The website administrators also have access to this information and can modify it as needed.

It’s important to note that automated spam detection services are used by many websites to prevent unwanted comments and protect users from malicious content. These services use various algorithms and techniques to identify spam comments, such as analyzing the content of the comment, checking the IP address of the commenter, and looking for patterns in the comment history.
