    I have been receiving a lot of blog spam on my blog recently which I normally just remove the website address if the comment is relatively coherent. However, all the spam posts recently have been quoting www.bing.com as the website address rather than the usual shortners or viagra based websites.

    Any thoughts/ideas?

    They test first for approval. ;)
    If you approve the comments, they will come back with viagra.

    OP, unless you interact with your visitors using the comment section, you would probably be best served closing comments on your blog. Almost nothing good can come from it being open as Scrape Box users are going to find it and spam it.

    I close comments on every site I own as soon as I set the sites up.
