Commenting On Someone's WA Blog Is Not Spam

Last Update: July 05, 2017

It's sad that I'm even writing this right now, but I was just told that I was SPAMMING someone's WA blog by writing a comment on it.

To be fair I did write one previous comment on it that the author deleted. When I wrote a second comment inquiring about why my first comment was deleted the author told me that they did not know me and to stop spamming their site(WA blog).

If you want to know what SPAM really looks like then take a look at this set of rules that Kyle laid out:

and then look at your WA activity feed. You'll quickly realize how much "spam" and violations of those rules that goes on. You'll also realize that the person you are ranting about in your post is just trying to point out those rules and the people you are encouraging are actually breaking those rules.

However, that's neither here nor there.

What I'm really getting at is that if you want to delete my comments that's fine. Just realize that I'm not going to spend any more time interacting with you on your blogs or answering any questions you may ask.

You obviously don't care to hear a dissenting voice or an opposing opinion. You obviously don't care about the time it took me to type quite a lengthy reply. Therefore I'm not going to spend any more of my time interacting with you.

Edit: While you are concerned about people quitting because other people are complaining about their off topic posts, it seems that you're not concerned about people quitting WA because of all of the off topic posts!

It would be so much nicer if people would just follow the rules that have been set out for the benefit of all. As it is now I'm very choosy about which posts I read because of all the off-topic "noise".

This is a business website not social media.

I agree Marion, but I think we're preaching to the choir. I really think that if certain rules aren't going to be enforce then they should delete them from that list. What's the point of rules when people are flagrantly violating them?

Ultimately, it's really just an honor system and as such some people will follow it and others will think they are above it and lash out when they're made aware that they're not following the rules.

For the most part I tend to ignore most of it, but sometimes I just feel compelled to comment.

I would go with what MKearns has said. If you dwell on it you will just get negative vibes from it and it's not worth it

Yeah, I'm over it. That person can keep on living in their fantasy world.

With so many different cultures, backgrounds, ages, etc it stands to reason that there would be friction. I must have not opened the post in question. I delete most of them anyway. No time to spend on them.

Spamming is one thing perceived intrusion is another.

That's a good distinction Michael, but what was I intruding on? A bashing party for a WA member?

Anything someone posts on their WA blog is available to the entire community to comment on, so it's definitely not an intrusion. If somebody needs a safe space where everyone sings Kumbaya, it's probably not the best thing to go around attacking WA members.

It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth that someone is going to accuse me of spamming which is definitely not what I was doing and instead of taking the opportunity to hear a different perspective they are just going to silence them. Just another person for me to ignore at WA.

I really wish there was a button I could use to permanently eliminate people from my WA activity feed. I can avoid clicking on their posts and comments in my feed, but unfortunately I can't avoid having it show up completely.

There is bound to be discord In a great community like this. Even the best of machines has friction in it's moving parts. If a part is worn, move on, discard replace! As we focus on positivity the noise will fade!
