I do get a number of comments on my personal blog, but no where near as many as I get SPAM comments. In fact at the moment I have over 500 comments caught by the Akismet spam filter in the last two weeks.
Sometimes the SPAM gets through, but then needs to be approved / rejected as the comments are all moderated. Most SPAM that gets that far is then obvious as it normally just repeats words from the original post and includes a link to some website which is the reason they are sending the SPAM to get a link back to their website.
I did have one recently that appears to me to be a sales pitch, but doesn't look like the usual spam. To give them the benefit of the doubt I've approved the comment (as I don't want to appear to be blocking anyone that disagrees with my opinion), but I am not convinced that this is a genuine testimonial.
