Ah cool, so instead of wasting resources on building anti-spam
datacentres like what they use for Akismet, we could go to Kamino and
get them to build us a clone army of human comment spam filters.

We could give them the capability only to log onto our WordPress
installations and spam or de-spam the comments without the worry of them
posting blog posts or editing comments. 100% accuracy.

Brilliant! :)
