blog spam. what does it achieve?

I usually scan my email junk folder to pick out those I recognise and delete the rest.

Tedious, but it works well enough.

Any business that I’m expecting to respond will need to make it clear that they are not spam.

It’s their loss, if I ignore them.

With my blog, I am utterly non-plussed by spammers.

Any pingback/comment that show an attempt to sell, are automatically earmarked as spam and destroyed.

There is no way that I even need to check those earmarked, so why do they bother?

I can not see the profit. All they do is, temporarily, waste other people’s memory space.

I appreciate that their cost is minimal but, unless they land some really big fish, they must be losing money.

Am I missing something here?
