The odd comment or two...

The comments that certain people leave are very odd don't you think. I allow 'anonymous' commentators to leave comments if they wish but find it strange that they do so without leaving a name of some kind. If you are rude or try to link your comment to an inappropriate web site (or any commercial web site for that matter) you won't be published.
In case anyone out there in blog land doesn't yet realise, ALL comments are moderated.

I guess I am lucky in that if I receive a few comments each day I am doing well. I have no idea how those with huge followers manage, maybe they don't print them either. I quite like the way Froog's deals with hers. I try to be polite as possible in my response if I am going to print them.

Some end up in Spam. Had a corker a few days ago, trying to educate me in the use of the English language - I just deleted it because it was an attempt to link to a commercial web site. Their own use of grammar however, was quite odd, so maybe it was a case of the pot calling the kettle black!

At times, followers comments end up in Spam. Fran, in particular ends up there. Don't know why. I keep telling it that the commentator is not sending spam. Maybe the programme will learn one day. Sorry Fran.

Most of the time, as I am sure you have all found out, some people obviously can't go through the day without the need to have a dig.

I repeat, ALL comments are moderated and if you have a blog that is receiving such sad comments, I suggest you change your comments to moderated only.

  1. I am quite lucky, the spam ones are rare and the nasty or disparaging ones are few and far between. It is funny isn't it though, how some people seem to feel the need to show how much they hate what you are writing (anonymously usually) instead of just clicking the close button. It says something about them i think.

  3. That is what the delete/spam button is for...!

    I can't understand people leaving hateful comments- why don't they just leave the blog and go elsewhere?

  4. No hard feelings, I am sure there are some who wish they could dump me in the trash at times!!!! Just a thought, let me know if this ends up in the spam folder, I am typing it at work, so that could be the reason xxx
