What I've seen so far is that most spammers use a zombie network, and  
the small bits of code they run uses the internet explorer engine  
that's present on the hijacked machines.

Which means, if  you do this:

	header("Location: http://some-really-large-download.iso");

in your anti-spam plugin, you'll notice that most spammers see a  
significant slowdown of their botnet after a few spam attempts, and  
take your weblog URL out of their list and leave you alone.
