Akismet Failed to Fight Spam... a Little

I noticed that lately Akismet is getting more and more unreliable. Its job is to analyze comments and determine whether or not it is a spam; but some days ago I noticed new comments (more than one!) that was clearly spam. There were a lot of links to crazy websites, and some even only gives a stream of endless text!

I suppose those were meant to fool programs that check whether a website is legitimate or not (by exhausting their time and bandwith), but I can’t see how Akismet marked it as non-spam; it was too obvious. Akismet’s fault or not, I had submitted the spam to Akismet to teach it a lesson ;)
