This is news??

   June saw a spike in spam hosted on Chinese domains, where the figure 
   rose from almost zero to 450 spam domains.

Funny, I thought I was seeing [or more properly, already reliably 
rejecting] well over 450 spamvertised links that dead-ended in APNIC 
blocks back in, oh, 2002 or thereabouts.  Most designed to coax 
credit-card numbers from the unwary.

If they're just now figuring this out, that would explain something!
