    Spam a lot with his URL. Here is what I got from wordpress

    "Akismet, our anti-spam service located and alerted us to several instances of comment spam from your account (i.e. leaving comments on other blogs with the primary intention of directing traffic elsewhere). We have a zero tolerance policy for such behavior, and as such, you will need to refrain from this particular activity in the future. If it does continue, your blog will be permanently suspended"

    I used on IP for the spam and one for logging to wordpress.com.

    I guess that qualifies as Blackhat but who actually got this message? Also, the BHW community is kind of split on taking out rivals in such a manner so let the debate begin. As for myself, it's a big Internet out there and I rather spend my time promoting my own sites rather than worrying about rivals.

    I know of a better method that will get the wordpress.com blog banned. Doesn't involve spamming other wordpress blogs just to let akismet find out about it. Still, this method is good i guess.

    I used this just to experiment. I don't think that some proxys will help. Isn't natural to post 8000 comments in few hours...
