Africa calling cards

One Man Safari (http://onemansafari.blogspot.com/), a really nifty found-art blog, disappeared recently. Poof. Gone. The feed stopped working and the home page gave a 404 "Not Found" error. I don't know what happened, but I'm bummed. I'm really missing the daily eye treat this blog provided.

Anyway today in my Bloglines account, I see that I'm now subscribed to the "Africa Calling Cards" feed. And in the one and only entry in the feed, its a pitch for something called "IP-telephony phone cards". I'm not sure that even makes sense. Whatever. I figured out my subscription to One Man Safari was replace with this craptacular spam one at the server. Yup, I visit the One Man Safari site and its now the "Africa Calling Cards" spam site.

Damn spammers. They're like mosquitoes, you'll never ever really get rid of them, you just have to learn to live with them and hope they don't give you a disease.

Anyone know what happened to One Man Safari?
