Relevance: It's a Beautiful Thing

I know we can't control the idiots, but I'd encourage all bloggers to delete comments that have NOTHING to do with your post. These neo-spammers take the time to get past your word verification thingy, and yet they still give you their generic pasted bullshit like:

"Nice blog. I really like it. Please visit my blog."

I understand that one of the ways to drive traffic to your site is to comment on other blogs, but you can't treat other blogs as bulletin boards for your own blog or website. Say something that actually pertains to the post or contributes in some way to the conversation. Quit being stupid, please.

  • JP: I blogged about that the other day. It is pretty amazing - I've gotten posts for actual products- I wonder if there's some sort of program now that lets spammers get past the password protect thing.

    I'm guessing the bloggers who spam you like that are in on those "get-rich-quick-from-blogging" schemes where they get a few shekels per hit and thus desperately need the traffic.
