An interview with a blog comment spammer has been posted. It appears that link spammers use open relay proxies to spam, and not zombie PCs. And because of this, they feel that they are better than email spammers.
I know, that I hate when my sites are hit with a flurry of link spams. All of the spam messages are blocked, so that isn't the problem. The problem that I have is with the server load needed to handle all of these request.
But now that I have collected a list of the ip addresses that the spam comments are coming from, I am going to submit them to the open relay blacklist sites.
