Crazy comments

I keep getting these spam comments on my blog, some of them obviously written by someone whose first language is not English, if he or she has a first language. Some are in bad French or bad German, or some non-European language I don't recognize.

They are not good or bad, they are essentially pointless, and I wonder why anyone would waste their time and effort to send them. Much better to remain silent.

I was told these are spambots; I get tons of non-nonsensical spam like that, in bad Russian, English and German (!)- don't pay attention and just carfpet-bomb the whole lot.

Is there anything we can do to prevent them from wasting our time?

And more to the point, what is the point of them to the originator?
