Hello Everybody,

I have been a member for 4 years. I love it here and I hope I will be able to continue for many years to come.

During my time here, I have seen a l

Lol! Sounds like someone is in love with you and your Kombucha tea post friend. Or maybe, there are some people who just don't give a hoot about what they write. I usually try to edit a little error now and then, giving people a chance to earn their credit, but this comment didn't even mentioned anything about your post. It doesn't deserve to be on there. Disapprove it with zero tolerance as you would like. All the best!

Good Morning John,

To tell you the truth, I did not understand the comment very well. Must be the language of the younger generation. All these abbreviations do not mean anything to me. Is that how people message nowadays on their mobile phone?
I have often edited myself or PM the people directly asking them to edit so I can approve. When I go to notifications, I could go to their profile but since the update that is not possible anymore.

Regards, Taetske

I agree. Those abbreviations and "slang" ways puzzle me sometimes as I would have to look them up. Lol! But at some point, you have to make the ultimate decision whether you want those low comments on your posts or not. All the best!

Good Morning John,

In this particular case, and as in my eyes it was complete gibberish, this comment was not acceptable. My websites are in "normal" English and the comments should be too.

All the best to you too, Taetske

Hi Taetske,
There have been a lot of comments like these recently I received 6 in a row that were religious gibberish so I rejected them and hope that he has been asked to discontinue his disrespectful and wasteful commenting.
We can only decline these comments and make a point.
I hope you get better in the future.

Hugs
Lily 😊🎶

Good evening Lily,

The quality of comments has been in decline lately. Most times I have to disapprove, and often I report it too. SiteSupport will take care of these people. They are like mosquitos on our platform, a nuisance.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Taetske

They are really annoying.
That's life.

Hi Taetske, it is amazing what some people try to get away with. I too got a generic comment to one of my posts this morning. I disapproved of it and gave my reasons. I just hope I get my 2 credits back.
The comment you got is so out of whack I can not believe it. This person has no shame and has no problem with making a fool of themselves.
Sometimes you have to rise above the nonsense.

Best wishes,
Michael

Good evening Michael,

They will get away with it but not for much longer.
Soon we will see a new WA rule. You will have to fulfill a certain criteria to be able to comment.

Normally you will get a new comment replacing the one you have disapproved.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Taetske

I can understand why your tolerance level has dropped to zero. Is there any way to block this spammer from accessing your site. I believe there is a tool to block specific people from accessing your site in the future. I hope you can put a block to this individual.

Good afternoon Jerry,

I got this comment through SiteComment. I disapproved and I also reported it to SiteSupport with a screenshot included. WA is aware there are some "strange" members who are here only to earn money.
Soon there will be a new rule in place where those types of comments will not be possible anymore.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Taetske

Looks like you have a star struck fan there, Taetske.

Always good to have fans.

Some members unfortunately don't get the the process of creating and placing content comments.

This appears to create on going issues, which causes frustration, for members who are genuinely seeking relavent comments, as some members try and game the system.

It is good to highlite issues, and bring them into the open, so folks don't have to suffer in silence.

As this is an ongoing issue perhaps the algorithmic aspect of site comments needs to be tightened up. Even some form of moderation to keep a lid on comment deliquency.

On the bright side, you have to wonder what on earth were they thinking.

Just curious, Taetske, what is your batting average when it comes to comments, 10 out of 10 being good 2 out of 10 being good. In the latter the system is broke beyond repair.

With your comment reject it.

Good afternoon Alex,

It is nice to have fans, but not this type.

Since the money aspect was introduced a lot of "strange" people popped up. I even have seen gang like structures over time.

2 days ago I reported 4 comments to SiteSupport, screenshot included. Here is part of their answer:

We have plans to update the SiteComment platform and part of that update will be limitations on who can leave comments. Appreciate your detailed feedback

There you see one should report these things so they can clean up the platform.
Lately it has been 50/50. I hope with the new rule we will get mostly good and genuine comments again.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Taetske

That is good news, Taetske, I have to agree on the comment platform, some I have never seen or heard from in all my time here on the platform other than random comments.

It is good to be part of a dynamic and progressive platform like WA where integrity is key.

Look forward to the upgrade of site comments.
Alex
