Maybe I'm getting old, but I just don't understand spam these days:

I received the above via a site message (through a CAPTCHA). What's the product? What's the scam? Help me out here. Is this a phishing attempt? There are no url-encoded parameters to identify me... or perhaps the domains themselves are unique per spam recipient, which seems excessive. (Characters have been transposed above... just in case.)

All in all, this spam is unusable and I've reported it to Jakob Nielsen.

Probably domain mapping to campaign specific linktrolling. Even some spammers cant deal with super-granular data, so the next level up would be per ISP or casting.

to give a nerdy answer :)

That makes sense. Still, even if they don't personally identify me (or my site), I won't visit any of the URLs on principle.
