Google has said following Panda that one of the factors they're looking at is the quality of the pages -- e.g. pages full of wrong spellings, etc.

My blog is currently being inundated by low quality comments (receiving 50+ in an hour) -- links being dropped are Google/Yahoo/Bing, but the thing common to them is the wrong spelling in every single one. Here are examples:

- Thatís way more clever than I was epxecting. Thanks!
- Great tkhinnig! That really breaks the mold!
- Home run! Great sulgngig with that answer!

I edit the comments to remove any URL drops. But this time, I have to correct the spellings as well.

Is this a new way to nail your competitors in the SERPs? I'm just wondering because of the huge volume of comments my blog is suddenly getting - highly unusual and never happened before
