These people really did go to far too much work...

Digging through the Rolls logs, I find that the spammers went to some real effort. They bothered to put real data into many of the fields -- they hooked the name fields up to name generators, location fields up to location generators, the whole nine yards. They even generated fake email addresses for the email fields. Clearly, they thought that there were automated mechanisms here doing data validation on the fields. And all completely to no avail: I still think the entire exercise was pointless, and the spam entries just look different from real ones, so it doesn't actually slow me down in deleting them.

(Although I'm not quite sure what they were thinking when they kept putting "square coffee table" into the Interests field...)
