Anti-child exploitation site exploited by spammers

I first became involved in fighting spam when spammers started advertising rape pornography in the sexual abuse recovery newsgroups. It's sad to say that nothing has changed since then.

In today's news, ChatMag reports that the Perverted Justice web site — which specializes in catching and exposing child predators — has attracted large volumes of comment spam advertising mainly viagra.

I'd like to say I'm surprised at how low spammers can get, but actually, I'm not.

What timing, I had just learned of that site, perverted justice when looking up something related to "CE." That type of spam attack does not surprise me in the very least.
