Second post in a day... Turns out that the WaPo posted on XRumer back in January. The article is here, with comments. Note that the comments are, except for four, all by Russian spammers. Who are tagging the Washington Post with high-fives because they've caught the attention of the mainstream.
If that doesn't blow your pretty little mind, I'm not sure what will. I love this century!
So again: I'll help you block XRumer if you want. Just drop me a line and we'll talk. This ought to be fun.
