RANT – Comment SPAM!!!

June 8, 2013 Comments off

ok … this is my rant.

Lately I’ve been approving some comments that seem decent in structure or offer kind words , but only because they fit the posts their commenting on.  But lately with 169+ SPAM in less than 24hrs I’ve had it.

NOTE: Anyone that have posted since Wednesday this first week of June – its been auto deleted, I’m not restoring so if you’re comment was legit I apologize.

Going forward: Please note this is a personal blog that is created, and content entered by 1 person alone, me! Not a team, not a company, not a group of people, just me!

Future Comments on my blog:

1. You don’t need to comment in order to link back to my blog!! trackback is enabled by default as I’m sharing facts and my opinion and sourcing the facts as best I can. If I’m asked by the content originator and holder to remove it I will respect that and promptly will. Should you comment just to link back, it’ll be flagged automatically as spam and will be deleted – it wont even be read.

2. Commenting. Please post comments (for or against, critical or praise) relevant to the blog entry or the site in general. If not I’ll suspect you’re a bot and the comment will auto be flagged as spam and deleted without being read, period! I cannot stand someone stating “this is a great post, how long have you been blogging for? I’d like to learn how you got your content and I’ve learned a lot” all for a post that shows a graph or picture and nothing else. Arrrgh, brainless!

3. Site Loading issues. I understand not all browser are created equal but in 2013 anyone using the internet on any device should at LEAST be able to troubleshoot their own browser and know how to use it before suggesting its my site which is hosted by WordPress.com.

This blog is hosted by WordPress.com and if it works on IEv7/8/9/10, iOS Safari Mobile (since iOS4), BB6/7.1/10, Chrome/Safari or FireFox (just about any browser that runs webkit/khtml) is supported. BlackBerry, and a few other major companies host multiple sites on WordPress and I don’t use custom HMTL/CSS/Javascript code … so check your browser issues on multiple platforms – I won’t be changing my layout until you can clearly show solid and proper troubleshooting. Without that posts will be spammed automatically and deleted.

Hello there, I believe your blog may be having web browser compatibility problems. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful blog!

^ perfect example of what I’m talking about – no troubleshooting.

4. Please place your name, first name, fake first name, knick name I don’t care but a name, not a website as a name. There is a separate entry for your website … if its sex related I’ll delete the link, as some people at work read my blog and may block them due to web filtering./

Try to be considerate … all posts of any nature are recognized as either Spam or in Pending state for review. If in Pending I’ll review it and most likely will not edit it unless its vulgar, or I cannot understand the language – and I’ll use google translate to place under your original comment in case I reply. I respect all languages and will not be prejudice against them.

Phew … now the rant and venting is over. Time to sleep and new ideas for tomorrow or this week 😀
