The Oddest Kind of Comment Spam …

. . . is one that WordPress has been stopping. It consists of comments that merely duplicate earlier comments on a blog post.

These pseudo-commenters generally use free accounts—Hotmail, Gmail, etc.—no surprise there.

Often there is a URL linked to the commenter’s name, but instead of directing you to a site trying to sell something, it just goes to a blog with no entries.

So what is the point?
