Comment moderation

I don't understand why spammers bother with small blogs like mine. There isn't the traffic to get them attention even if I was willing to approve their comments. My rules are simple: no links (because I'm not going to expose my readers to viruses), no languages I don't understand, the comments must be somehow relevant, and nothing anonymous.

Okay, that's my rant for the day.

I have the same problem...every day I have 10 or more porn type cpmments on "Spikes day" or "My zero waste day".....no idea why and it is a minor annoyance to mod them away...but still...

Agree with you on this!

My problem was with the Chinese comments. I was at first quite excited to have a comment from China and so popped it into Google translator - then wished I hadn't. The problem is that the link from there identity took you to a porn site too even without then adding a link.

The others are those who just pop by and say something impersonal just so that they get to post their commercial site using the ident link.

I don't want to have to moderate comments as I know people like to see their comment straight away. As you say why do they even bother?
