paging leonid brezhnev.

I’ve been catching a ton of Russian spam in my blog’s Akismet filter lately.  The sheer volume of it is so annoying right now that it makes me a little nostalgic for the Cold War, when the Soviets had nothing to export but crummy shoes and those little hand-painted Babushka dolls…

    well, not counting the seeds of ideology, ideals, motives and tactics that might have lay dormant for a decade or three but are right now in full bloom with roots deep and invasive.

    Movies were a lot better during the Cold War as well, BRING BACK THE 80’s!

    At theguncounter.com forum we get about 200 attempted Russian spam signups per day. Somehow, they seem to make it through the filters, and I have to manually delete them from the approval queue.

    Well, at least the Russians are saving us from zombies.

    E.g., this song is a very good demonstration, watch this video: (eta pesnya ochen’ horashaya demonstratziya, nabloodaitee eto video):

    Sneaky Russians! Even when they were Communists, I knew it was just a marketing gimmick to show how cool they were,

    Weird. All my spam is originating in China right now.

    I second the pawnbroker’s comment.

    The USSR exported the peace movement among other malicious memes planted to destroy the western countries from within.

    The most significant export from the USSR is the least known. The interviews of Yuri Bezmenov should be viewed by anyone who wonders what the hell is happening to the country.

    Sorry to split hairs, but those dolls, if you are talking about the ones that nest inside each other, are called Matrooshka dolls. I guess I can see, however, how they might get called babushka dolls, as they sort of look like babushkas (the Russian word for grandmothers).
