Thank goodness Blogger has several built-in measures for dealing with comment spam and other associated dastardly behaviour, even when comments are not moderated. However, these comments, mostly by anonymous persons, still land up in my inbox and I have to manually go check whether Blogger has indeed dumped the message into the spam folder, or not. It can become quite a tedious task, and the bigger the blog gets the more tedious it becomes.
Here are a few examples of recent comments received:

The following comment was not detected as spam by Blogger. It was posted on “South Africa is not Azania!”
"The bames if towns and streets are being changed in mzantsi and I agree it is good can u tell us what black historians say than the romans I m sure that would ve fair to us.G uMosia wasemthanjeni"
I actually went to the trouble of replying to this anonymous commentator and interpreted what he/she was trying to say as follows:
“The names of towns and streets are being changed in Mzantsi (a Xhosa word which basically means “South”) and I agree that it is a good thing (???) Can you tell us what black historians say about the Romans? I’m sure many of us would appreciate it.” ('us' presumably meaning Black Africans or people of African descent)” – Tia Mysoa interpretation.There’s a quiet a lot of other gibberish-talk in the comment section of that specific post and other places on this blog as well which I haven’t even bothered responding to. The comments are left there for a reason: … To show the world the inner workings of the modern savage mind, their arrogance, and their ignorance.
