Reader "comments" on your blog can be spam

When you blog, you appreciate comments from readers. However, some comments may have alternate motives. Please see this comment below that I received. This is a generic comment, and is spam. These are sent out to millions of blogs. Sometimes, people are hired for pennies to tailor these comments and submit them individually to each blog.
These people are trying to embed links on my blog site. The link this person is seeking to embed is "It Solution", which is a hyperlink in his post. The person wants this because it can help the person's own site rank in a Google search for "It Search".
As such, I do not allow these comments on my blog.
