Insight Into the World of Spam

This is a partially obscured screenshot from my comment-spam screen earlier this week. These two comments advertise two different commercial interests and were posted from two different IP addresses, both served from the same Seattle-based Internet Service Provider. Apparently they relied on two different computer-based translation tools.

Otherwise the two comments obviously came from the same source.

Another spam comment this week said the big problem with my blog was too many misspelled words.

What do they think they’re accomplishing with this?
