After my first spam comments in quite some time, I've gone to comment moderation - and dropped the word verification step, since it didn't prevent this particular spammer. Grr.
And the worst part is that I don't even speak the language the comments arrived in. I bet it was good stuff, though.
I wonder if it has something to do with signing up to test Google's AdSense program. No ads have shown up yet, so I guess it hasn't been crawled, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear that someone has gamed AdSense to get there first as a spam commenter.
