There are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. Such things could considerably undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly.
