What I've seen so far is that most spammers use a zombie network, and
the small bits of code they run uses the internet explorer engine
that's present on the hijacked machines.
Which means, if you do this:
in your anti-spam plugin, you'll notice that most spammers see a
significant slowdown of their botnet after a few spam attempts, and
take your weblog URL out of their list and leave you alone.
