Comments: Blog Spammer?

There are several reasons a blog could get tagged as a splog, most of which don't apply here as far as I can tell - excessive ad content, most links pointing to the same site, hidden text, posts all of a nearly identical size and added at regularly timed intervals (for example a new post added every 3 hours and 15 minutes), or identical posts posted to more than one blog.

That leaves a couple of possiblities: someone tagged it as spam or repetition of a keyword. My guess is it's the second one - the use of "tribulation(s)" in almost every post title (the larger text size probably didn't help here). Bots can't tell the difference between a theme and keyword stuffing.
