I was away for a while on a big work project (not yet done, but slowing down, now) and came back to my WP blog and noticed a pile of comment spam in the spam queue. Good for akismet for catching it all.
But I'm curious. It seems almost all of the comment spam has targeted 2 specific posts. Both posts are about banks doing bad things. I closed comments early on the first one, so the spammers can't post at all. Now the next one is being targeted.
Any ideas from anyone why these posts would be specifically targeted? Is "bank" a popular attractor for comment spammers? Or am I being too paranoid when I think about the idea that the banking industry is pushing this spam, somehow?
The blog I need help with is blog.motre.net.
