A few days ago I posted, as a little aside to the deliberations and vote for a new Pope which was taking place in the Vatican at the time, a link to a site showing the Sistine Chapel. As with all things, this post seems to have creased a few brows. Someone, somewhere, wasn’t happy with the post and decided to express themselves through a comment:
Hi, I just wanted to tell you, you’re dead wrong. Your article doesn’t make any sense.
Your immediate thoughts must be something along the lines of ‘What? What is there here that is wrong? What doesn’t make sense?’ After all, it is merely a link with a quick guide on how to move the image and enjoy the entire glory of a single room cut off, temporarily as it happens, from visitors.
It makes sense only if you receive a mass of spam, and bother reading through those spam comments just to make sure a real comment hasn’t inadvertently been included. It is one of the spam comments which, when not directly related to the post itself, does make sense. Many of the others, trying to get through the various filters and build in links to commercial and fraudulent web sites, make no sense whatsoever, either from content or grammatically.
We’ve come a long way since the first sites – blogs or otherwise – started accepting comments. Here, from Lorelle, is a brief rundown on how things were, and how things are now – a blog, by the way, well worth keeping an eye on. Enjoy.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
