It doesn't "help". It "destroys".

How would you know? In fact, I sometimes wonder how you get PageRank for
your sites. Care to share? I am not implying anything, but comment spammers
are either located in remote and exotic havens or have sites whose content
and existence have no sentimental value to its webmaster.
