Sooner or later, if you own a blog you’re going to be exposed to the one of dirty little secrets of the blog world: comment spam. I guess it’d be no surprise to most people that they’re spam in comments. You see it every where, but you probably only see 1% of the spam that is left due to filters and other settings.

So, if you like this blog or any other blog out there. Same the blogger some time and think about your comments. Don’t leave spam in the comments. If you’re going to comment, say something productive (preferably something related to the post, cross-posting is normally confusing to everyone but you). If you’re going to leave a link have it be relevant to the conversation. And if your comment isn’t put up, don’t keep re-posting it. It’s probably been deleted for a reason.
