What's the point of comment spam?

 Especially when the links don't point anywhere? I'm finding this mildly annoying, and I'm sure there's some of you out there who are getting bombarded with stupid comments that have nothing to do with the post. This one was one of my favorites - I wonder which part was technically innacurate?
