In addition, there are spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. This kind of things may considerably undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly.
