Spam as cockroach (welcome to blog spam)
Cockroaches: doesn't matter how many times you think you've killed them all and blocked their entry points, they keep coming back.
For those who think (foolishly, in my opinion), that Gmail has "solved" the spam problem...it's not just email: Blogosphere suffers spam explosion. This isn't hot news, exactly, but it's a nice comment on the growing problem of splogging (and notice that Frauenfelder uses "pollution", my favorite word for characterizing the problem). It's a cost imposed on a by-stander by the self-serving activities of another (in this case, usually advertising products for sale).
