Dilemma Regarding Comments
I have a dilemma regarding comments I requested and received. I paid for these comments. Some comments I received were just not much at all. I feel cheated in a way.
I've considered not approving them but then I feel bad. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I remember last year I drafted a comment for someone on their post for their website. I took time to review the post and I went to other areas of their website too. I drafted what I thought was a qualified and detailed comment. My comment was not approved and I remember how I felt. It stung.
I don't get a lot of time to do many comments or feedback so when I do I take the time to review the post and that person's website and I think about what I'm going to write. I have to say I am disappointed with some comments I received. It's like these people went through my post, which was short granted, and hurriedly wrote a commnet without thinking about what they were going to say, and they didn't spell-check or check their grammar.
This post is not meant to complain. I just want to point out that when we go to someone's website and read their post that we should take the time to review that post, go to their website and get a general feel for what their site is about and craft a nice comment. Other people are going to read those comments.
In fact, I was on someone's website yesterday and read some of the comments that were left and I was surprised that the administrator had approved them. Do we not care about the comments that are left on our sites? Shouldn't we care about quality and not just quantity?
Do you understand my dilemma? I am going to have to think about this before I decide what to do.
