Strange Unsolicited Comment

Because of this strange comment I got (see the next entry) I am going to preview comments before they get posted.

People with blogging experience - is this something that happens on a regular basis and is it normal? Should I be concerned about this comment? Am I overreacting by previewing comments before they're posted?

Thanks.

I have never gotten anything like that and If I did I think I would do the same thing your doing.
Regardless of his babel of why he is doing it. IT's A SPAM.

Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that I got a scary, weird comment yesterday too. Not the same as yours but really scary and racist and stuff. I think its just comment spam. I deleted it and I set my comments on moderate for a while too. Maybe it's the sign of a popular blog? Or maybe just random. You are not alone though...it happens on occassion. Maybe the wierdos are just hitting all the bead blogs lately?!?

I saw that comment. My guess is he just sends one to any blog he sees.It looked like a form letter. Good idea to preview, probably. Save us all from being creeped out!

Thanks for your comments! I was creeped out by it and when I went to his site it was kinda cool, but seemed to be anti-American...

I've never seen this comment before... This is rare, but it happens. Remember, you always have the option to delete any comments like this. (Just click the little trash can next to the comment.)

I have received inappropriate spam on my tagboard before, but instead of doing away with the tagborad, I just delete the message...

Hope this helps...:)

Hello, just stumbling around beading blogs. I looked at that page woo very odd dude. I'm glad you added a filter. Your work is very nice. I'm sorry to see you had "one of those things happen"
