I have to say, I’m really impressed by the results of the comment spam campaign apparently being run by the loser lowlives at macinstruct.NET. Though sleazeballs who would sell their own mothers for ten page views, they seem to have done a very good job of figuring out how to successfully place comment spam, and have it stick. They’ve got a very impressive roster of placements to stick long enough for Google to find them: JD Lasica, Les Orchard, Dean Peters, Peter Merholz, Molly Holzschlag, Charles Miller, Morgaine LeFaye…
Alexander Morozov, whatever your real name is, I’m impressed. That was very well done: using the Mac-love of bloggers to calm their fears, stealing content from a site that cluelessly delivers their HTML as
text/plain so it doesn’t display in Firefox, and thus lots of blogger will have never seen it, putting your link in the comment body on sites where HTML is allowed but the link from comment names is redirected: you did good. Shame you went to the well a bit too often, so I saw it more than once, and started searching, and double shame about that one with both the Rod K and MacInstruct spams.
Jay, are you listening, or do I have to submit this one (which, of course, I don’t have myself :) ).
