Confusing Comment

I just rejected a comment, submitted twice, about a book by someone named Steve Harvey. The comment was very long and included links and I didn't think it was appropriate for posting, as it was long enough to be a blog entry. However, there was mention of the author using the title of another book. To be honest, I didn't read the whole comment, so don't know what the actual complaint is, but for the record, book titles are not subject to copyright protection. Which is why there are so many books with the same titles, which can drive librarians crazy when patrons ask for a book by title and the title is common, but they know nothing about the contents nor do they know the author and there are 3-5 different books with the title.
