    I wonder if there is any correlation.
    sure there is. a forum is only good for spamming if there are a signifcant amount of people on the forum and juicy news to keep them coming back.

    i wouldn't know, but it seems logical that somehow they could keep up with how many hits a certain forum gets (google?) to know when to release the spambots

    There's been a lot of spambots with a link to online casinos lately.. probably a single spammer under various addresses and usernames.
