A note about Comment/Post Moderation!

19 Mar

Just a quick note to mention that I know it must be frustrating to post a comment or post an article only to see it not immediately published. This moderation is selected by the blogware according to certain criteria that sometimes makes no sense. It is intended to stop the enormous amount of spamming that the blog undergoes these days. This is the price of being well read and linked to from all over the world so much so that spammers think posting a fake comment with a backlink will get them traffic to their websites or affiliate marketing sites. In fact, it won't because of the the no follow tags that are automatically added to their links. Google or other search engines will not list these as working links. However, they still persist… so please know that as soon as I see a moderated comment or post with a familiar name, I approve it immediately!

    Hi David;
    Thank you for advising us about the problems you encounter with spammers or people who try to improve their Google page rank on their own website through back-links. This is all part of our life with computers but we are happy to be part of flying in cyberspace. As usual with everything good comes something which may not be quite as desirable, but as long the good outweighs the negative we are always one step ahead!
    We thank you for all your hard work you do for us – most appreciatively! Where would we be without you – I shudder to think!
