What is the point of Wordpress spam commenting?


Akismet did update Wordpress sites yesterday, but just before the update, I found one bizarre spam message in my inbox, shown above.  It was odd how it referred to topics I have blogged about (like the Minnesota Orchestra).  I don’t really see the point of it.  There were some spammy links at the bottom. It's hard to imagine how this could make anyone money.
 
I couldn’t get Wordpress to pull up the action boxes normally.  I was able to get rid of it by scanning all comments for spam.  Very odd.
