Coping With Frustrations
I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets frustrated with our online businesses. It's not the technical side. It's the human side.
Lately, I've been receiving a lot of comments that just aren't comments. They're reviews.
I totally understand when someone is new, and possible doesn't understand. Everyone has to learn the proper ways of doing things. But come on... when you see the previous posts ahead of yours, don't you realize what the writer is looking for?
Today, I received a "review" instead of a comment on a review post, again. But this time it was a little nasty. She claimed she ran my article through a plagiarism checker and found it to be mostly plagiarized. Then she claimed to have found significant spelling errors and such.
First off, I knew I didn't plagiarize. And I use both the spell checker in site content and Grammarly. So I didn't get too upset, but went and checked it out anyway.
The tool I used said my post was 100% unique, and no spelling errors!
So why would someone write a comment like that? Maybe they were a member of the program I reviewed? I didn't say anything bad about it, but did recommend Wealthy Affiliate. The comparison I provided showed the differences and why WA is better.
So I decided to write her an email. A nice email...:). First off her web address just showed a website that was published but with nothing on it. So I used the email she provided in the post and talked about what I found. I thanked her for commenting but told her I had to delete her comment. I also expressed that we writers are looking for comments related to the topic of the post.
So what do you think? Should I just have ignored her? It felt cathartic to write to her, though... haha.
