    Just got this spam comment on a blog designed for kids in hospital:

    Commenter: blog hosting
    akmalzorbola@gmail.com

    URL: http://wordpress.com

    IP: 211.76.175.5

    Comment Text: blog hosting [url=http://wordpress.com]blog hosting[/url] blog hosting [url= http://wordpress.com ] blog hosting [/url]

    If this is not from wordpress I'd hope you do something about it. If it is, well . . .

    No not spamming; excepting if wordpress.org have moved their hosting in with the National Health Research Institute of Taiwan?

    I'd seen that too. Still it would behoove wordpress to complain about this.
    This was possibly a test spam to see if it could work but the fact that they're using it to advertise wordpress should be worrisome. I doubt if I'm the only one who got this.
