I expect that kind of spam probably draws at least a few clicks from the gullible so there's a reason the spammers keep doing it, but I can't imagine that posting Asian-language spam on Mobileread is getting clicks.

I do appreciate the work the moderators are doing to get rid of it.
I think this may be more of a 'denial of service' type attack' Someone getting 'even' for some sort of slieght
