We truly appreciate everyone who takes the time to leave a legitimate comment here on our blog. However, you should be aware that as participants in the “I Follow” blog comments movement, we get a healthy number of comments that are left purely for the link value and not to contribute to the discussion.
For the record, we’re more than willing to help spread the “link love” …IF you’re willing to contribute in some meaningful way to the discussion at hand. Hint: Comments like “Hey, great blog!” with a backlink ain’t gonna cut it, amigo.
(If you have no idea what the heck I just said, don’t even worry about it 🙂 )
To keep honest people honest, and run the spammers outta dodge, we use more than one spam-killing device on the inner workings of the blog. In addition, I personally monitor and approve each and every comment, and we reserve the right to delete a link from a comment or to delete a comment all together if we feel it’s necessary.
Now if we end up inadvertantly deleting the link from a comment that was well-intended, apologies in advance, but I you understand our only goal in this is to ensure the highest quality experience for everyone.
