Spam

I've noticed a lot of spam blogs and illigitimate posts, I try to give each of my readers a nice post back. While most of my readers and commenters are geniune and interesting - remember that if you have nothing worth reading, chances are I'll post something not worth reading on that post.

I put alot of time into my blog, and so do many other people. Please keep up with good content, I'm always looking for something fresh to read, thanks!

  1. Agreed 100%. "Nice post" is waste of space. If you just want to say hi, then say hi, lol.

  2. Agreed also. My content for the most part is fairly boring, but alas, that is only because at this time I am leading a boring life :)

  3. Gotcha Man. You are one of only a handful that post real comments, it seems. So ya, let's keep it real!

  4. *sigh*

    i notice it too, and its a damn shame. I always read what people have too say and follow up with relevant comments...its only common sense.

  5. To be honest I thought you were one of those spam blogs because your comment seemed a bit too generic. My apologies for thinking that way :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. sorry I can be short sometimes, if I find something remotely interesting 99.99% of the time I will put up a decent comment =D

  7. / agree end up deleting more comments on my blog than get posted

  8. I have noticed the same thing. I usually just delete them and don't bother with checking out their blog if its just a copy and paste bullshit comment.

    Google will eventually shut down spammers. It doesn't take them very long to catch on.

  9. Yeah, I hate when people say stuff like "Something to think about" and the post might just be an update saying "I'm sick today."

    Keep up the good work!

  10. I try to make posts are are relevent to the article but sometimes It's so hard to think of something to say!

    But I know the posts in which you're referring to.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks for the effort. It's true, more people need to put more effort in their comments!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I agree, but there are still people out there who have legit blogs :D

    ReplyDelete
  13. Nice post, bro! :P

    But yea, it isn't good when you put a lot of work in your blog just to get bunch of copy-pasted responses like "nice post". .-.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Something to think about. Keep up the good work! Check out my blog too!



    jk :3 I totally agree that this spam needs to stop. I usually end up deleting the spam comments on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I couldn't agree more. I'm so tired of reading stuff like "Great post" or "cool story bro"! It's so much more rewarding to read comments that people actually put some thought into rather than just copy and pasting the same comment over and over again!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, it does bug me when someone comments on one of my posts with a response that doesn't really apply. I hope everyone has enjoyed my videos so far.

  17. Welcome to the internet good sir. The spam you speak of is ironically the entire concept of adsense. Spamming the internet.

    Nobody minds doing the spamming, but nobody wants the spam themselves.

    MIND = BLOWN.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Absolutely right -- there needs to be effort and not just copy/pasting articles from other sites.

    ReplyDelete
  19. that's a unique perspective on it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. "Nobody minds doing the spamming, but nobody wants the spam themselves."

    this is what's really happening. from day one, i'm trying at least not to make any spam comments and really try to understand everyone's post but lately i'm getting tired. those blog who regulates post, delete your post just because it doesn't suit them even if they're not spam, are the one who leaves a copypasta comments.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks! You're absolutely right. There are way to many people on here that post generic one line comments that are vague enough to apply to everything.

    ReplyDelete
  22. true. its not worth reading if they didnt think it was worth writing

    ReplyDelete
  23. i too have gotten those... and ill post bakc with something relevant and then in quotes what they spammed everyone with lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. nice post! =D

    haha... jkjk
    I have nothing against those kind of posts.. but it's nice to have some geniune comments once in a while :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've been noticing this a lot as well! I use the Random Blog feature a lot, and it seems like every other one is total garbage :[

    ReplyDelete
  26. You should all check my blog out....it actually has REAL info on mushrooms

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm hoping you know me by now, mike. Lol. I'm the 2k music dude.

    Alex isn't lying about his shroom blog, dude. My eyes are glued to it as an amateur mycologist.

    Rising tide lifts all boats, gents!

    ReplyDelete
  28. totally agree. thanks for putting this out there. time for me to update my blog soon, methinks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I agree man...its getting quite annoying some of the spam.

    ReplyDelete
  30. lol
    my comment just got deleted

    ReplyDelete
  31. really wish people would spend at least a little more time on their blogs. It doesn't take a lot of time out of your day and a lot of people are genuinely interested in what you have to say.

  33. Mike, good sir, check this out: Wednesday Link Roundup

    I know I should have asked before doing something like this just in case, but it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission, lol. I'm trying to expose blogs from within this circle to some of my legitimate traffic so that we can grow all our readerships. It's a community thing, and I dig your blogs.

    If you dig this, maybe return the favor with a link roundup of your own? Give a shout to a few blogs? Lol.

    Keep up the good work, man.

  34. I have had to delete a few comments because they're obviously either bots or just really stupid people. If you're going to pretend to be interested in what I like, at least do it well amirite?

    ReplyDelete
  35. i'm OK with non sequitur responses, but they need to be entertaining. i think i'm able to accomplish this on my end.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I feel ya, at least make it related ya know?

    ReplyDelete
  37. I see this a lot and it is pretty annoying. I just skim by those posts now.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Even when I really don't have the energy to make an *original* post, I at least try to put up content from other sources that's *interesting*. I also try to leave comments that are either relevant, or at least amusing. Because AH DON'T LAHK SPAM!

    ReplyDelete
  39. TBH 99% of blogs are garbage, or $$ scams.
    but there are a few out there that do have interesting contenet, im just starting up mine now :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. conversely, if you make a shitty post, ill leave a shitty reply :) hope you dont think my blog is spam...its not

    ReplyDelete
  41. I agree with you, mate. I think it looks pretty suspicious a post with 80% of spam comments. I've targeted the most spammer user: Razortek, and there's also called Fuuuuuu (And this guy has a lot of good commments in his blog, meanwhile he just copy and paste his same comment to all the blogs where he comment). I don't really complain to much, I mean "Whatever" but, perhaps just a little much effort would be good for all of us.

    ReplyDelete
  42. google is good at figuring this stuff out, but i do think you have to post the comments for them to catch on? idk, but yes; there are a lot of spammers, and it sucks :|

    ReplyDelete
  43. I agree...its really annoying when people do that!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I totally know what you mean! I have two blogs and it usually takes me forever to write the post each day for them, but I love to do it! And I love to read peoples blogs who love to do the same!So I am following!

    ReplyDelete
  45. 100% agree nothing pisses me off more than when people post random comments on my reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know how I feel on this bro, you read it on my blog. Fucking sucks

    ReplyDelete
  47. YEah.. I'm getting tired of these posts that say, "supportin!" or "following!"

    Really getting old...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Look at the post above me. Pathetic. That's the kind of crap that annoys me. Seriously, can't people put ANY thought into their comments?

    ReplyDelete
  49. ^--- agree with ownage.

    Even if you skim a post, and add a coherent thought that has *something* to do with the subject, you read enough to get some context.

    For my part, when I get an awesome comment, I give props where they're due.
