Affable Hurt Bibliographer?

I recently discovered a wonderful "splog"—spam blog*—automatically created from a host of blog posts about LibraryThing for Libraries, most or all of them from posts by Kate Sheehan (Loose Cannon Librarian), who wondered whether she had perhaps written it during a very lost weekend.

Parts sound almost sane:
"LibraryThing adds three pieces relative to truth-function"

"Tags are not usually predominate. Subjects’ reign and delitescent all for hierarchical major orders cannot have being excepted. And, contrasting cute inessential systems, Danbury exceptionally to advantage aliases overused obligation, anodyne about speaking of the fetid problems"

"They causes your mescal button gig on route to pullulate for splendrous calcium. Okay, not that."
(Okay, not that indeed!) Parts both insane and titilating:
"Turned-on? If your ghoulish rapport seeing LibraryThing in preparation for Libraries present-time your fill out, impart us an email at sandy"

"Studied that a check in is tagged "lambkin tanked" isn’t inevitably that sound. In any event prosper onwards the moniker, and oneself opens the Nip Browser in preference to rooster star-studded. The trim you gives amounts until dowhacky tied "The Peacock Soaked Pedantry Rise"–without Lauren Weisberger and Jennifer Weiner for Sophie Kinsella till Emma McLaughlin, all-inclusive nearby at the Danbury stock room."
Will someone check the Danbury stock room, please? Something strange is going on in there.

*Unlinked to. Linking to splogs is a good way to tell Google you're a splog too—you

I think it was created from a machine translation (into something else and then back into English, sort of) of your post announcing LTFL at Danbury- the footnotes are the dead giveaway.

Still, if I'm changing my blog name to Affable Hurt Bibliographer, I think you should change Abby's title to "facia bibliomaniac"

I think "Lambkin Tanked" is a great band name. Or maybe the first album for Colonel Panic (the other band name I came up with from working at LT).

"LibraryThing adds three pieces relative to truth-function" would go nicely on a T-shirt. Or a bookplate.

I love this to bits. My vote for the new tshirt - "LibraryThing: Prosper Onwards the Moniker!"
