If Kryptonite Was Dwight Howard's Only Concern . . .

Communication is good.

Health would be better.

Defense would be best.

The Lakers lost again Wednesday night, falling to the Memphis Grizzlies, 106-93.

“Just another chapter in a difficult season,” Steve Nash said.

The Lakers took another injury hit with Dwight Howard aggravating the labrum injury to his right shoulder a couple minutes before halftime. Unlike last time he hurt it and the pain faded, Howard said after the game: “It still hurts.” Howard has been doing exercises to strengthen the shoulder and protect against aggravation, but it happened anyway and he will be evaluated by a specialist Thursday.

Howard’s absence contributed to the Lakers’ seventh consecutive road loss, and they haven’t won a road game in more than a month. The unity that they hoped would come from a team meeting earlier in the day was blown away by another wave of defensive breakdowns after sundown, and they’ve lost 10 of their past 12 overall to drop to 17-25.

Memphis took control of the game early in the second quarter when Howard and Pau Gasol were on the court together — the pairing Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni has been trying to avoid — with poor guard play from Chris Duhon and Darius Morris.

I've basically eliminated spam on my blog via the comment filter.

So today someone writes:

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Of course, I'm leaving out the part where they attempt to sell their site. But what is curious is the first couple of sentences. Actually doesn't sound like a machine.

Manual spammer?
