I haven't seen the story as a whole. I get hit by comment and news/link
submission spam myself so I assumed this was a case of comment spam with a
URL that is a SERP.

I know someone who was hit by big piles of comment spam with Yahoo as the
URL. Needless to say, this indicated a test run, of which I see plenty
recently. They also obfuscate words like p0ker and v1agra to get past the
filters. (change in encoding, not numbers and symbols which does not help
them with SERP's)

E-mail spammers have a similar way of interfering with innocent
people/businesses. Their reply-to addresses call for trouble with
boxtrappers and nasty replies from spam victims.
