Idly deleting the blogspam in Akismet I see that this blog appears to have got spam from… itself.

Your investigation have been helpfull for me. I wish everybody writes article as this.
WTF? Well, I suppose it’s always possible that I am suffering from a brain disease that makes me both send out spam at random and forget that I’ve sent it.
Plus removes any native-speaking familiarity with the English langauge.
Not to mention that it seems that I’ve been absent-mindedly visiting Turkey without realising it. Because this host is what that IP resolves to (assuming, for no good reason, that the originating IP isn’t spoofed)

This really pisses me off. If the spammers are so prolific that they’ve spammed the blog they were using as a pretend source, how many other blogs have got spams that seem to originate from here?
Does anyone have any suggestions about what to do about this?
