Ok guys, I need your help!
On the magazine that I own and edit, The Angels Weekly, I get all kinds of spam and comments that I don't think are comments, and I am confused about them?? Can anyone help me sort them out?
The platform for the magazine is wordpress, which I am not great with, and a lot of the comments that are pending moderation, aren't really comments, but it looks like someone stole the article and reprinted some of it with a link to our page? When I click on the url of the user, it brings me to a page, that sometimes does and sometimes doesn't have anything to do with what the article in question is about? But there is a portion of the article, on someone else's page, with a "read more" that takes you back to our magazine?? I am so confused??
Are they stealing our content?? Or just using it for filler?? Should I be approving these to get links that Google likes?? Or would approving them be bad?? I just don't know?? Help me please!!
So, today I go to my comment section, and there are 2 Twitter Trackbacks?? What the heck is that?? Can anyone help me out?? I will copy and paste below for you:

See what I mean?? This is our article, but from months ago?? This is our page url, after the site name of Topsy.
What is this, and should I be approving them?? I am confused about these and pingbacks too.
I'm really hoping that someone can shed some light on this for me.
Thanks a bunch!!
