WordPress comment spamming usually becomes an issue for many bloggers when their blog starts getting significant traffic.
It’s something that is pretty much expected and can really become an issue for a lot of bloggers who are unfamiliar with how to deal with it.

Who are all these people constantly trying to sell Viagra, sex dolls or their lame biz-op?
Who in their right mind, in this industry of online marketing, thinks that writing an obvious comment that was clearly spun with a free article spinner…would help them make money?
I suppose that there are a few that spam bomb daily could be making some money.
You know what? Forget that.
I’m willing to bet those numbers are very low.

A lot of the spam comes from automated bot programs, which are called spam-bots. Automated content that post on forums and blogs and are also designed to steal email addresses.
You can spot these “spam robot automated comments” that are spun by a program as soon as you read them.
