Really? Is This For Real?
Hello, WA members.
This post will be short, and I will try to make it to the point. Because REALLY? I mean is this for real?
I requested comments on a post last night. I am writing reasonably complicated information about DNA coding and genetics to promote a product I am selling.
But before I go into this, I want to say that for two years, I have supported site comments. I have changed the wording to fit my needs. I have edited each one in grammar (which I pay for.) I have overlooked poorly understood comments and rewritten them.
My excuses were, people won't leave perfect comments on my posts, so I shouldn't expect this from site comments. Not everyone speaks English as the first language. Some are in a hurry, and I can help them out a bit.
I have written blogs on here giving suggestions on how to improve comments.
But this time is the worst I have ever seen it. I just disapproved 4 out of 7 comments. None of the disapprovals fit into my list of excuses.
My reasons for disapproval are
- The grammar and spelling were so bad I could not begin to understand what the person was trying to say.
- One person read the title and commented on that and about how they were so excited to see this post and to buy it.
- Another person talked about something other than DNA, coding, and athletic ability. It didn't even come close to what the article said.
- And the other person talked about how heredity can help you choose a career.
I am going to thank the three people who took the time to read the article before commenting.
BUT GIVE ME A BREAK ON THE OTHER 4!!!!
My site is vital to me. I pay for the comments. The comments are an extension of my google rankings, my word count, my integrity, and my income.
