A Reminder

This is a reminder about something I wrote about last year.

IF YOU LEAVE A COMMENT ON ANY OF MY POSTS THAT IS A LINK TO SOMETHING YOU ARE SELLING, OR SIMPLY A LINK TO YOUR OWN BLOG, THEN IT WILL BE MARKED AS SPAM, BEFORE BEING DELETED.

I WILL NEVER APPROVE SUCH A COMMENT, AND AFTER A WHILE WORDPRESS WILL MARK EVERY COMMENT YOU TRY TO LEAVE ON ANY BLOG AS SPAM.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, SO PLEASE STOP DOING THIS ON MY BLOG.
IF IT CONTINUES, YOU WILL BE ‘NAMED AND SHAMED’, BELIEVE ME.

IF YOU WANT TO COMMENT, READ THE POST, AND LEAVE A COMMENT THAT IS RELEVANT.

A LINK TO YOUR BUSINESS BLOG DOES NOT QUALIFY AS THAT.

      1. Something strange going on her it won’t let me like your comment. No, I get the occasional spam message but it is always filtered out. No links either I guess that’s because no one wants to be my friend sob sob. Also I’ve not blogged much this year.

    1. WP is very good at catching Spam comments with many links, and the same keywords, I agree. But these ‘one-link’ comments by people who have WP blogs are slipping through. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

  1. I know, Pete. For whatever reason–yikes–I get a lot of spam from obviously mentally ill people. Sad…That, and spam telling me where I can hook up with a prostitute, should I so desire. I don’t think too much of it except, “yuck” and,”that’s sad.” Fortunately my spam folder catches most of it. Either way, it’s delete, delete, delete…

    1. I still get around 12 ‘regular’ Spam comments a day, Pam. Mostly selling medicines, or offering to make my blog more popular. But this person’s ‘comments’ keep getting through, despite me spamming every single one for over a week now. I hope he takes heed, but I fear he won’t.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Pete, I think I’ve shared this with you before, but I routinely get dozens of spam emails every day, most from email with “car repair” in the title! Next week I will be sharing a collection of the funniest ones – yes, some are funny in just how awful – and awfully written – they are…the downside of social media to be sure!
