Comment spam alert
I just checked my activity log, and I'm seeing hundreds upon hundreds of comment spam attempts for "listbanx.com" and "leadbanx.com", all coming from the same IP address (220.127.116.11) and all in the last two days or so. Do yourself a favor and make sure your Comment Spam Master Blacklist is up to date (both those domains are in there), or at least ban that IP address and save yourself some grief.

I got sick of their spam too, so I decided to give them a call and found out that it wasn't them that were doing it.
There is a spamer that is hijacking traffic from search engine ranked companies and linking to his sites with their names in his keywords in them by using what ever their slogans or major ranked key words are in his individual sites.
There has to be a way for us to figure this out, but so far it has taken me over 5 days to get this far as of Friday.
