A new spam attack is in the works. As longtime readers know, we continue to fight comment and trackback spam. Tonight I decided to check out what was up with the latest spammer strategy which contains a URL that has the tag "itsok" associated with it. It turns out that this type of spam is trying to corrupt the spam blacklists (which are proving to be very effective) by adding legitimate sites to the list. You can find our more here.

The floor is now open.
