What's the function of avoiding notice, though? Spamming old posts may keep the site owner from seeing and deleting the spam, but wouldn't it also prevent potential suckers from seeing it? I don't dispute that they use this tactic, I'm just not clear on what it accomplishes.

What does comment spamming accomplish in general? Rational thinking isn't the strongpoint of the average spammer.

I'm certainly no tech guy but I understand the purpose of comment spamming is to fly under the radar. They're not looking for direct clickthrus so much as links to be picked up by spiders which would boost their search rankings.
