actually, you forgot one more type of comment...the spam ones where they either just post some random link, or else they try to add in some type of somewhat related comment, but sneak in a random link. =(

@ anonymous: ...just making an observation, although i do think anonymity where free speech is concerned is a double-edged sword; while it tends to make people feel more comfortable in expressing an honest view, it also gives evil a place to hide (not to be too melodramatic about it, but i think that much of life tends to boil down to doing a positive thing or a negative thing)...however, insofar as online commenting, i think it should stay anonymous; there are some things i think a society must learn to mature into while doing it (as opposed to legislating against it)...

Hmm. It looks like you've got the ratios about right. Are you suggesting that we do something about it? Anonymous speech no doubt creates hassles for web site moderators, but I for one think it is pretty important to be able to be anonymous, both online and in real life.
