Well, seems that there is a new generation of spam-blogs around, this time, reference-blogging, simply instating \<Blog Name> wrote an interesting post today on \<topic>  Here's a quick excerpt \<paste>.  It seems to be parsing the web or a selection of RSS feeds for the OpenID keyword, and simply spamming out the junk via trackbacks.

My guess is that it is trying to up its Google Ranking in an attempt of Optimizing results for a future ad-farm.

Anyhow,  If OpenID is that popular, why do this?  Or perhaps not as popular?  I don't know, and I don't have the patience to dig in it more, as I have laundry to deal with now.
