    Hello!
    I have about 50 autoblogs, just started.
    I get allready around 50-100 "spam" comments / day.

    All blogs are set to NOT auto publish comments.

    So question, if I close my comments on these blogs will that hurt my blogs in anyway?

    It's not so much that it will hurt your blogs but my thinking is, that *real blogs* get comments, so I'm sensible with the comments. At the end of the the day we've all done it, give a little back.

    If the comment is sensible and "adds something" I allow it. If it's gibberish or blatant spam, I bin it. Takes me a 30mins in a morning to go through mine saying yes or no. As the vast majority are plain useless gibberish.

    If you're using WP, A k i s m e t (which is included in most cases), work really well supressing spam comments...save alot of time.

    Another solution is to remove wordpress footprints:
    remove "Powered by wordpress" (footer.php)
    also, change all the text labels that next to the comment box (comment.php)
