Spamhunters alert

Take a look at the "Why do I need Health Insurance?" post.
When I found it, after Santee, both spam posts had one +1 vote... so, the bugger is actually logging in, putting up the spambait, changing logins, giving his OP a plus vote, putting up his spam payload, changing logins again, and then giving his spam payload a plus vote, too.
Now, he slipped up on that one, greedily putting a link in the spambait, but he has an even more artfully executed one in Questions, even making use of "Chosen Answer!!!"

Take no prisoners! Scalps, yes, prisoners, no. Don't let the smart ones entrench themselves.
Actually, this means a single spamhunter can't take their vote total to negatives, so extra cooperation is required.

Nasty specimen...

Going to such lengths for something so unseemly as spamming... what a waste.

Sounds like a lot of trouble

for something we're going to squash anyway. It eliminates the efficiency of spamming, the only business advantage it has.

But if the bugger gets his spambait tuned to not arouse suspicion, it's actually pretty good camouflage. At least, I don't read every post, and I might skip something that doesn't sound like spam, and has a plus vote.
It's not very likely, but it's a possibility.

Ah, the ever popular double post.

Gone missing for a couple of years, it reappears under the New World Order.
