Can spammers leave signals to a spam bot in comments?
I got a comment yesterday that had strange symbols in it and I was wondering if it was a way of signaling spam bots. Ie if I allowed the comment it would tell spam bots that it was an easy site to comment on.
The comment itself seemed to relate to the post albeit very poorly written. I also thought it odd that the web link was just a series of letters that led nowhere.
Am I being paranoid or can they signal to spam bots through links and symbols in comments?
