    I get some comments by mail, and some others by spam. The spam comments, have no icons or avatars. Are there real people? Just wondering, thank you.

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

    99% of the time, spam comments are left by automated bots.

    Some times they’re left by real people, but they’re still probably spam.

    Oh okay thanks! Because sometimes, I get these spam comments with weird names and the same comments twice!

    You’re welcome!

    Yeah, duplicate comments are quite common when dealing with spam.

    What I’m experiencing is human generated spam. The spam consists of pgrases from my own comments made in response to my commenters on blog posts, and phrases from my commenters comments which is simply copied and pasted and submitted as comments.

    That’s actually still a bot. :)

    They get smarter every year unfortunately.
