Comment Spam of the Day

Published on 3 April 2008 in ,

Most of the time, the comment spam I get from my blog is pretty ordinary junk - sex sites, MP3s, etc. Then there's the "posting almost-geniune looking comments but with a hidden agenda to promote a commercial web URL" - which seem to have a strange focus on buying houses, double glazing and, for some reason, a lingerie blog.
