Comment Spam Extortion Racket?

This comment on Trampoline Systems' blog made me smile -

hello , my name is Richard and I know you get a lot of spammy comments , I can help you with this problem . I know a lot of spammers and I will ask them not to post on your site. It will reduce the volume of spam by 30-50% .In return Id like to ask you to put a link to my site on the index page of your site. The link will be small and your visitors will hardly notice it , its just done for higher rankings in search engines. Contact me icq 454528835 or write me tedirectory(at)yahoo.com , i will give you my site url and you will give me yours if you are interested. thank you

I know you get a lot of spammy comments , I can help you with this problem . I know a lot of spammers....

Kind of like walking into a newsagent and saying "ya know, I can't help noticing you got a lot of paper in here... that's kind of a fire trap, ya know what I'm sayin?"

If this guy really does know a lot of spammers, I'm sure someone out there knows a lot of Federal Agents who'd like to talk to him - his ICQ number and email address are in the quote. ;-)

I got the same comment and had a good laugh myself. The sad part is that I'm sure several people totally went for it.

Normally I delete spam comments as soon as I can, but I just felt like leaving that one there for the irony. :-)
