I know I asked for more Comments… but not bloody spam!!!

I know, I know… I asked for more Comments and now I’m getting more Comments. So why am I moaning here? Because I suspect a lot of them are real actual Comments from real actual people. I’m getting spam comments!

So okay, why do I believe this? Am I a paranoid schizophrenic with delusions of grandeur? I don’t think so (yeah I know, I would say that wouldn’t I?) – let me share my “evidence” before it’s laughed out of court –

In response to one of my most popular posts (“How to download and save streaming video from the internet, using Linux”) I have received Comments:

My brother suggested I would possibly like this blog. He was once totally right.

This post truly made my day. You cann’t imagine just how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thanks!

and

What’s up, always i used to check webpage posts here early in the break of day, because i like to learn more and more.

and

A person essentially help to make critically articles
I’d state. That is the very first time I frequented your web page and so far? I surprised with the analysis you made to create this actual put up extraordinary. Excellent activity!

and

Hello.This article was extremely remarkable, particularly because I was browsing for
thoughts on this subject last Tuesday.

and

each time i used to read smaller articles or reviews that also
clear their motive, and that is also happening with this
article which I am reading at this place.

All these Comments make no comment on the post they’re claiming to comment on. Some of them are bizarre, like maybe computer-generated? And all the Commentators have included a url which improves their Google score and can lead to Google Adverts revenue earned (every time a site’s url appears online, the site’s Google rating gets higher, and they can earn more from Google Ads).

Please don’t take this as a “don’t comment” warning. I want people, as many people as possible, commenting on my posts. But I want them to be relevant. What I’d really like is for readers to comment on my posts, others comment back, and before too long there are online conversations going on here, like that damn Bruce Schneier and others. I’ve been blogging here since 2007, and I’d really like I HATE HATE!!! become popular (I know I’ve got some regular readers and I love ’em, but I want more more more!

If I’m not posting stuff you want to get into conversations about me, use the CONTACT FORM button at the top of the page. Tell me what you like/hate/kill people for, and I’ll try to post about it. I don’t want this blog to be just a me-telling-you-stuff kind of place – I want lively discussions. I want to make my readers happy/sad/angry/peaceful/murderous. All you gotta do is hit the CONTACT FORM button.

Oh and please, no more spam. Or I’m gonna name and shame you, your email accounts and IP addresses and everything. I hate douchebags.
