I think you're the third or fourth person on my FL who's said something about this in the last couple days. Is your spam a YouTube link, too?

I had a couple, both on posts I made to communities , one from 2006 the other from 2003. They can't spam most of my journal because it's friends only.

The email notification has what appears to be a you tube link in it --- I don't know what the link is too, I haven't followed it. The link photo is of a page of text.

Neither of the spammers appears to have an LJ account -- or at least LJ couldn't find one. Nor do either of the comments appear in the comments to the posts.

I stopped seeing any new spam when I reset my blog so only friends could comment without being screened. But I'd have to say that not clicking through to find out what's on the other side is smart.

I've had mine configured almost forever to allow only registered accounts to comment.

The most recent one was an embedded video. I didn't look to see what it was.
The one before that, a test link to someplace Russian.
