I consider myself fairly knowledgable in the world of comment spam, but this one leaves me completely baffled… Two comments were posted right after each other to two different entries, with two different e-mail addresses but identical text. Here it is:
IP Address: 184.108.40.206
Name: yellow antelope
Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Think of every yellow antelope you know – they do not match! Enchanted experience of betting and gambling with yellow antelope http://spaces.msn.com/members/rear-animels/ yellow antelope is what I was looking for.
The MSN Spaces blog linked in the comment has only two entries, and they’re complete nonsense. The text files they link to on 50webs.com make even less sense, since they have no hidden links and no apparent purpose.
Theoretically, they could be driving up the pagerank of these seemingly benign pages, and then replace them en masse with advertising pages… But why inflate the search engine ranking of the pages for terms like “purple clown” and “yellow antelope”?
June 22, 2005: More bizarre animal spam today, apparently from the same people as the antelope spam. This one uses Blogspot instead of MSN Spaces:
