Spam for Spam

My comment spam filter has picked up a couple of spam comments of a new breed recently: spam comments advertising comment spamming services. It’s a bit odd on a number of fronts. First of all, why waste resources you could be using to push out spam for your clients? Or has the economic downturn affected the spammers’ business, too? Secondly, the comments were collected by my spam filter. That means the only person who will see them is me. And because the comments were caught by the filter, I’d be pretty dubious as to their ability to get anything advertising my services past anyone else’s filters. All in all, it doesn’t seem to be good business.

I know it sucks. Blame Google for all the rubbish that gets posted on blogs, if they didn’t insist on backlinks no one would be wasting their time doing this!
