I think I got my first LJ comment spam this weekend.

Their clever ruse, ruined by Don Ho.

What IP was it posted from? I bet some poor lass in Uzbekistan is getting paid $3 per week to sit in an internet cafe and post this crap.

There's an image link to an image at "http://www.specialtyloans.net/images/passion2.jpg" which appears broken. Not sure if it's actually a bad link or if they just did that so they can track requests for the invalid image.

I'd have been less surprised if it were for Viagra or something, but I guess this isn't far from the online christian dating spam I've seen before.

Japan, not Uzbekistan. Maybe Osaka, based on traceroute. Interesting, I wouldn't have expected Japanese to be cheap enough to be worthwhile for the spammers.

Crazy. I was mostly surprised by the automated nature of mine, that it just grabbed the music field in an attempt to seem on topic.
