SEO spammers' last-ditch efforts to save themselves
A couple years ago, the comments on my blog started to become overrun with spam, as I'm sure everyone with a blog can relate to. The email alerts were incessant. I had to turn them off, and I stopped paying attention to whether anyone commented altogether. I was essentially run out of my own blog by SEO scoundrels who were trying to game the system by seeding blogs everywhere with links to their shitty sites.
