Eyeball farmers or phishing boats?

Despite not having updated in a few days, I’m getting a lot of spam comments on my posts. They’re fairly obviously from non-native English speakers (or people who are nearly illiterate), so they’re easy to spot, and since I have comment moderation turned on, they’re not making it through, but they’re still annoying.

The strangest thing is that Gmail flags most of the notifications as spam, since they contain the comment text with characteristic bad grammar and the associated link to some eyeball farm or phishing site. I glanced into my Spam folder a few days ago, saw one and then went looking for more.
