    I've been receiving a lot of SPAM on my whitehat blog. (Guess who's it from? Tee hee... :D )

    Some of the comment is really good that if Askismet does not flag it as SPAM I will think it's a real person. (Good job there guys (Y) )

    So I do you guys some favor and un-marked it as SPAM.

    But sorry, I still have to not let the SPAM take over my blog.

    I edit the name to become legit, for example "targetted keyword" into "Timothy" or "high paying keyword" into "Hellen".
    Then delete the emails, and the url.

    Now, let's get to the question.

    Does it hurt my blog after I approve this comments?

    I do this. I take some comments and edit them to make them into questions regarding a post or a topic. Which I can then answer with a good reply, this can help you get some traffic for longtails. I rank for certain longtails on the basis of the content I essentially created in the comments section.

    How about the emails and links?
    Did you remove them?

    When people spam my blog I just string search their comment, and voila... you find lots of auto approve blogs which they've also hit. lol.

    I remove the link and change the email. In addition I will change the name to a random first name.

    x review comments

    It does well compared to a lot of other products, but not as well as G.
