    Large French newspaper spamming?

    This spam comment was placed on a (at the moment out of use) site of mine:

    Thanks for sharing superb informations. Your web-site is so cool. I am impressed by the details that you have on this website. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found just the info I already searched everywhere and just couldn't come across. What a perfect website.




    'Le Monde' ( Le Monde - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) is a large newspaper in France. So I was thinking why the heck would a spammer try to place a link to their site.Is Le Monde really hiring people to do that? It's a newspaper so surely must receive a ton of natural links al the time.

    Thoughts come to mind:

    1) They hired a SEO company that is taking shortcuts.
    2) Spammer is testing a bot and randomly using a newspaper link.
    3) Spammer using the link as camouflage to make a list.

    I go more with number two.
    I get comment spam all the time using google, msn, yahoo, aol (now you know that is spam!!!!) links.
    Just like directories, when I had some, get spam using google, etal.
    Then how about proxy llists?
    I get submissions all the time using google, etal.

    So how about a number four: Kids with time on their hands.

    I also agree with this man,
    It is near to fact.
