    Could Be An auto Poster most auto posters put comments from yahoo answers or youtube videos. If it is not a auto poster try enabling the built in spam trapper

    Did you approve a prior comment from the same person(s)? May be you have checked the setting in "settings - Discussion" that says "Comment author must have a previously approved comment "...

    Otherwise, you have been hacked.

    these are the links. no i did not approve comments from whoever that guy is. i don't approve comments to my blog as it's all new.

    It's really a weird comment. so i don't think it's a serious problem. or is it?

    any suggestions?

    If you are on a shared host maybe it was hacked.

    Just watch for it and see if it continues.

    Delete the file wp-comments-post.php from your blog. This prevents any external commenting at once. Better than the best anti-spam plugin :D

    This is true! I do this all the time with sites I don't want comments on. Even the best spam/config options can't beat this.
