Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
Can someone PLEASE explain the thought process behind these incessant comment-spams? I sincerely don't get it. This SPAM is so incredibly annoying I would never visit one of their sites even if the subject matter appealed to me , which it doesn't. So where's the gain for them? It seems like all they are doing is alienating potential customers. It's like they're trying to piss off as many people as possible, so their site won't get any traffic at all. I understand the viagra junkmail and the PayPal phishing scams... those are targetted at folks who may not realize they're getting screwed over. But it seems like these comment spams are essentially saying "HEY PHUCK YOU I'M ANNOYING AND YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T WANT ME HERE SO CHECK OUT MY SITE!!" Maybe I'm being dense, but I don't see the appeal. Forget the "war on drugs" and the "war on Iraq"... 2005 needs to be the "war on spam".

Its got nothing to do with trying to get you to visit their sites. Instead its all about increasing their Google ranking -- and its well known that Google rankings are based a lot on how many sites link to yours.
