They are much tinier than their hundred URL laden predecessors, but the newst breed of WordPress spam roaches are awfully deceiving- these are all critters who had their little legs caught in SpamKarma 2 (only because I have set it to require moderation for all posts):

These are actually quite human sounding (some even flattering), and the roachiness appears in a single URL, in the repetition (though these are often spaced hours apart). I’ve found it worthwhile to let them queue up a bit in the SpamKarma 2 moderation pile for a while.
