Empress Maruja is a Spam?

5 04 2007


You put a comment–a decent comment–in a blog, and you realize that it is being subjected to moderation.

You thought that it is okay.  After all, every blogger has the option to moderate comments to make sure they are not spam.

But what if you see that your comment is yet to be published, while other comments after you begin to appear like crazy?

You thought there was some sort of a mistake, so you comment again for a follow-up.

You check again several hours later and see that the comments continue to appear in that blog, but your two comments have yet to see the light of publishing.

Would you get angry?

If you ask me, no.  However, I was frustrated.

I felt discriminated, ignored, belittled, unappreciated.

I took a deep breath in… It’s just another blog.

I know there are other bloggers out there who appreciate this fat ass.

Tsk.  Nasira tuloy ang five-day blog break ko.  Kasalanan “mo” ito.  Hmpf!

UPDATE:  I visited the blog again.  Apparently, since I’m not one of his “friends in the blogosphere” a first-time commenter in that blog, my comment would have to go through hell and water just to get approved.  It passed the test.

Haha kaya ako, hindi ako nagco-comment sa mga blogs na indi man lang bumisita sa blog ko. Jahe kaya ang ma-ignore. Nangyari na sakin yan, tipong sipag sipagan ako magpost ng comment sa blog niya tapos after 5 months, hindi pa rin ako nakalagay sa blog list samantalang andami na niya nilagay na iba. Yun ang badtrip.

Mine is different, I used to comment on a certain blog but recently my comments were always flagged as spams, not sure why. But if I go the long way of informing the blogger, he politely unflag my comments. But I stopped anyway.

and since Akismet is now widely used, we have no control over spam that gets into this list… unless we actually look at each and everyone, and find those, who unfortunately, were flagged as spam but were actually not…

in my blog alone, i am getting more than 300 to 400 spams a day, and when i don’t check them for 2 or 3 days, they pile up on me… so, those that were not spam were simply left behind… sorry na lang…

ganun talaga e…

Just experience this thing also Empress! I don’t know if we mean the same blog. Well, who cares? I won’t go back to it either! I’d rather lavish my own site. Anyway, thanks for visiting Empress to my site. I’m new here and I appreciate every one who left a comment. Thanks talaga!

Visit naman kayo mga bloggers !

I don’t sweat stuff like that (as I get older, I require less and less drama in my life and that includes worrying about stuff that isn’t life and death to me), but yeah… I can fully understand why’d you get frustrated. But, based on perusing just a few of your entries, it looks like you have lots of fans. You are loved. 😀

Btw, you should probably update your “My blog is worth $1,693.62” image in your sidebar. I just checked that link… and your blog is actually currently worth “$20,887.98” (that image value is not dynamic variable). But then again, you can’t really put a price on the “quality” of a blog… As long as some people (the people you want to attract to your blog) like your stuff, that’s all that counts… (well, to me, that is). 😀

L8tr days.
