Commenter Lars Bergestrom contributed a seemingly thoughtful comment this morning. In this process of replying to him, I noticed some hidden link coding in his message:
On the Manpollo-forums we had something similar a while ago: a seemingly innocent post where a link to the spammer's website was invisible as the text was set to the page's background color.
Daniel: well spotted!
In case it may be of use:
CSS commands work from last to first unless the term !important is used, in which case each new command with !important appended takes precedence over any following command.
The effect is used legitimately to produce different effects in different browsers, but can be tweaked to obfuscate/hide code.
