    Lately I am getting thousands of these comments on my blogs.

    None of the links actually works.

    I get a lot of those too. It seems like a great deal of them have .ru email addresses associated with them. xrumer perhaps?

    Not sure what the point is either. I have this weird feeling they're being sent out with some sort of malicious intent behind them. Why would anyone bother doing that otherwise?

    Yes I am getting lots of these everyday, I just delete them as soon as they come in which is getting on my nerves.

    I would not mind if the comments were good and related to the blog content.

    Its a bait test ... if these are auto-approved, then when the link-checker runs later (a day or two) and finds that exact link...the REAL spam comments flood in
