Epistolary ramblings about technology & software development
Comment spam is evolving
See Assaf's analysis. Is it totally automated? Or generated by humans? (And does it matter in choosing defensive strategies?) Text with the only suspicious item being a link to a suspicious site is more difficult to deal with -- the referent may be fine when you check it, but change to an SEO spam site two days later, for example. And just checking web sites is expensive too.
