Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

As Jeff Mentioned GWB has been getting a lot of spam, and yes I too have been a victim. But lately I've seen something different come in the way of spam. You see usually the .Text engine send you an email when a there is a comment posted on one of your blog entries, and typically for spam the message is obtrusive, unrelavant, sometimes obscene, and just play eyesore. Bottom line, you know when you have comment spam just by looking at your inbox.

But heres what I've been seeing recently (but not quite a lot thankfully) there is a spam script(s) that basically uses the contents of one the earlier comments for the message body, so infact it looks like a legitimate comment. Just that the trackback is wrong. Cheeky aint it!
