It's A Gift

In a previous post, I let the people who have so kindly left me so many spammy comments know what I thought about them. Now I think I probably should address a few specific questions I’ve been asked. One person suggested that I post my “policy” on comments, so here are my thoughts.

I fully realize that there are many people who simply look for “Do Follow” sites in order to leave links to their respective businesses. What you need to realize is although I have chosen to make this site “Do Follow”, I also moderate it before any comment is published!

If you leave a link to a site that sells pornography or drugs — you have the same chances as that “snowball in hell”. If you leave a comment in a language other than English, I’m sorry, but if I can’t read it, I’m not going to post it.

If you really want to find my rss feed, it’s pretty easy, just go to RSS Entries in the right-hand column. Those who have asked about the theme only need search through WordPress themes to find it. I think they call it “Soft Green”.

For those of you who want to sell me the latest SEO tool or information, thanks, but none of that will help in the slightest until and unless, I manage to force myself to blog on a regular basis.

Finally, if you really want to leave a comment, try actually reading the post that you are supposedly commenting on first. I will publish only relevant comments.

  1. Do you people have a facebook fan page? I seemed for one on twitter but could not discover one, I would love to turn out to be a fan!

  3. My sis advised me about your web site and the way great it is. She’s right, I’m really impressed with the writing and slick design. It appears to me you’re simply scratching the surface in terms of what you possibly can accomplish, however you’re off to an ideal begin!

  4. Author not exactly have to be the first and second paragraph

  5. If I’m interpreting this right, I think that you’re saying that you’re not a spammer. I’ve allowed this comment, but it is an exception to the rule. Normally I will not allow a post with a link to a site that’s in a language I can’t read. The reason for this is two-fold: first, I don’t want to accidentally lead my visitors into a malicious or hard-core porn site without their knowledge, second, since my blog is in English, I expect mostly English speaking visitors, most of whom will also not be able to read the material on the other end of the link.

  6. Very interesting post. Your own web site is swiftly turning out to be certainly one of my favorites.

  23. Nah, you should have read some of the comments I deleted (and the websites they lead to were even worse!)

  24. Hello

    interresting, post here
    keep update

  25. I`m reading your article that I found on msn and it makes me think that there are still a few people on the web that there are passionate about their work. Good job with your blog

  26. As I website possessor I believe the content here is very superb , regards for your efforts.

  27. Thank for amazing article! I genuinely liked reading it. I will make sure to bookmark your blog and will definitely return at a later time. Carry on great work. Have a great day.

  28. Not much of reader but your article kept me interested enough to finish

  29. Thanks friend for the share

  30. I appreciate the comments on this blog, it definitely gives it that community sense!

  31. I’d have to say that it’s an awfully self-absorbed “community” then, as the comments never boil down to anything but “I want links”.

  32. Hi! I discovered your website accidentally this morning, but am really pleased which i did! Its not only entertaining, but also straightforward to make use of compared with lots that Ive viewed!

  33. This post has some strange comments, people have to be using SCRAPEBOXLIST.COM

  34. No kidding! At least 99% of the comments left on this blog have obviously been written by ‘bots.

  36. First, a word of warning to anyone who follows the link above — it’s one of those sites that won’t let you just click the “back” button to return. Having to re-enter my site and start over on page 1 certainly pissed me off, but I decided to approve the comment anyhow.

    Since I was in the middle of going through 30 pages consisting of over 99% spam comments left by ‘bots, it certainly sounded interesting. I probably would have bought it if it had been at about half the actual price and just taken my chances. I have no idea whether it actually works or not. If it does, it would fill a real need!
