Allowing comments on your WordPress website is a great way to boost interactions between yourself and your loyal readers.
In fact, comments provide you the opportunity to engage directly with those who are reading your content and can provide some great insight into what type of content readers like, pain points your readers have, and things your readers would like to see more of.
However, your website’s comments can get out of control if not managed properly.

If you fail to moderate your site’s comments, you run the risk of your comment section being overrun by spam, which looks unprofessional and can turn even the most loyal readers away from not only commenting on your posts, but also reading your content.
In addition, spam comments with malicious links in them will harm the user experience if a reader clicks on them thinking there is something useful behind the links, only to find out they have been redirected to an unsavory website.
