Courteous spammer proliferates

Stephen Baker

Rob Hof notes that an extremely courteous spammer showed up in the comments of Techbeat touting three phrases: Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate. I encountered him here too. Turned out the spammer was promoting a penis enlargement site. I did a Google search to see where that spammer is landing. By Google's count, it has showed up on more than 18,000 blogposts. That's up 5,000 in the last day.
