English, Please

A Blognote:

Two or three people have regularly been leaving comments to posts in what looks to me like Chinese.  I thought for a while I should let this pass, but the more I think about it, the more uneasy I grow.  I have no idea whether these are genuine comments or whether they say something like, 'Buy Your Viagra Here' or worse. 

Conclusion:  If you can read this blog in English, you can reply in English. 

Request:  Please do so, or else use some other language I can decipher (German, French, Greek, and possibly Spanish). 

Otherwise I am going to to put the comments on moderated status, something I have greatly desired to avoid.

Thank you very much.

I believe those are spam, Anastasia. They're making their way around blogger. You should filter them.

They are the reason I went to moderated comments.

Definitely spam. If you mouse over the line of periods in those commonts, you'll see they all link to websites. Most of the websites have just numbers as their addresses, but those that have words suggest you and your readers would not wish to click on them.

I ignore anything I can't read, but I agree with all the above comments.
