Spam comments OK?

  1. Hi there. I've had a few comments go to the spam folder. Some (from strangers) actually appear to be relevant/OK. How does the WP software decide what is Spam? Is there any harm in me approving comments WP allocates to the Spam folder? A couple of comments end in quotations; ie: "I like this blog very much so much excellent information. “Our national flower is the concrete cloverleaf.” by Lewis Mumford." Is this an indicator of Spam? Many thanks!

    The blog I need help with is oneequalstwo.wordpress.com.

  2. Thanks Mark. I'm new to this. *blush* Just checked some of the links to URLs within the comments - nasty stuff! Such a bummer. I thought I had new fans : (

    @oneequalstwo: Akismet is a great feature. To give you an idea: in my main blog, Akismet has caught around 43,000 comments so far; of all these comments, only five weren't actually spam.

  4. Incredible! Thanks guys.
