    On site I decided I didn't want comments and turned them off.
    I then edited all template files with comment code in them and took them out.
    I flipped through my site and nothing comes up to post, edit or read comments, GREAT! or so I thought.
    I go to the administrative back end and notice I have NEW comments held in moderation!
    What gives?

    Some spammers have found ways to access comments.php directly. If that's a problem for you, simply comments.php from your theme.

    DOH! I didn't think of that! Thanks!
