Headless zombie computers that are no longer being told how to spam? Build up reputation with spam filters before a big dump? Five to one ratio of reputable links to crap links to keep in good standing with Askimet?

A good question indeed.

If you search Google for "Guorri Hugo" you'll see the same basic messages posted to countless blogs and forums.

"Congratulations on a great web site. I am a new computer user and finding you was like coming home."

The only point that I could guess would be along the lines of what Galen suggested, though it seems like that is a lot more work than it is worth?
