One of the main drawbacks of having a fairly popular blog (that’s according to Google, not me) aside from getting comment spam is having troll spams. Troll spams are those who checks out your blog for high comment traffic then add self-serving comments promoting their own blogs, forums or website in the hope that traffic would precipitate down to their end.
Comments are good. In fact, I love comments. But if you leave a comment just to promote your blog or forum or website, expect that I will edit them or delete them. It’s my blog and I can do so whatever I wish of it.
Duncan of Blog Herald quoted Paul Short of BlogLogic about his Comment Policy:
â€œIâ€™m a complete and utter bastard, this is my freakin blog and before you comment you agree that I have the right to zap anything I feel is inappropriate, because you do not have the right to take me down by posting illegal stuff, spam, or any other junk in my comments. Plus, if youâ€™re a comment spammer and I ever meet you in person, Iâ€™ll bitch-slap you up side the head with a rubber surgical glove filled with dog poop until the inevitable happens.â€
So, to those who’ve been trolling my blog, please don’t waste my bandwidth with yet another of your self-promoting comments. We don’t need them here. I’m sorry if my blog gets much more visitors or comment posts than your forum or website. I worked hard for it and I am not going to give you a free ride.
