    I get excited to see a new comment but then realize its just some letters and numbers jumbled together, Have I been haved or is it just spam, it doesnt happen a lot my once or twice a month. The comments are all different and I delete them straight away.
    Its getting a bit boring now so if anyknows many thanks.

    could be spam 'bots
    or invalid trackback/pingbacks

    install a couple of plugins and it will stop all illegitimate activity
