It Pains Me - but I can live with it!
There has been much talk (again) recently about site comments.
I Took A Short Cut - using real money!
This time instead of spending hours earning credits by reading posts and posting comments I took a shortcut and purchased 20 credits to buy 10 comments.
I put my first couple of requests out there and went to sleep on it.
Was it A Nightmare or a Happy Dream?
Well it was a bit of both.
I got 9 comments in all of which the first 4 were horrendous!
Seriously bad grammar and absolutely no benefit to my site.
They were disapproved because I refuse to pay for a comment which gives someone else a credit when they have Seriously not put any effort into their comment.
I Am Not One to Name Names
Even if I knew who they were - I wouldn't.
But for those who comment on posts please consider why a comment is being requested -
it is not for you to get a credit, it is because the site owner wants some quality content!
Read that again.
The following comments are 2 of the ones I disapproved.
"Of what use is this article review because I could hardly underground that you are trying to say and at some point it will seem like you are combining your central ideas with other sideline opinions and I think this will not add the required value to your blog but if you can harmonize your central point it will be okay."
I could definitely not "underground" it!
Something like a 61 word sentence with no single punctuation at all.
I have no problem with negative comments, in fact I welcome them as they are an opportunity to discuss.
Not worth a cent ...
And then this one ...
"This article is really not satisfying you should reorganize this post and make it to have directions so that you won't border your targeted audience by stressing them in finding what massage you are trying to convey to them because if you continue like that you may loose your targeted audience because they might loose interest in your post"
Again a 59 word sentence with zero punctuation that makes even less sense (if one can measure that numerically) than the number of punctuation marks!
Anyone for a "loose" "massage"?
And Finally - Thanks
To the 5 people (one person twice) who did leave acceptable comments and who did add value to my site.
I still have a few credits to go and I guess 4 bits of rubbish for 5 nuggets is not a bad return
Havve a great day everyone.
I have been ruthless and disapproved any comments which do not add value to my posts. Unfortunately that is a bigger percentage than the handfull I have approved. I've edited a few but at the end of the day if people are earning credits for comments and I am paying for them then they should at least make a decent effort.
