What's with the essay mills?

For some reason, I'm getting comment spam from essay and thesis mills, that is, those sites that promise to write an essay or thesis for you for cash. Given that the spam is barely legible English already -- the words are English but the syntax is dubious -- it's (a) not a great advert for the quality of the end-product should you partake of the service, and (b) frigging annoying to me. One of them was posted to my "Bye, Dad" post, not something that would endear me to the comment or commenter anyway.

So far, all such comment spam is coming from Blocked.
