I somehow doubt blogspam would ever appear very natural. A very prolific poster might hit 5 blogs on a day within their relevant niche. Even at 5 / day, they're not going to continue that rate of new RELATED blog signing very long I wouldn't think.
I don't think it was ever about "being natural" or quality with blog spam...more about sheer quantity of anchor text. Trying to do it slowly kinda takes most the benefit out of blog spamming I would think.

That is the point that too many links in one go will harm you. You do it nice and slow and get many links from different c class ip's then it would look more "natural"

I'd think the links you posted the first month would be deleted by the time you got to the third month. I delete spammy comments from my blogs within a day of them showing up. How is this a worthwhile way to spend your time?

Crush was talking about dead blogs - these comments wouldn't be deleted.

Hello Guys =)
Hmm.. nice topic to come up with blog spamming to talk about Link development, but I would think that there are some problems with this:
a.) Dead blogs are not really relevant, neither new content, nor lot of power that could be transfered through links
b.)many systems implemented nofollow systems by now
c.) As it was said already, there are only a few relevant weblogs in your business..
For building up links, I would consider it far more intelligent to set up an own weblogs, blog about your business, and then comment and trackback as suited for the weblog topic.
There are many weblogs that refer and mention great content/websites if you ask them, and many small refereres are not at all bad.

good idea, you'll need a reliable way of identifying them.
you better have a long list of dead blogs.

what do you think will beat the sandbox? I don't have trouble coming out of the sandbox, I just wait 9 to 12 months for my sites to season and then one day they pop out of their google gestation period and go to the front of the class. my problem is staying out of the sandbox entirely. I can get rid of the common cold, too. I just take several medicines to alleviate the symptoms while staying in bed for 5 days. then a day of withdrawal suffering from the medications and it's gone. see, I'm cured! the problem is in NOT getting it as in the case of a cold and not getting into it in the case of the sandbox.
I do think gaining links in a somewhat steady rate is a good idea in that a site should always be getting links, but if the linking rate was too steady could that be a identifiable or be a bad thing? a steady rate accented with something similar to stephen j gould's "punctuated equilibrium" (PE) [en.wikipedia.org...]

Having had to introduce some anti spam software to my site to stop up to 3 gig of spam a month, I would happily whip and quarter any person advocating spamming blogs

A top site in my niche has thousands of spam blog links. So tempting to follow suit but I cant bring myself to do it. Luckily my whole income doesnt depend on it so I speak from a vantage point over those who feel they have no choice (or are plain greedy). Pains me to see Google treat such a site so well, though Im not 100% sure its all because of thse links (they have some others which seem relevant). Was hoping Nofollow would put an end to it and see the offending site rightly humbled but my initial observation is that most sites arent implementing this (less so 'dead' blogs). So i sit watching this site making good money from a very bad practice. To make this post relevant to the thread i add this comment: I think it still works, depending on niche (i.e. depending on quality links of competing sites), but Google will pull the plug one day and I hope soon

How do you compile a list of dead blogs?

You can either hang out in dark bars and get "introduced" to people who will help you with that, or you can Yahoo Search it (or Google it, or MSN Search it).
Nobody's going to post that on a public forum where Google or Yahoo or MSN Search read.
