Copycat Comments in Site Comments
Since writing posts more frequently for my website I have noticed a troubling situation develop related to the same members.
Comments on My Scam Reviews
When I write about a scam, they say how valuable they found my review and that they have friends who are making lots of money from my reported program. And that they are going to join. Then I am thanked for sharing the scam with them. Strange response don't you think?
Another situation is where more than one member submits a comment that is word for word like another members comments. Except for a minor change or addition.
Here is an example of two separate comments:
While reading, I know that ACN Inc. formally called American Communications Network is an MLM company that has been in business since 1993. ACN resells through its IBO’s using a multilevel marketing business model.
While reading, I know that ACN Inc. formally called American Communications Network is an MLM company that has been in business since 1993. ACN resells through its IBO’s using a multilevel marketing business model. Now I know that Donald Trump made millions of dollars from the company from speaking at the company’s conventions and making videos for its IBO’s to use in the recruiting process. We are planning to join the company soon.
This second one had an addition that repeated facts from my post, In fact all the comments repeated my post.
Regardless, all of these just replicated what I already wrote rather than giving original comments.
At first, I brushed these off and approved them. But when I noticed that two comments were duplicates that I shared above, I drew the line and rejected the second one and said why in my response.
All these members are from outside the US.
I have a theory why this is happening. And it may also be connected why it is so hard to get posts to give site comments. They are grabbed so fast leaving nothing left to comment on.
50 cents may not be much in the US. But when added up to many dollars can be worth more in certain countries. I have nothing against members earning extra money this way as long as the comments are original and meaningful.
Am I Being Too Critical?
I am writing this post to find out if I am alone in receiving comments like these? Or am I being too critical?
Looking forward to your responses. I sure appreciate it.
