    [Comments] Six Simple Public Relations Efforts that Take Less than 10 Minutes
    Comment on Blog Posts. Due to Twitter, Google Plus, and myriad of other social platforms, the older sentiment of commenting on blog posts has fallen to the wayside, which is unfortunate for bloggers, but great for those who make thoughtful comments and want to get noticed by authors and others reading posts through to the end. Make it a habit to comment on industry-related and personal blogs of colleagues, consumers, and associated enthusiasts. By Cam Secore.

The only mean one of 59 comments, yet I’m focused on that one instead of the 58 nice ones. The 58 comments that mean something to me and that build the community here. Am I going to change the way I write or the topics I cover because of one mean comment?

    [Comments] Why You Should Never Comment on Blogs. Ever.
    This guest post is by David Hartstein of JG Visual. I’m sure you’ve heard well-reasoned, logical arguments for why you should be commenting on blogs: “You can be a part of the conversation happening out there.”. But, while there may be a burned, unpopped kernel of truth in these statements, none of them take into account the many reasons you should never comment on a blog. There is no room for mere opinions in the comment section of a blog.  It is a blog after all.  No feelings, just facts. Those other commenters probably know more than you anyway. Re-check.

    The above screenshot is a comment posted to AriWriter two hours ago. Because this blog is powered by WordPress and I run a spam detection plugin called Akismet that automatically places comments meeting certain criteria into a holding pattern, the bestiality comment was not published. This was made up and this is further proof the above comment about BDSM is spam: Spammers try to be clever in their comments, such as Andrew Joseph (not his real name) who uses different email addresses and websites in the hope I would publish his comments.

    [Comments] Meet Everett Bogue: A Blogger Who Only Wants Blog Readers Who Tweet Because Everyone Else is a Low-life
    I first wrote about Everett Bogue six months ago when I was displeased he turned off the ability for people to comment on his blog. If a blogger wants to turn off comments, so be it. blinked again when I read a more recent summary of why he abhors comment sections on all blogs, alluding to people like you who enjoy commenting as the scum of the earth. Many blogs will encourage you to ‘join the conversation’ in a place called “The Comments”. The comments” is where your good ideas and time (your most valuable commodity) goes to die. Whatever.

    [Comments] Blog Commenters: Question For You
    Perusing through Dan Kennedy’s arguments in the name of civil discourse why he insists people write their full names — that is, first name and last name, and nothing but that — on blog comments, I applaud. realize this will mean fewer comments. Perhaps some of our frequent pseudonymous commenters will come out from behind their online personae and continue posting. Perhaps some folks who have held back from commenting for fear of being anonymously attacked will now feel safe to weigh in. Related posts: Top 47 Blog Commenters in February 2010.

The WordPress plugin shows me two graphs that indicate 1,679 potential blog comments were marked as spam.
