Weird comments

Ok...so my client is using Blog Engine...great stuff.

Having a strange problem. The links on each comment seems really random. Normally I would suspect spam, but the comments themselves seem to be legit. 

You can see what I am talking about here: http://www.beactivekids.org/BAKBlog/post/The-End-of-SummerThe-Start-of-Something-New.aspx#comment

 

Any ideas?

Thanks,

David

Looks like spam to me(there are some signs like: that they do not use people names(keyword + link = bliss), then they link you to "dubious" web sites that try to sell something, bad english may come in combination with any of these, etc.).
There are some manual spammers who read your blog posts, and then attempt to add some "useful/related" comments.
Once you get such "customers", they usually "try" to do their "job" on daily/weekly bases.
