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.
