Jeff, at least change that to a country song. I'm depressed. – xmm0 Dec 31 '09 at 22:20
Mehrdad, there is something DEEPLY wrong with your IE configuration. – Jeff Atwood Jan 1 '10 at 2:18
Jeff, I believe you're right. Nothing else makes sense. Will investigate. – xmm0 Jan 1 '10 at 2:48
Country song? Ok, try this: "Everything goes wrong / Country and western haikus / Help me share the pain." – mmyers Jan 4 '10 at 20:42

Haikus are the worst.
I made this in ten seconds.
It is terrible.
