I agree about reducing FPs, but I'm not sure if adding blog
spammers would increase or decrease that.  I guess I'm not
familiar with them.

Are the blog spammers scammers and criminals like professional
mail spammers?  Do they advertise legitimate sites, or the usual
pill and mortgage sites in Korea, China and Brazil?
