Spam Spam Spammity Spam

Tell me–does this blog strike you as the kind of thing people are going to read if they’re interested in designer handbags? Because I just got spam for Louis Vuitton and Chanel knockoffs, and I am perplexed. Usually there’s at least a vague attempt to match up blog content with spam content (except for drug spam; that’s just everywhere).

Of course I don’t get the comment-spam thing anyway; does that ever work? Who’s reading a post on some subject that interests them, comes upon a link to something only vaugely related in the comments, and thinks, “Sure, I’ll go look at designer knockoffs!”?

    In general it seems the first tier tech is trying to push any spam out. The best stuff then gets farmed out/used by the next tier. This usually involves more targeted attacks.

    Also, I stopped assuming software was foolproof when it was proven that the net could keep engineering stupider fools.

    So, while the idea seems ridiculous, I can see people falling for it.
