evolving modes

We know comment spam. But did I miss a step, or is this a new thing? Blog spam? Spamblog? SpmoG? More (apparently from same "source") here and here and here and here, here, here, and many more.

Like ennui, spam is a wondrous teacher.

I wonder if it's purpose is to record where you're coming from as a hook for a place to send more spam ?

i'm still trying to figure out if the pet insurance is for ducks, or if we're supposed to, like, "Duck!"

I've seen these kind of blogs coming up in my referral log for a while. Spammers are so much smarter than us. They are first to market smarties.

I hate them.

WE BUILD OWNERSHIP. More than awareness, we make your brand the brand of choice. We make consumers part of the design process. We find out what they want, and give it to them. We find out what message, tone and style will create brand loyalty, and what won't. We give them a voice.

That's wearisome enough. But these spamblogs appear to be generated by robots. Could be the blogosphere growing a new appendage: 5 billion new blogs, machine tooled, posting daily boilerplate nonsense in the service of addlepated industries. Interesting consequences for "social software."

OK. We are ready. Kombinat! is for hire to make Absolute Fake Blogs on Brands. We'll ghostwrite anything. We require a montly paycheck of 1 Billion Yurinkini Drahmas. Any takers? I mean it.
