I've been getting a lot of comments submitted for recent (and not so recent) posts over the last few weeks, and I'm frankly a little puzzled!

The confusion comes because I've gone from getting a comment once in a blue moon to suddenly receiving loads of anonymous comments. They're all very affirmative but in a vague way which never engages with the content:-
"Fantastic website. A lot of useful information here."
"I every time spent my half an hour to read this website's posts everyday along with a mug of coffee."
As a quick look at my blog history will show, my posting frequency really doesn't support daily visits. But, apart from that, my last post, Like Jesus, has attracted 44 comments, none of which mention Jesus, beatitudes, nor anything else in that post's Labels list. So what is going on?

My first thought was 'spam', of course. But I don't see what benefit anyone can get out of an anonymous comment with no links in (there has been definite spam as well, of course, but that gets purged before comments are published).

My second thought is that there might be someone who has posted a comment with the genuine intention of engaging with me and with the article's content, but has just been a little sideways about it. I would be disappointed if I failed to respond to such.

So, a couple of requests: firstly, does anyone have any idea what the cause of all these vague and anonymous posts might be?

Secondly, if you do want to engage with me, please give a name and mention something in the post's content so I know you are a human being not some mysterious bot. I realise Blogger/Blogspot doesn't have the friendliest commenting system around, but please use your comment to let me know you are a real person and I'll do my best to answer any questions or respond to any comments.

In the meantime, do have a great week.

Grace and peace,
