I get a lot of spam comments on my blog. They're left by bots and link back to pills that offer promises of arousal or weight loss. These spam comments would never be mistaken for real comments by any human moderating them. But the other day, I saw one that might make it past a few people. It started with the usual link to pills online, then in parenthesis it said, "I'm being held captive by the Russian Mafia, and they're making me post spam comments on blogs! Please post this to your comments and help." Then that was followed by more links to pills. It's a bit clever. I suppose someone does have to write these comments. Maybe I should have helped that guy out. It's the most clever spam I've ever read, well, besides this blog post.
