What Costumes Do Spam Villains Wear?

I just marked a couple of comments as spam. They were from “Mortgage Man” and “Credit Guy.” Each linked to the same web site. Which raised the questions:

  • What other spam villains lurk in the same lair? Bankruptcy Boy? Loan Lad? Hedge Fund Hombre? Refinance Girl?
  • Why didn’t Akismet mark this nonsense as spam? Because it’s not the most blatant example of spam, and not enough people had previously warned Akismet about that particular nest of spam villains?
