I wish someone would explain spam to me.

What is the point of leaving spam with a link to bing or Yahoo? Are these spammers paid by bing to seed their links?

What about the guy who leaves a link to his own Facebook profile? Is he hoping people will friend him? Not working so far by the looks of his 300-odd friends.

And spam seems to come in concerted attacks. Today, I’ve gotten about 20 spam comments on this blog. Each has a different name, a different typo-filled comment, a different email address and listed as their web site a link back to bing, Yahoo or in one case a guy’s Facebook profile.

What’s the point?
