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.

  • 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.

  • @Jon B: Isn't this the hell you were talking about a few hours ago? :) So where can I ask developers' questions?

    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? :)

    Jeff, at least change that to a country song. I'm depressed.

  • Mehrdad, there is something DEEPLY wrong with your IE configuration. Commented Jan 1, 2010 at 2:18
  • Jeff, I believe you're right. Nothing else makes sense. Will investigate.

  • Country song? Ok, try this: "Everything goes wrong / Country and western haikus / Help me share the pain."

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