The payday loans hack was a big eye opener for me, too. I get tons of spam in my Wordpress comments, and have wondered why since I thought that tactic didn't work anymore. Now I feel like an idiot, because how cheap and easy is it to have software submit links everywhere for earn-n-burn sites? A lot cheaper and easier than what I'm doing on my sites built for humans.
