Blammed by the Chinese
Same code found via Google.
Looking at the code, it is unicode. Since Windows handles unicode differently than Linux does, I was a bit concerned that it could be some sort of unicode shellcode for exploiting a Windows system through the browser. I need not have worried. Clicking on the link via the Windows version of Firefox led me to a Chinese porn site.
Blogspotplay.com web page displaying Chinese porn.
I confirmed this on my Linux system as well. I'm rather disappointed in more ways than one since there wasn't any decent porn displayed as a reward for curiosity. (I guess I should be grateful that it wasn't gay porn or something worse.) I was hoping for something a bit more cutting edge as far as browser exploits go rather than a Chinese HTML porn link. (If the site was malicious then my Windows XP Pro virtual machine just got compromised.) What made it annoying was that I had to delete all of the spam/blam comments from my blog. I certainly feel like I've been blammed electronically.

Sorry to hear about your blamming And that the porn was substandard.
There must be ways to improve quality.
It's capitalism in it's purest essence, trying to scam a buck without any concern for others. The Chinese are just the latest victims to be seduced by greed which is all too human. I'm sorry who were a victim as well. Hopefully, Google and blogger.com are enforcing their usage policies and are not tolerate of such behavior. Unfortunately, it's too easy to set up another blogger account and use the same program with the new account to continue their advertising scheme. I don't wish to turn on moeration, but I may have to to thwart these people.
