You Know Its Good When.
My Previous Post
Yesterday, I wrote a post describing an issue I had.
I was perturbed with the SiteComments platform. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't enough to not use it. It was just enough to write a blog post about it.
It had to do with spam commenters that are quite obviously commenting just for the credits, not for what it is truly there for:
To help fellow business owners.
What I Expected
Honestly, I expected a lot of agreement. I hoped for people to take action; I wanted people to start disapproving the comments they receive that have no relevance to their articles and posts.
If we do that, we take the power away from those that are abusing it, right?
What I Got
In an extremely punctual and prompt manner, I received an abundance of comments, two of them from Carson. I also received a private message from him.
His entire demeanor was poised toward service, and ensuring that my problem wasn't avoidable on my side of things.
I assured him wholeheartedly that I greet comments that are relevant, even if they seem to take away from the article. It gives an excellent opportunity to add to your position, to give further evidence, to gain confidence from your ever-growing following.
I just cannot stand those that read the title, then spew a gibberish comment that has nothing to do with the majority or entirety of the article itself.
It doesn't do what the platform is meant for. It doesn't help anyone, and has the potential of derailing someone that may be on the fence about their future in this business and community.
I must say, the response from Carson was unexpected. It was also amazingly appreciated.
This is most definitely the community for me, and one tiny bump will not ruin my ride on the information highway.
Every day, I am reminded that Wealthy Affiliate was the right choice.
