Somehow You Must Love Spammers!

I can’t help but feel a bit sorry for people who waste their time sending ridiculous comments to a huge number of blogs, because it indicates two things:

  • A lot of blog owners running WordPress apparently forget running Akismet, because somehow these auto spam providers must gain access to blogs somewhere since they keep trying to come through…
  • The whole point of a comment is to provide something VALUABLE to a discussion, so even when a spam comment comes through, they won’t get any of the organic traffic that a well written comment gets.

Now, you may be thinking: what in the world does this have to do with Macs?

In some ways, nothing, since WordPress is completely platform-independent running in your browser. But in other ways, I expect that some of my readers DO blog themselves, and thus my mentioning the free plugin Akismet may remind them that it might be high time to clean up their inboxes since a new e-mail arrives every time a comment is sent to your blog if you don’t have Akismet installed…

Have a nice weekend everyone. 🙂
