    If you leave comments on without moderation, you will get Comment Spam.

    These are actually not from humans but computer bots that are fast and literally read the basics of millions of ip addresses almost simultaneously and are run by hacks to then load your site with spam or worse, register, and if allowed, post.

    Moderating comments is key.
