On the collector the spam is *apparently* a korean character title 
(which comes through as garbage) and then two links in the body, in 
this case all on romanian domains. Since I don't use M$ browsers and 
don't have to fear trojans I clicked one of them once, it seems to be 
porn for a Korean audience. I have no access to the logs so I can't 
tell where the requests come from.
