    Yes but a lot of people do it manually but still have lots of blog comments from forum profile and posts but with manual methods. I'm talking about lots of links. So how can u tell if they did it manually or used tools

    Well lots of links in short period of time -> usually automated.
    I don't have xrumer yet but for SB if the blogcomment is on a page where you have to register first, theres a good chance it was made manually as SB can't make blog accounts.

    And also if the names and comments are spinned or changed frequently, thats another sign of SB.

    I do it by hand and I always change the anchor text because that way it looks more natural. Every comment I write is completely different because I actually read the blog comments and make relevant comments. Sometimes I even really get into it and it becomes a mini-novel/paragraphs. Most people who do it manually ALSO vary anchor text and every comment is completely different since we actually take the time to skim through and sometimes read every blog post we comment on.
