Should I approve the non-spammy looking comments, or will that hurt my ranking in google?
I would not approve them but if you want to just delete the link they added.
I definitely wouldn't. Why share your link juice just for some shitty generic bot generated comment? You could also potentially include yourself in a bad neighbourhood by linking to some shitty spam site.
If your site is a real site, you should only approve real comments, and if it's a spam site, you shouldn't bother approving any comments at all.
You can actually turn this around in your favour. Instead of deleting the links, I tend to change them to point to internal pages of my site and approve them afterwards. Gives a somewhat stronger internal linking structure.
Don't approve them with the original backlinks in place though, no point sharing the linkjuice.
I dont known what to do with the links... listen to the guys who tell you what to do... but think about the content: doesn't delete it at all. Googlebot LOVE more content found on a page every visit.
More content = more long tail.
