Follow Up Post: Dear Spammers

So, chances are the majority of the Chinese spam comments I'm getting are from some automated script OR maybe even just mindless blog spammers who can't even read English. Either way, no one has stepped up yet and submitted a legitimate blog post, even after I agreed to FREELY link out if they did so (See my original blog: Dear Spammers). *sigh*

Don't worry, I'm aware that probably no one is reading this in the first place, so I'm not completely oblivious to the fact that the real reason no one has submitted a legitimate post is more likely because NO ONE is reading my blog....  but still.... I had an idea.

Today I created a new blog called: Comment Love

So, dear Spammers, if you are reading this, please feel free to Blog Spam away.... Just click here:
Bring on the Comment Spam!

As for the rest of you, you might find this little experiment interesting. Why not help me out by leaving a totally mindless comment (on my Comment Love blog) with a link back to yourself.... you might even get a good link out of it! :-)

Hi Jen,

Just found your blog through your Twitter account. I think you're funny and smart and entertaining. I moderate several blogs and forums, so I know exactly what you're talking about. I love the ones in Russian. They think those are gonna get approved? Not! Keep up the good writing! Your following will build!

P.S. I haven't used Blogger in years, so the blog my profile links to isn't really active...

HI John Holling! Nice to meet you.... thanks for your sweet comment. How great to get a real comment from a real person! :-)

I'd love to spend the time it takes to build a following and write more intelligent pieces, but to be honest, this blog and most of my others are really just an afterthought... my "real work" keeps me buys most of the time.... but, I do have a passion for writing...

See ya on Twitter!

Hi,

As far as I'm french, I'm pretty sure I didn't get everything you explained in this note...

Just a question : you still get spam even if your links are tagged 'nofollow' ?
