When ham and spam do not cover the spectrum

Bart,

As long as we do not make the distinction and call everything spam, we make it harder to find solutions. Mollom takes away the pain of what is typical spam, and that's why I am now only confronted with the atypical spam that is very targeted, takes effort to remove and some may even accept those comments as useful (or are being tricked into it).

What's even more, if Mollom does not make the distinction, I and others are making Mollom less effective because the atypical spam is diffusing the extremes.

Mollom and human comment spam

Bart,

In your article you seem to be confusing automated spam and normal people trying to advertise commercial websites through on-topic comments.
