Spam Alert - One of the problems of Blogging

Slightly controversial but, I thought this might interest some!  One of the problems of writing a blog is that you can get caught in the radar of the Spammers!  One of the ways people try to get more people to read their blogs and get traffic is to write a comment on a blog and ask for the reader to visit their website.  The English in question is usually 'very interesting' and I thought it might be fun to show some of the many  comments we have received.  Spot the translation errors! ;-)  As a language school, the English used here is very interesting to look at.

Update note:  A further update - if you find any of these posted in your comments - do copy and paste a section of it to google  - you'll be amazed at how many of them have just been plastered on hundreds and hundreds of sites.  So far the most I counted was the same comment on 250 other blogs - I then lost interest - but have since tended to do that as a check if I am at all suspicious.
