The language polls area of our site allows comments and they are displayed immediately without moderation. This does mean that we get some comments that are nonsensical or just plain rude. Having made it impossible to post links, we no longer get spam comments, but we do occasionally get someone who thinks that is funny to type random letters or rude words in the comments. We can check the list of latest comments and delete any nonsense we get.
We have recently had a spate of comments in our Polls section which contain lists of URLs to gambling sites, offers for herbal viagra, dodgy diet pills and the rest of the rubbish people keep finding in their inboxes. We would like to apologise for this. When this started happening to our Weblogs, we were able to buy software that meant that any comment had to be approved, which guaranteed that such posts were deleted before they appeared onsite.
