I've been requesting comments recently for my posts on my website, but today is the first time I've ever disapproved 2 comments in one day and that is very concerning to me. Most of the time I edit them, not super extensively, but enough to where it seems more relevant.
The two comments I disapproved had absolutely nothing remotely related to the topic of my post. All they said was how well it was written and that they will share with others. No opinion whatsoever or even any mention of my article topic. I'll share one of those comments:
"thanks a lot for sharing such amazing post marked with brevity expression on statement I came across this post while doing research online and I think you have done a great work, enlightened and educative and very helpful to us all and your choice of words and skills of writing makes it easy to understand I plane on recommending this website to to friend and family"
Now take that compared to a comment that I approved and truly was relevant to what my article was talking about:
"Hi, great article about an ever-increasing challenge while being online. I have received these kinds of phishing attempts myself several times. I have always been suspicious about email messages which seem to come from Paypal (as in your example). I have checked both the email address and the body of the email itself for irregularities and managed to detect the attempt.
I also keep in mind when my last activities on Paypal as an additional check. If the email is outside the timeframe transactions normally gets done, the red light starts flashing."
Notice the difference? I've noticed others have talked about seeing an increase in those type of comments that are not relevant to the article topic. I was nice and explained why I disapproved the comments and specifically what I'm looking for so that they hopefully won't be disapproved by others in the future.
How often have any of you had to disapprove comments and are you seeing more of those type of comments that are being disapproved?
