This seems to be just another of those annoying facts of life. I should be used to it by now, after all “Akismet has protected your site from 2,607 spam comments already.” However it seems to me that the spammers could perhaps do a better job of targeting their work. Maybe this is a breakthrough area for text analytics.
Saying that, what prompted me to refer to this rather sad phenomenon today was a recent spamvert (in English) for “on-line English classes.” I’m not sure if this was placed in reference to the author, or his readers. Either way I somehow feel diminished today.
