SPAM comments are like a bad hygiene

While reading this post about comment SPAM at Lorelle on WordPress I had an enlightment. An analogy. SPAM comments are like a bad hygiene for your blog. It’s like someone who doesn’t take a shower – noone dies, but a lot of people suffer. And the chances of getting a nasty desease rise significantly too.

I write a lot here about how your blog should speak well of you and your ability to communicate, so what does a comment spam covered blog say about you? Here’s a few of my judgment calls on spam covered blogs:

  • Lazy
  • Careless
  • Procrastinating
  • No self respect
  • Lack of self confidence
  • Inability to research
  • Inability to problem solve
  • Lack of follow through
  • Lack of commitment
  • Doesn’t care about others
  • Just doesn’t care
